A. P. Chekhov

Date of the opening:

3 October 2020

Running time:

2h 30′

The Seagull of Chekhov presents the path that the current creator – be it a writer, artist or theatre-man – goes from the artistic motivation to create, from the torturous need of the novelty and originality till his Ars poetica – which is often disappointing. We must have it under a new form. If we can’t do that, let us rather not have it at all. – this is the initial ideal of The Seagull’s main character, Treplev, a young rural writer, who is also experimenting with theatre-making. He arrives at his final realization through failure and disappointments: the form is not important, the creation have to be honest and direct, and it “must pour freely from the author’s heart.”
