In 2014young actor, Alexander Molochnikov, burst into the theatre world with his production of19:14 (dedicated tothe Centennial ofWW1), that hehimself conceived from beginning toend. Three years later, Molochnikov & Co. present aproduction directly related tothe events ofOctober 1917. The production focuses onthe centennial ofthe Russian Revolution, but not inthe sense ofglorifying it, orasanapotheosis ofit. 25-year-old director works with the myth ofrevolutionary utopia, and with the texts emerged because ofthis myth inRussian and worldwide culture. This isagenerational production, amessage from those born inthe nineties, who studied from textbooks where the Great October has already been dubbed a coup. Both contextually, and formally this production represents those who are sometimes referred toasthe unwhipped generation. The Bright Way. 1917 ishard todepict inone sentence ortoexplain using arigid definition. One has towatch it, and watch asadvised bythe philosopher: donot cry, donot laugh, donot hate, but dograsp.
