The artists will perform the play “Fairy Tale” as part of the XI international festival “Puppet Theater – Without Borders”.
how reported on the official website of the Altai Territory, the show will take place on May 16. On the stage of the Provincial Theater, the actors will present the production of “Pasha” to the Moscow public. It was created based on the stories of Pavel Selukov from the book “Get Tarkovsky”. This is a story from the life of those who are “over 35”. The play is played by young actors along with puppets. The faces of actors and puppets merge with abstract forms during the performance. The lyrical heroes of different stories are transformed into one character named Pasha. Together with the viewer, he understands his relationship with his father, friends, women.
The performance was directed by Alexander Yanushkevich, a multiple nominee for the National Theater Award “Golden Mask” from Minsk. The artist is the winner of the National Theater Award in the field of theatrical art for children “Harlequin” Anton Bolkunov from Alma-Ata. Alexey Goncharenko from Moscow became the playwright.
According to the director of the Altai Puppet Theater Nadezhda Vasilyeva, it is a great pride to perform at such a major festival. I am very pleased that the work of the theater is in demand not only at home, but also in other cities. Especially in Moscow, where the metropolitan audience is very sophisticated in matters of theatrical productions.
