About event


The unexpected, the unexpected! Ancient classic satire and humor - translated into the present.

How do the descendants of the one who really great Ivan Kotlyarevsky wrote in his immortal masterpiece aphoristically in our present life: “Aeneas was a motor boy and a guy, even where a Cossack ...” Who and what do they meet in the twenty-first century on the territory nenki - Ukraine? And, as a rule, certainly in the spirit of the classical epic - the question of which Gods rule the world? Yes, yes, it is our world in which we live with you - with "advanced" children and grandchildren, with plans, as they say, "from airport to airport", with the usual Facebook Internet and, unfortunately, often far from parliamentary expressions on the streets, in shops, in transport and even in the family ...

Every day, and not at any moment, they get involved with this, the playwright Vitaly Chensky rethought what happened to the legendary Aeneas. One of the most popular nowadays domestic directors Maksim Golenko staged "Aeneid-XXI" based on V. Chpensky's play.

This joint project of the Odessa Academic Ukrainian Music and Drama Theater named after Vasilko and the Kiev "Wild Theater" is presented on our stage again unexpectedly and unpredictably - in the genre of epic travesty.

Therefore, we have already noted what this performance is about. But we will not tell how it is perceived: after all, it is much better to see everything with our own eyes. Just remember that, taking into account some of the above details and circumstances, the theater addresses its new premiere exclusively to an adult audience.
