On April 15 and 16 at 18:30 the Kazan Youth Theater will host the premiere of the drama "Ivan's Childhood" based on the screenplays of films by Andrei Tarkovsky and the story "Ivan" by Vladimir Bogomolov. The production was directed by Anton Fedorov, a guest director of the Gogol Center, Teatra.doc, Moscow Modern Art Theater, and a nominee for the Golden Mask national theater award.
According to Anton Fedorov, the performance will become “an attempt to quietly remember”, because loud memory is enough anyway. The performance team will try to feel and remember what they know only from the stories of veterans and pictures. “This is our honest attempt to get in touch with this,” says Fedorov. The production will tell about the state of war in which the heroes are.
People's artists of the Republic of Tatarstan Mikhail Merkushin, Sergey Moseiko, Honored Artist of the Republic of Tatarstan Alexey Zilber, artists Niyaz Zinnatullin, Alexander Yandaev, Polina Malykh, Ilnur Garifullin, Kamil Gataullin, Maria Mukhortova, Valery Antonov are involved in the performance.
