Burjesta Theatre Workshops – Russian Theatre

Starts Wednesday 11th January, 7pm @ The Casa, Hope Street, Liverpool
[part of Burjesta Theatre’s ‘Russian Season’]

This Wednesday we begin a new series of workshops looking at the work of some of the great Russian dramatists: Gogol, Ostrovksy, Tolstoy, Chekhov, Gorky and seminal works such as ‘The Government Inspector’ and ‘The Cherry Orchard’.

We begin this week by taking Gogol’s farce ‘The Government Inspector’ as our starting point. Each session is a stand-alone session and costs £3/£2. Workshops are open to all from total beginner to accomplished actor.

Russian Season – Began in November of last year with an in-house adaptation of Fyodor Dostoevsky’s classic novel ‘Crime and Punishment’ we’ll be looking throughout 2017 at the great playwrights and theatre practitioners of Russian theatre as well as the diversion of a ‘cine club’ looking at classic Russian films such as ‘Battleship Potemkin’.

We’ll be culminating the season in October with an epic theatre presentation of the events surrounding the Russian Revolution to commemorate its hundredth anniversary.
