The new production Love As Militarism after the play by Russian playwright Petr Gladilin will soon be premiered in the Janka Kupała National Theatre. The production is directed by Dzmitryj Ciško. The premiere will be held on May 30 and 31.



The production will be performed at the Chamber stage, the new theatre venue that was open this season and entrusted to young theatre directors, students of the Belarusian State Academy of Arts tutored by Mikałaj Pinihin.

In December 2015 Antigone by Jean Anouilh, directed by Mikałaj Kapulcevič, was staged there; in March 2016 Šabany were directed by Alena Hanum after the same-titled novel by Alhierd Bacharevič; now Dzmitryj Ciško selected Love As Militarism, written by Petr Gladilin first as a script and re-written as a play at the request of Oleg Tabakov, as his diploma production.

Love As Militarism is a story of turbulent relationships between three generations of a family: grandmother fights with her husband, their daughters fight theirs, and their granddaughter fights with her boyfriend.

The play was translated by Maryna Kazłoŭskaja. Sets and costumes were created by Lidzija Małašanka, and Kryścina Pieržukova. Music was written by Pavieł Zacharanka. Art director of the production is Mikałaj Pinihin.
