“THE DREAM OF RIDICULOUS MAN”

After a fantasy story by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

PREMIÈRE

Director: Milda Mičiulytė 
Performers: Arnas Danusas, Taura Kvietinskaitė

 Duration: 40 min.


The play focuses on the two most noble and indispensable to one’s morale feelings – shame and pity. A person who is able to possess them hasn’t yet lost the sense of humanity. The situation where these two feelings are analysed is loneliness deliberately chosen by a person and arrogance towards others.  What happens to a person who refuses to have human feelings?  What might encourage someone to behave like that?
The main theme revealed in the etude is the idea of ​​destruction.  A ridiculous man ruins the planet. He sins. The themes of sin and its redemption are not foreign to Dostoevsky and are emphasised on the stage to raise the key question – who can redeem a person’s sins and give this person a chance to change? 


All events of the festival are free-of-charge.

Limited seating available. Priority tickets (“Balkono žetonai”/“Balcony chips”) will be distributed 30 min before the beginning of the of the play at the location of the event.
