The young cha­rac­ters of “The sea of Tre­es” are ab­le to chan­ge ap­pe­aran­ces: 14-year old Lo­ra-Lol­ly can turn in­to a wi­se chi­ef of In­di­ans; An­ton can be­come a gu­est from the Me­di­eval Fran­ce, and 12-year-old Lars can be­come a true pi­rate. Wit­hin this be­auti­ful and fu­ri­ous world, the­re is a prog­ram cal­led “The first child in spa­ce”, whe­re cow­bo­ys com­pe­te with In­di­ans on a bac­ky­ard, and one co­uld me­et a zom­bie on the way from scho­ol. The des­pe­rate, jo­yful, end­less ga­me cap­ti­vates the he­ro­es as well as the po­ten­ti­al audi­en­ce, mo­dern bo­ys and girls. Ly­uba Striz­hak wro­te “The sea of Tre­es” spe­ci­al­ly for Go­gol Cen­ter in 2014, when the the­at­re of­fe­red the pla­yw­rights, who par­ti­cipa­ted in the #fo­urp­la­ys pro­ject, to wri­te the­ir dre­am play. This par­ti­cular dre­am is abo­ut child­ho­od that do­es not the end. The pro­duc­ti­on will be sta­ged by Phi­lip Av­de­yev. His de­but work was last year’s “Iolan­ta”, cre­ated on the Go­gol cen­ter Small Sta­ge in col­la­bora­ti­on with Ale­xan­der Gorc­hi­lin and Igor Bych­kov. “The sea of Tre­es” is Av­de­yev’s first in­de­pen­dent work as sta­ge di­rec­tor.
“Af­ter all this, the Mo­on is the on­ly way for me to go. – Let’s not lo­se ti­me then! Alt­ho­ugh, why not, let’s lo­se a litt­le. Now let’s get go­ing. It’s just that the­se grown-up li­nes …“not lo­se ti­me” … What do­es it me­an? As if so­me­one ever ma­naged to find ti­me. – If you find ti­me for so­met­hing, you de­fini­tely lo­se ti­me for so­met­hing el­se. It’s the law of spa­ti­al thin­king. – I want to bre­ak the law”.
