On April 29, theater critic Anna Konstantinova will talk about the Lithuanian Puppet Theater

On April 29, the next lecture of the project “BTK PRO ...” awaits viewers and guests of BTK. This evening, theater expert and theater critic Anna Konstantinova will give a lecture on the Lithuanian puppet theater and the famous director Vitalijus Mazuras, the “Lithuanian Picasso”, who influenced a whole generation of puppet directors.

Vitaliyus Mazuras says that he makes “theater out of nothing” or “out of one’s own belly” - and this is easy to associate with the Hindu myth of a deity, in each breath of which new worlds are born. Today we can safely say that it was Mazuraz’s reform ideas that, several decades ago, marked the beginning of the current variety of the Lithuanian puppet theater: cozy and sharp, epic and poetic ...
Since then, more than a hundred performances of Mazuras have appeared on puppet scenes from different countries. A great many of his colleagues in the doll shop (in Lithuania and abroad) at least recognize his influence, and at most - consider themselves his students.Among them are: Jurate Januskaviciute, Nijole Indrūnaite, Saule Degutiite, Gintara Radvilavičiut, Rimas Drežis, Linas Zube and others. All of them are very different, and each of them at one time received a “graft of creative freedom”, coming into contact with the work of Mazuras.
Anna Konstantinova - Candidate of Art Criticism, theater critic, theatrical critic, member of UNIMA. Cooperates with festivals of synthetic theaters and puppet theaters in Russia, Belarus, Lithuania, Poland. Member of the Expert Council of the Highest Theatrical Award of St. Petersburg "Golden Lot Sofit".
