“Life as a Rage” explores the depths of good and evil using different characters from Dostoevsky’s novels. The performance is an attempt at dissection of the human personality in times of extreme emotional and mental states.

We fall into the depths of contempt and prurience while trying to achieve the most beautiful and noble goals. The man in Dostoevsky’s world is tangled in love and hate, in sin and redemption, in faith and disbelief. Tangled just as if he was trapped in the merciless web of life.

“Life as a Rage” is a labyrinth where we lose our souls while searching for ourselves.”

Veselka Kuncheva
