On November 6 there will be a world premiere in Moscow of the theater performance ‘Norma’ with music by Alexey Retinsky. It is based on the first novel by Vladimir Sorokin ‘Norma’…
Maxim Didenko, director: ‘This text is like a drill that takes out the metaphysical basis of Russian consciousness. On the one hand, the concept of the norm is static, but at the same time the current one: the norm is constantly changing, time is flowing, life is going on, we are changing and we don’t notice how the norm becomes that it was impossible to imagine some time ago. Russian people sometimes get used to radical and terrifying things, and I want to explore it. This text is like a rebus that I want to solve.’
The production will be a synthesis of music, dance, performance and digital arts.
‘Norma‘ is a joint project of the Theater on Malaya Bronnaya and Brusnikin’s Workshop. The performance will take place on the stage of the Yauza Palace, and will enter the permanent repertoire of the Theater on Malaya Bronnaya.
