The comedy of Moliere is staged by Elmar Senkov - one of the most popular young directors in Latvia. He is already familiar to our audience from the play “Demons”. "Misanthrope" was not based on the well-known translation of 1957, but on the new text by Dmitry Bykov, written specifically for the play. Now the reality of Moliere is much more closely linked to our life. Time of action - the era of social networks and free information.
“We are trying to find images that live today. Who is modern Altsest, and who is Selimena. A new virtual environment has been formed, a new world in which we make our world, our image, we broadcast our ideas about how to live beautifully. And it is clear that everyone here can see himself on the stage.
That’s interesting: to look from the outside, how we do advertising of ourselves. But then the question arises: where is the real one among them? ”
