The Golden Ass
The premiere took place in 3 May 2016.
The public showings of Boris Yukhananov’s “new processual” project is devoted to work interpreting Apuleius’ novel Metamorphosis or The Golden Ass.
The project is conducted in a manner that is completely new for Russian theatre: the genre of the open-circuited workspace.
The project is so constructed that it will undergo constant change and development. Each of the five days of The Golden Ass consists of daytime showings of modules (2 to 6 p.m.). Modules are independent scenes created by project participants and they may be shown in fragments or interrupted by Boris Yukhananov, who publicly discusses them on the spot.
