ST. PETERSBURG. Spectators who are actively interested in the work of modern playwrights have already managed to get acquainted with the play "Libya, 13", the premiere of which was held on the New Stage of "Alexandrinka". A year ago, in the same stage space, the first meeting with this play, written by the Swiss playwright Christina Rinderknecht, took place.
The play was presented in a project dedicated to the new European play, in the form of a reading. The author, who was present at the play’s reading, named the version of her play, which Mikhail Patlasov worked on staging the reading, the best of the works that she had seen before.
In the same year, the play "Libya, 13" was published in the anthology "STEP 11+", combining modern German-language drama addressed to young audiences. The anthology was born thanks to the Goethe Institute, which together with the German Foreign Ministry organized the Year of the German Language in Russia.
Kristina Rinderknecht, a representative of a new generation of playwrights in Europe, touched on in her play a topic that has been relevant at all times - the drama of adolescence. On the Russian stage, plays of such a genre as the one staged in “Alexandrinka” “Libya 13” appear infrequently.
Mikhail Patlasov, combining documentary and game theater in his directorial work, invited the audience to become participants in the play, staged in the form of a reconstruction of the history of growing up. The play turned into a lively dialogue with the audience, touching on topics of concern to them - this is teenage sexuality, and the conflicts inherent in small societies, and the search for oneself.
The theater plans to show the performance in schools of St. Petersburg and theaters of other cities. Already in October this year, teenagers from Pskov, Arkhangelsk, Petrozavodsk and Severodvinsk will get acquainted with the performance “Libya 13”.
