The new life of «Leningradka»
Laureate of the Russian National theatre award «Golden Mask».
Dedicated to the 70th anniversary of the great Victory.
The Great Patriotic War. Blockade of Leningrad. Little girl Valya suffers the most terrible days of her life.
The spectator steps into the world of fantasy and reality – the world of a child. Appeared from imagination - the images are full of warmth, kindness and immortality – a dream or reality. Thanks to puppets synthesis, military personnel chronicles, animation and cinema these images materialize into a story.
The house is destroyed. Wardrobe – is the only refuge in a bombed – out house. But when those who love and protect you are next to you, even only in your illusions and imagination, your defender - brownie, which drives away all your fears – you’ll survive and continue living with a great gratitude to those who held out and built a house without war. House without war, piece without war, all the children must have a childhood and right to live in piece – the main author’s idea of the performance.
