“Mauser” will open a series of video screenings of the Alexandrinsky theatre on the main and new scenes when the actors have to play to an empty house. In Alexandrinsky Theodoros Terzopoulos to this unique event raised three times: in 2006 – “Oedipus the king” by Sophocles, in 2014 – “End game” Beckett and in 2017 – the play “Mother Courage and her children” by Brecht. “Theodoros Terzopoulos always works with classic texts, and is the best specialist in Europe for Greek tragedy, – said the artistic Director of the Alexandrinsky theater Valery Fokin. It is very important that it is relying on a tragic meaning never goes beyond the meaning of literary, always explores the tragic start acting in nature. For me, the longer it Terzopoulos is a Director, an artist that is interesting and significant, especially those that profess a sensual theatre. The theater, which is not hiding behind words, which can hardly be called literary, narrative theatre. Terzopoulos involved in theater, which operaell primarily on the inner material of the actor: at his condition, his emotions. It means not just the emotional excitement of an actor, but a special way of being on stage.”

As reported in the theater, a new performance of Theodoros of Terzopoulos the first full stage version of the play by Heiner müller’s “Mauser” in Russia. Special value added following the premiere of the biographical facts of Terzopoulos: in the 1970s, years Director five years trained at the Berliner ensemble, where his mentor was the Heiner Muller.
