Director: Elena Ionova.
The performance is based on the poems of contemporary Ural poets, included in the «Anthology of Modern Urals Poetry» (compiled by V.O. Kalpidi).
The play is a kind of experiment: is it possible to create a whole literary work on such a literary basis, is it possible to deduce from the texts of various authors of full-fledged characters and find a story that is able to tie everything together?
The Ural mountains, filled with their mystical energy, penetrate the poetry of the authors and form a special imagery. Poetic texts, in turn, dictate a certain scale and visuals. Thus, on the stage a whole world unfolds, full of archetypes, reincarnations and strange creatures.
The project received support at the Tavrida All-Russian Educational Forum.
Duration: 45 minutes.
