Russian theatre earns accolades on day- 2 of theatre festival
The Kolkatans got a taste of current genre of Russian theatre on Day 2 of the International Theatre Festival organized by Kalindi Bratyajon. The students of the School of Modern Drama, Moscow and GITIS collaborated to produce 'Freud'.
The play is based on the life and work of the legendary Austrian psychoanalyst and neurologist, Sigmund Freud. It was a drama depicting Freud's concept of the importance of the unconscious mind which generally governs the behavior of a human mind especially on issues of sexuality, illusions, repression etc. The one hour twenty minute non-stop drama, directed by actor-director, Alexander Tcoi, left the audience in awe in terms of the intense acting stuffed with verbose. It again proved that theatre knows no boundary and language is no barrier. Dmitri Kargin as young Freud and Natalia Savotina as his patient mesmerized the packed auditorium with their mind-blowing performances. The day ended with the felicitation of one of the most promising inter-disciplinary artistes of Kolkata, Sujoy Prosad Chatterjee.
