Csehov - Kiss Csaba

Date of the opening:

27 September 2014

Running time:

1h 30′


Studio performance in the main hall

Eight short stories by Cekhov form the basis of Csaba Kiss‘ play which all merge into one single text in an interesting context with precise dramaturgy. The genre of text infused with grotesque humor and various comical scenes is: male-fairy tale. Various stories of three troupers are intervined and add various pieces to the puzzle like appearance of a mysterious woman, Irina Bikulina. Flight of women and romantic love, lewdness and death defying loyalty – only so many contradictory brush strokes paint the picture of this make-believe woman, but the question of what exactly happened to her, remains open until the end.
