“Catherine the Great” - subversive show from Kielce
April 4, 2014
“Catherine the Great”, a play written by Jolanta Janiczak
and directed by Wiktor Rubin, will be shown as part of the 34th Warsaw Theater Meetings
The spectacle is performed by S. ¯eromskiego Theater from Kielce.
"A challenge thrown into a man’s world", "subversive show", "history as a porn tale" – this is how critics described Jolanta Janiczak and Wiktor Rubin’s play after its premiere. This shamelessly poetic and innocently forcible performance is by no means a historical story about a 15-year-old Prussian princess born in Szczecin, Zofia Anhalt-Zerbst, who became the Empress of Russia and amateur of all men. Instead, creators show a story concerning body, instincts, insignificant motives, lack of ideals, ambition and sadness. They use forcible language reaching the very core of gender and cultural stereotypes.
