RESIDENCE OF THE THEATER "PRACTICE" AT THE NEW STAGE. WORKSHOP OF DMITRY BRUSSINIKIN
The performance of Maxim Didenko on the music of Ivan Kushnir is built on a square foundation, on four streams. This is a musical and ritual Jewish culture, a culture of military marches, Ukrainian folk music and songs, Catholic choral music. "Konarmiya" is a ballet-oratorio that connects electronic music, ensemble singing, allegorical "revived" pictures and dramatic fragments.
The play is based on the stories of Isaac Babel, united by the theme of the Civil War. The Red Element, the First Cavalry Army under the command of Seeds of the Budenny, moves along Ukrainian-Polish land to seize Warsaw. What is the nature of revolution and war? The habitual world undergoes destruction, and everything that generations rely on depreciates, everything that seemed unshakable, collapses under the influence of popular revolt.
Author: Based on the stories of Isaac Babel
