Written by Maksym Kurochkin
It’s stating the obvious that war is evil–it’s a stupid idea. And we do not want do it. What war makes of people we know, of eyewitnesses; Internet constantly throws us shocking facts; TV obsessively says what his masters need. The forensic impact of war makes people hide deeply in the “house” or “box,” battening down the windows–but we can not so fail! War seeps into our dreams and corrodes the soul. Medea is an attempt to reflect our personal experience and perception of time in which we are living.
The performance was created by playing off a classic and a new Ukrainian drama by Maksym Kurochkin, Fighter Class “Medea.” The text, written by Kurochkin more than 20 years ago is awfully similar to our present, speaks about “here-and-now,” and warns of what can be expected tomorrow. Medea is a theatrical experience that you need to face to find new confidence, to become even a little bit better.
Den Gumenniy, art-director of PostPlayTheatre: “Authors of this performance can without arrogance and pathos speak about eternal separation and infinite war. This anti-war action is easy to imagine, for example, in the center of East Berlin, and that performance was made possible in Kiev – my personal great happiness. Like any good show, “Medea” is as funny and frightening as any important play – it does not let go for a long time”.
