About Performance:
Great playwrights create their own theatres and talk to us with eternal themes. Anton Chekhov’s “The Seagull” is a masterpiece of the so called “New Drama” which is important  in all times -  it is sarcastic, highly dramatic, ironic, full of symbolism, modernist and at the same time apocalyptic as well -  so accurately responding  to our prostrate pandemic life.  
There are so many psychological layers in the play, so many character lines or destinies intersect that it implies new directorial reading always , new vision and  form , which the Artistic Director Andro Enukidze and the actors  are already offering to spectators.
