Student Theater (Armenia)

Duration: 85 min

This is a story of a great man who has turned into a blind weapon in the hands of a petty intrigue, a big warrior who has lost a war to small passions. The action takes place in the military environment, where valor often goes side by side with vulgarity and ignorance, where love neighbors lust, where it is much easier to be a hero in the face of death on the battlefield than in the dead air of the dull barracks. And the key actor on the stage is the simple soldier, whose attitude to the situation is the mainspring of the story and the true cause of the tragedy. Thus a person who has given birth to an idea in a hard but fair fight can easily choke it in the mud of an idle talk.

Yerevan International Shakespeare Theatre Festival

I want to congratulate all of us with the start of Yerevan 14th Shakespeare International Theater festival. This year we highlight the importance of students' participation. All our efforts would be in vain, if it was not for opening new stages and spaces for the youth.
We choose the opening location to be the Student Theater, since we all started our first steps there. I believe that the new "FEST OUT" program will be efficient and the audience will experience the positive feelings watching the outstanding performances.
Wish us all a very theatrically productive week!
