Few monologues from the eponymous book by Svetlana Alexievich, which tells the story of a person's life after the Soviet Union collapse.

Premiere – January 28th, 2015

«We’re paying our respects to the Soviet era. Cutting ties with our old life. I’m trying to honestly hear out all the participants of the socialist drama…
The Soviet civilization… I’m rushing to make impressions of its traces, its familiar faces. I don’t ask people about socialism, I want to know about love, jealousy, childhood, old age. Music, dances, hairdos. The myriad sundry details of a vanished way of life. It never ceases to amaze me how interesting everyday life really is. There are an endless number of human truths. I am fascinated by people».
