Bertolt Brecht

Premiere – September 8, 2016

The performance is based on the one-act play A Respectable Wedding by Bertolt Brecht, written in 1918, 100 years ago. Oskaras Koršunovas carries it to today’s Lithuania. With his deep dive into the text, the director reveals the lying, hypocritical morality and the decay of traditions, devaluation of sacred rituals which are held today by inertia, without sharing the idea behind them. The story of the newlyweds from Lithuanian province seems familiar since in this reflection we observe no one but ourselves.

OKT / Vilnius City Theatre

n 1998 Oskaras Koršunovas founded an independent theatre, called Oskaras Koršunovas Theatre, shortened to just OKT. Koršunovas has built a solid repertoire, which encompasses both contemporary drama and classic stagings. Contemporary theatre must reflect the present day and sometimes even be ahead of the time, predict the future and act as a warning.
Theatre was awarded the most prestigious of prizes in 2006 – the Europe Theatre Prize for New Realities. In 2009, Oskaras Koršunovas was given the honourable title of the Chevalier of the French order of Literature and Arts. Tours in international festivals encompass the United States, South Korea, Australia, Argentina, and the territory in between.

Oskaras Koršunovas

Oskaras Koršunovas was born on March 6, 1969, in Vilnius. In 1993 he graduated from Lithuania Academy of Music with a Master’s degree in Theatre Directing. Already at that time the young director stood out for his unusual theatrical language.

In 1998, the director, together with a few like-minded fellows, founded an independent theatre, called Oskaras Koršunovas Theatre, shortened to just OKT. Koršunovas has built a solid repertoire, which encompasses both contemporary drama and classic stagings. The director’s credo to stage classics as contemporary plays, recognizing what is relevant to the present time, and contemporary plays – as the classics, conveying what is universal and timeless, became paradigmatic in that creative period.
