The Seagull

«The Seagull» which apparently tells the story a boy, whose whole series of writers’ and love stories lead to suicide. The play is actually a comedy about the passing of time, youth, and idealism, which are affected by age and experience. It is not shown directly as in Chekhov play is. The behaviour of the characters is flexible and indeterminate. The scenes depicted from the life of the country make the atmosphere a bit nostalgic. Keeping the atmosphere of Chekhov’s world, the director plays with the feelings of the audience, with their fantasies, and directs the audience to Shakespeare and Nekrošius. This is a demonstration of young artists with a very different look for life, an older generation who guard their old standpoints, wonderful love, the search for life, also in art. All is simplicity and swiftness, the elusive but proper ozone for the tragicomic realm that “The Seagull” inhabits. The play’s theatrical game of hide-and-seek progresses from realism to a heightened, almost mystical, lyricism. Both in the rhythms of his scenes and in the rhythms of his language, Chekhov aspires to trap the unspoken and the unutterable.  Fireworks, fire and video projections complete the spectacle of the performance.
