Theater festival in Israel
The Kostanai Russian Drama Theater successfully toured in Israel. The audience was very warm to host the Kazakh artists. Performances were held as part of the "Theater Divertisment” festival. The Kazakh troupe toured to Israel for the second time.
DOGMA GELLER, EXECUTIVE PRODUCER, THEATRE DIVERTISSEMENT FESTIVAL:
- For 7 years of the festival’s existence we have visited a huge number of theaters and the Kostanai Theater staged here for the second time. We really liked the work of the Kostanai performers and we decided to invite them again.
The Kazakh artists presented the Siren and Victoria play to the sophisticated spectator. According to the scenario, the action takes place in one apartment. The troupe of three actors managed to turn the modern life into a real comedy. Three people: a businesswoman, a young scientist and a confused clumsy guy in a closed space try to build relationships.
ALEKSANDER LIOPA, CHIEF STAGE DIRECTOR, KOSTANAI RUSSIAN DRAMA THEATER:
- For the first glance, this is satirical humor canvas which hides behind the deepest tragedy of today's life. Nowadays, people are like planets of different solar systems. To understand each other and collide with each other are a huge problem. This performance is about this problem.
The leading actor is Ruslan Bushinsky. He performs an unusual role: a loving intellectual who doesn’t know how to behave in an extraordinary situation.
RUSLAN BUSHINSKY, ACTOR:
- I played a role when I needed only a red shirt. Here the character is an abandoned man. I feel pity for him. This is one of the strongest roles because it is necessary to dig deep inside, understand and fall in love.
The tour of the Kostanai Theater has come to an end. The festival’s organizers intend to invite the troupe again to participate in the contest next year.
