Shopping and Fucking

The universal character of Shopping and Fucking is manifested on the sociological and political level. The director reveals the most shameful qualities of the modern world, both in social and personal life everything is for sale, even a moral identity becomes a market commodity. The protagonists are young people inclined to sell their only wealth, their youth and they do it in order to survive. Ravenhill’s play is cruel, but at the same time extremely human. It is human as it provokes the audience to evaluate immoral and condemnable acts by going back to their origins.
Marius von Mayenburg

Face of Fire

Korsunovas feeds on drastic situations, without being scared to touch ‘the rough surface of life’; aggression, incest, crime are the sources of his inspiration.
Olga and Kurt, the protagonists of Mayenburg’s play move between the extremes; travelling from the bottom to the top, and from the top to the bottom. Their path leads to the highest points of culmination, on the stage it is the top of the cupboard, towering over the stage like an antic column. Kurt burns himself there – this act transcends the boundaries of an everyday drama and becomes a kind of metaphor. This metaphor is also contained in the smell of petrol in the air. Korsunovas goes beyond conventional theatre, trying to posses a new mean of expression and build the theatre reality with more than two senses, adding a sense of smell.
