Russian King Lear in Beijing

02 Ноября 2017 English

On October 25 GITIS students from Kamenkovich and Krimov directing class played King Lear at the WTEA 2017 International Theatre Festival in Beijing.
 
Shakespearian Lear turned into a dialog between the young actors and their country, their country's system, traditions, that turned into that system. The production designer Katerina Shargina centered the look of the set on the two universally recognizable images: grand mother's carpet and fur coats.
 
The show took place within an out-of-competition program, nevertheless, students Timur Galeev and Rodion Barishev won in Best Acting nomination.
