About

The theme of Artist and Power Roman Viktyuk has already addressed in several performances, i.e. The Master and Margarita, Salome, King-Harleqiun. Now Viktyuk gives a different perspective to the theme in Andrey Maksimov’s play Masquerade of Marquis de Sade. Will the character succeed to get out of the hands of “the high and mighties”, avoid the temptation to be “one of them” or to be side by side. The theme of Artist and Power is very important today, this very idea makes people to go out to the streets and the squares. And the eternal question remains: “Who wins?”. Question without answer.

Press

The fate of the controversial Marquis, who spent 17 years in prison and ended his life in a hospital for the insane, is an ideal material to look at the relationship of creator and power, inevitably causing an analogy with today’s time. In Roman Viktyuk’ production de Sade (Dmitry Bozin), his beloved Lacoste, a fanatical revolutionary Justina, Inspector Mare and other characters are solving the philosophical and everyday questions of sexual liberation to the music of The Tiger Lillies, while the performance is torn in a range of emotions from homeric laughter to tragic pause.
