Meditation over despair, or a fairytale with your ending / 3 hours / 18+
This is a story about a prostitute and her many clients. This is a story about how exactly the old professors and the «portfolio investors» are distinguished by their sexual desires and perversity. Oh,
wait. This is rather a story about a werewolf girl Fox and her attempts to find an anchor in the human world. Or not even that. This story is about the search for answers to many questions: what is valuable in this world and what is not, what is the nature of beauty and is it worth devoting whole life to the pursuit of truth, unless the truth is attainable, and millions of people, having put their lives on pursuit, were left with nothing?
So what is this story about? After all, everyone decides for himself what he sees: a prostitute or a hilosopher, and what he hears: a bunch of nonsense or a deep meaning hidden in it. The Maly Theater performance «Lust» based on V. Pelevin’s novel «The Sacred Book of the Werewolf» is a meditation upon despair, or a fairy tale with your ending, where nobody can predict what exactly you will see and hear.
