EXCLUSIVE ONE TIME ONLY PERFORMANCE BY LEADING RUSSIAN THEATRE TEATR.DOC Misha & Lena

Pushkin House is delighted to present an exclusive performance of the play “Misha and Lena” by ground-breaking Russian theatre company Teatr.doc. This deeply moving play is about Mikhail Ugarov and Elena Gremina, the founders of Teatr.doc using material from their social media posts over many years, telling the story of their own relationship and that of the theatre, and the problems they faced right up to their untimely deaths in April and May 2018. Gremina and Ugarov brought a new voice to Russian theatre, and documented political repressions in Russia over recent years. Followed by Q&A with Zarema Zaudinova, during which she will talk about the history of Teatr.doc & its future. This event is organised in association with the Stanislavski Centre at Rose Bruford College and ARCC.

Premiere Screening: Onegin (The Red Torch Theatre)

Timofey Kulyabin's Golden Mask Award winning Onegin removes all expectations of Pushkin's novel in verse and places you not in some historical epoch, but in today's world, immersed in the inner thoughts, hopes, despairs, passions and disappointments that drift in, through and around the 4 central figures, Onegin, Tatiana, Olga and Lensky. There are no grand balls, no fans, no lorgnettes, no "Encyclopedia of Russian life". Just a quiet love story that perfectly conveys the attitude of the great poet and how very much his masterwork still resonates with our 21st century reality.
