“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. Żeromskiego 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.
