Anachronistic Concert

Anachronistic Concert

Moscow Art Theatre School (MHAT)

Director: Viktor Ryzhakov

in Russian with Hungarian translation

1 hours 50 minutes, without breaks.

This production by the acting class of Viktor Ryzhakov, the Stanislavsky Prize-winning Russian director and theatre pedagogue, touches movingly on a generation that is vanishing, the fading world of the recent past, ever more imbued with nostalgia, and the joys and sorrows of our parents and grandparents. It is made all the more captivating by the inclusion of music, dance, excerpts from film, and monologues. Ryzhakov’s students of the dramatic arts have used the tools of the “verbatim” theatre to conjure the mood of an era which for them is gradually little more than a period of history, using monologues and recollections of the elderly and experimenting, in our era of transition, with feelings and ideas that mean the same thing for people of today – the joy and love of life.
