The Idiots

Perfomance, 18+ 2:40, No intermissions
Ki­rill Se­reb­renni­kov’s pro­duc­ti­on «The Idi­ots» ba­sed on Lars von Tri­er’s film of the sa­me na­me is a part of Go­gol Cen­ter’s tri­logy ba­sed on the fa­mo­us Euro­pe­an films. Se­reb­renni­kov’s play ta­kes pla­ce in mo­dern-day Mos­cow. The aut­hors did not trans­fer the plot word for word. Anot­her men­ta­lity, at­ti­tude to­ward the «Ot­her», po­liti­cal and so­ci­al con­text all ca­used a ret­hinking of the ori­ginal sto­ry.
The pre­mi­ere of the first ver­si­on has oc­curred on 24 may 2013. The se­cond ver­si­on’s pre­mi­ere has oc­curred on 7 Sep­tember 2018. 
Two years la­ter the per­forman­ce is co­ming back to the Go­gol Cen­ter’s sta­ge. New ti­me pe­ri­od. New cir­cums­tan­ces. New edi­tor. “The Idi­ots” is one of the most po­pular Tri­er’s mo­vi­es. It was ma­de on the ru­les of “Dog­me 95 Ma­nifes­to” which de­ni­es any ci­nema­tic con­di­ti­ona­liti­es. 
In the play the ac­ti­on is ta­ken down to Mos­cow and the Dog­me ma­nifes­to is trans­la­ted to the the­at­ri­cal lan­gu­age. Cha­rac­ters are try­ing to find the­ir own in­ternal “de­mons” thro­ugh the pro­tests, in which bre­aking events and is­su­es of Rus­si­an li­fe of last se­veral years are ref­lected. “Idi­ots” me­et jo­ur­na­lists, bu­siness­men, and or­di­nary pe­op­le from the stre­et crowd, ho­wever, eve­ry­one of them is equ­al­ly shoc­ked by the be­havi­or of the ma­in cha­rac­ters and this be­havi­or of­ten ca­uses to­ugh re­ac­ti­on.
