Show for Children
A. Pushkin, “Eugene Onegin”
The Dmitry Krymov Laboratory is planning to start a series of 4 shows for children, called “In Their Own Words.” Works of “grown-up literature” will be retold by four characters from various countries – a Czech, a Finn, a Frenchwoman, and a Russian. The theme of the first show is Pushkin’s poem, “Eugene Onegin.”
The show’s creators use the “key" of children’s theatre to open the door to a secret adult world, and tell us about it not through an “encyclopedia of Russian life,” but through an interest in the poet’s own personality – “such a happy person, though in fact very serious and sad, and who was later murdered.”
The series is to be continued with shows about similar works of literature, like Chekhov’s “Sakhalin Island,” Gogol’s “Dead Souls,” and Marx’s “Das Kapital.”
The show won The Moscow Komsomolets Theatre Award in 2016, in the category "Best Show for Children and Teenagers"
The show won the award of the Union of Theatre Makers of Russia "The Hit of the Season" in 2017.
The show was presented in Riga (Latvia), Tallinn (Estonia).
