Performances of Robert Wilson and Daniele Finzi Pasca will open VI Platonov festival

«Rhinoceros» by Robert Wilson


The art of a famous American director, the star of theatre avant-garde and the most world-renowned master of the visual theatre Robert Wilson will be presented at Platonov festival with the performance «Rhinoceros», based on Eugene Ionesco’s play. Maestro Wilson has made this production in Romania, the motherland of an outstanding playwriter and one of the founders of the absurdism, at the National Theatre «Marin Sorescu» Craiova.

Created with Robert Wilson’s characteristic style, which means elaborate lighting plot and visual perfectionism in each mise en scene, «Rhinoceros» will become one of the most technically complicated projects of our programme. This production will be shown in Russia for the first time.

«Bianco su Bianco» is a new production of the Compagnia Finzi Pasca, written and directed by a famous Swiss director, choreographer, clown and playwriter Daniele Finzi Pasca.

In this graceful surrealistic performance he remains loyal to his esthetics, working in the genre of the theatrical eccentricity with plenty of witty surprises and circus tricks.

This year our theatre programme steps to a new level. Almost all foreign performances of Platonov festival are to be shown in Russia for the first time.
