Sex, power, love, alienation and violence. World premiere of a new adaptation of Lermontov’s classic novel. A thrilling Russian dissection of the cruel and complicated games played between the sexes, laying intimate thoughts unflinchingly bare, and featuring the ultimate Byronic hero, a reckless, melancholic romantic. A uniquely immersive experience, blurring the line between spectators and performers, and between the present day and the 19th century. Created by a team of artists from the UK, Russia and Belarus, crossing social and political divides.
