PROJECT ‘EUROPE’

 

They say ‘the cradle’ of mankind is Africa. Maybe. They still have no solid proof.

But the undisputed fact is - the ‘cradle’ of Modern Art and Theatre is Europe.

Maybe Africa and both the Americas have a much bigger population but they are still learning and copying what was created by the old, elegant and mischievous lady Europe.

Of course, we have stubborn Britain in the middle...

Of course, we have Russia between Europe and Asia... but Russian Theatre was also imported from Europe... and anyway Russian Theatre is something obscure and unique too...and we also have our ‘Russian Seasons Project’ (see more)

 

Strangely enough, here in Britain, European Theatre is still a very rare and exotic fruit. Of course, both audiences and theatre people here know ancient Greek tragedy...and you can see on the theatre posters, the  names of Moliere, Brecht, Ibsen, Strindberg, Lorca and Sartre... Some crazy directors even go for Lope de Vega, Piranello, Schnitzler and Dario Fo.

But! ...

All of these great names are only the tip of the huge iceberg ...mostly unknown in Britain. British audience haven’t  had the chance to see plays of Crommelynck, Maeterlinck, Ghelderode,  Durrenmatt, Frisch, Hauptmann, Handke, Betti, Claudel, Nothomb, Arrobal and many others... Even one of the ‘fathers’ of Theatre Absurd, Ionesco, is known only for his ‘Chairs’ and ‘Bold Primadonna’... But he wrote 13 volumes of fantastic plays!

 

During the last 15 years our company has already presented many of these ‘obscure’ European plays in this country and we are looking forward to carrying on this exciting work!
