To me this play of Ivan Vyrypaev is simply full of a good sense of humour, – says the director Oskaras Koršunovas – it’s this existentialist comedy. A Buddhistic thingie, written, undoubtedly by a dramaturg, who had visited the state of Nirvana. As all Buddhistic thingies, it’s full of paradoxes, that if understood, make you fall on the floor laughing.
”Delhi dance” – it’s a cycle of seven novels about a famous dancer and the people who surround her, everyone in the look for the inner peace. Seven stories about love, death, and dance. This is the first time O. Koršunovas is working with the play by I. Vyrypaev. The point of view of the dramaturg towards contemporary theatre is very similar to the laboratorial researcher of O. Koršunovas in his studio. According to the dramaturg, contemporary theatre doesn’t need fake pathos – all it needs is a live conversation. “We’re moving towards a new type of communication, – says the dramaturg, – I’d call it communication between energies and consciousnesses. The spectator comes to a theatre or to a cinema for a dialog, he needs a live feedback. I’m interested in live communication without pathos.
The performance is staged in collaboration with the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre.
