“Twelfth Night” at the iStage Festival in Mariupol

New's thumbnail Under the slogan "MAKE LOVE, NOT WAR!" Symbolically. In the east of the country. At a distance of 1250 km from home. On the eve of the 30th anniversary of Ukraine's Independence. The first performance of our new season was the Shakespeare's comedy "Twelfth Night, or What You Will!" (directed by Oleksii Hnatkovskyi) performed by veterans and volunteers of the ATO/OO under the artistic direction of Rostyslav Derzhypilskyi. Exclusively for the iStage Festival-Laboratory of Contemporary Theater Art, Rostyslav Derzhypilskyi adapted the play for showing in the Art Yard of the Contemporary Art Center "Hotel Continental" in Mariupol. The fire escape turned into a watchtower and the balcony of Countess Olivia - and in general, the whole space resembled either Shakespeare's "Globe" or the courtyard of an English castle of the "Elizabethan era". "We hope that now Mariupol will be associated not only with the war," - said the actors (they are also veterans and volunteers of the Russian-Ukrainian war) after the performance. And we again, as every day, wish us all peace, love and harmony! Glory to Ukraine! Glory to heroes!
