SÚČASNÉ RUSKÉ DIVADLO: SPOMIENKY NA BUDÚCNOSŤ
Contemporary Russian theatre: Memories of the future
Languages of publication
The year 2019 was declared the Year of the Theatre in Russia. The theatre not only maintains its important position here, but it is also an increasingly active tool for communication between creators and the public. In this context, the study focuses on the distinctive themes and forms of contemporary Russian theatre. It reveals the modern developmental tendencies of Russian theatre culture, which reflect both past and present and raise an urgent question about the future – personal, national and world wide. Through selected productions and theatrical personalities presented at the Golden Mask Festival 2019, the author captures the new approaches of creators to classical dramatic and prosaic works, as well as a way of reflecting on Russia’s history, its national symbols and myths in production texts by contemporary Russian playwrights.
