CHILDREN OF THE SUN, Red Torch Theatre, Novosibirsk
Written during the abortive Russian Revolution of 1905, Maxim Gorky's brilliant darkly comic "Children of the Sun" depicts the new middle-class, foolish perhaps but likeable, as they
flounder, philosophize, and yearn for meaning, all while being totally blind to their impending annihilation. Multi-award-winning director Timofey Kulyabin's (Three Sisters, Onegin)
modernized production, set in 1999 at Stanford University, focuses on the interplay between the characters, the relationships formed and broken, sparring over culture and the cosmos, barely sensing that their own privileged world is in jeopardy. Directed for the screen by Kulyabin and filmed from his Red Torch Theatre in Novosibirsk, Russia.
Presented in Russian with English subtitles.

In Russian

Театр «Красный факел» (Новосибирск, Россия)

В год 150-летия со дня рождения «Буревестника революции» Тимофей Кулябин поставил совсем неюбилейного (а кто бы сомневался?) Горького. Убрав из написанной в 1905 году пьесы «Дети солнца» социальную составляющую и тему враждебного неприятия народом интеллигенции, режиссер сфокусировался на взаимоотношениях главных действующих лиц, то есть интеллигентов...
