When: 12 and 13 October 2019, 20:00 – 22:00
Where: Plovdiv, Kapana at 4 Magura Str, in front of Arsenal of Art Gallery
This is the story of "The Good Person from Szechuan" inspired by the myth of Sodom and Gomorrah and the play of Bertolt Brecht, re-created by three groups of actors - from the State Puppet Theatre in Plovdiv, students from NATFA Sofia and students from the Plovdiv schools.
The topic of the performance is "How to be good" - an important topic, presented in entertaining way - the show, followed by a discussion with the young people - to think about: how to change the world - by starting with yourself. There is part for everyone, who want to participate. On improvisational principle, the people from the audience can get involved in some scences – to walk on street, to work in factory, to dance, because in our plot there is a wedding. For the young people it will be easier to get to the themes, because of the music, light and theatre collaboration. Through the contrast method, the audience can see a bad example and think about the responsibility to create the society we want to be.
The performance will be preceded by a general rehearsal on 11 October, 6pm – 8 pm, at the same place – 4 Magura Str, in front of Arsenal of Art Gallery in Plovdiv.
