What makes the August performances sharply different is relocation of the act from a swimming pool – the original spot chosen by the author – into the space of traditional theatre, and adapting it to the stage.

В Лондоне прошли спектакли, посвященные Иосифу Бродскому

Premier shows of the "Brodsky station" play, directed by Konstantin Kamensky, were presented in July 2016.

The play is based on a piece written by the director, inspired by works of Harold Pinter and Joseph Brodsky. This production is a perpetual dialogue of a man with his creator, a reflection about the purpose and the meaning of life.

The "Brodsky station" production exists in two styles: in a swimming pool and on stage, as the director Kamensky says "water had to be in a play, as I saw it from the very beginning of creating the spectacle". Hence the play was moved into a pool. However the on stage version also exists by bringing the personalities at the front. Read more »
