Vanya. Ten years after

blitz theatre group, 2014
A message to the future of humanity. In my end is my beginning.

Time present and time past are both perhaps present in time future. We go on.

And allow me to lift up my eyes to you every moment of my life as to a mountain, that protects me.

I am very much looking forward to seeing you again like a whole completely new kingdom.

The three protagonists of Chekhov’s play, Vanya, Elena and Astrov try to remember fragments of their past life, using texts of the original play mixed with texts of I. Bergman, M. Tsvetayeva and T.S. Elliot.
