There is the one of the most loud premiere at the main stage of The Mayakovsky Theatre. This play is directed by Nikita Kobelev.
The work of Maxim Gorky has always been controversial. Today, the most difficult for the older generation is to get rid of the previous cargo: old look at Gorky: from the time of "Song of the Stormy Petrel" to the pejorative view of the 90s, when there was a desire to lose Gorky from "the ship of modernity", because he was the founder of the aesthetics of socialist realism, he was "not ours any more".
But Maxim Gorky - is forgotten author of family relations. The focus of the play "The last" is not in social issues, there is no political conflict. The family is the main subject for the director: he research through the prism of the time the eternal theme of fathers and sons, how unresolved problems of parents grew in their children.
The performance artist Mikhail Kramenko created a unique theater space, scenery-transformer, which will evolve throughout the play. Each act has its own configuration of decorations. 4 acts have 4 different spaces. For audiences it`s prepares a lot of surprises, one of which will be the image by Anatoliy Lobotskiy (the head of the family) who is following the director's decision of capable of much, and who can move even the wall.
The premiere took place on April 9, 2015.
The performance lasts 2 hours 30 minutes.
