„2 Dark Tale”
The piece is inspired by Dostoevsky's "Crime and Punishment" and "The Gambler". The melt of these two storylines brings us into the contradictory journey to the place where the stakes are- dignity, morality, love and life at the end. Drawing the parallels between personages of 2 novels- we could compare the Gambler and the Murderer, old ladies, shark loan Alena Ivanovna and Babulia- both as the victims, Polina and Sophia Marmeladova as 2 sides of Russian female character. The figures of Croupier and the Investigator, or the Judge, shifting the roles and the positions like rotation in the revolver or in the roulette. This perspective gives a chance to look at the quite heavy matters of author's " human psychology " with a dozen of good humor and irony.
If I'd need to describe the production in short- I'd call it "black humor physical- mime comedy”
