Wings from the Ashes

About

 

As material for his new production Roman Viktyuk chose the best tragedy of XVII century British playwright John Ford – an outstanding contemporary of Shakespeare. The director preferred to change the original title of the play “Tis pity she is a Whore”, since he, as always, lays an important for him idea into this production   – the idea of ​​sanctity of love.  According to R. Viktyuk it is the people who kept the innocence of children in their souls, that can love the purest love. Therefore, he called the performance “Wings from the Ashes.”

This is the story of love and death of Giovanni and Anabella, brother and sister. Roman Viktyuk stages it as a dream about holy children, as a dream of the sublime, of purification through suffering, of unification of the loving souls in heavens.

The works of great artists, including one of the founders of Art Deco style Alexandra Exter, director and playwright Antonin Artaud, minimalist composer John Cage, became the source of inspiration for the Master. Thanks to the music, color and lighting scores of the performance, R. Viktyuk revived the very theater space, making it to move and sound.
