PAGANS


PAGANS

Anna Yablonskaya died at the peak of her career, having just written her best, most incisive text the play Pagans. This play is a brutal drama about the crisis of faith in contemporary culture, about our confusion around questions of belief and the extremes to which we will go in search of individual salvation. In one familys moment of extreme destruction and dysfunction, the protagonists religious mother-in-law, suddenly returns after wandering between monasteries. The first act is like a statement of faith, the second act its denial. In the end there is only the confusion, chaos, and silence that is characteristic of the state of faith in contemporary Russian culture. The topic is taboo. Its not often spoken about in the theatre. Yablonskaya conducts an honest and convincing attempt to face this impasse of a question: to believe or not to believe, and in what? As a playwright she searches, without taking a side. She concerns herself with the fragility of faith that rests only on belief in miracles without any intellectual confirmation.

Pavel Rudnev


This production was produced over the course of one year by the Teatr.doc collective led by Lera Surkov (Alkonovells)
