Az Örkény Színház Facebook oldalán ingyen nézhető a litvániai Kaunasi Nemzeti Színház előadása

A Kaunasi Nemzeti Színház előadásában látható Gettó Joshua Sobol izraeli drámaíró munkásságának legtöbb vitát kiváltó darabja, amely a vilnai (vilniusi) gettószínház történelmi tényeken alapuló történetét dolgozza fel. A szöveg arra a kérdésre keresi a választ, hogy mire képes a művészet a legembertelenebb körülmények között, mi az ára a belső szabadság megőrzésének és lehetséges-e tisztán túlélni egy irracionálisan kegyetlen korban. Gintaras Varnas rendezése Sobol eredeti darabját további rétegekkel bővítve a litván nép felelősségéről is nyíltan beszél, az elhallgatás helyett a megtisztító szembenézés alternatíváját felkínálva.
 
Az előadás egyszeri alkalommal, január 28-án 19:00 órától ingyenesen látható az Örkény Színház Facebook oldalán litván nyelven, angol felirattal.

Each season about 350 events take place in the theatre inviting more than 60 000 spectators. During a season theatre audience enjoys 6 to 7 premieres, an educational festival „Stage Diving” as well as international festivals, cooperations and tours.

The National Kaunas Drama Theatre is a repertory theatre offering a variety of productions ranging from Western and National classical plays to contemporary, postdramatic and physical theatre productions for all social groups of national and international audiences.

Ghetto is a production of a homonymous play by Israeli playwright Joshua Sobol. It is based on historical facts and tells a story of Lithuanian Jews in Vilna Ghetto during Nazi occupation in World War II. The play is focused on the Jewish theatre in the ghetto, incorporating live music and including characters based on historical figures.

The play by Sobol had a number of stage productions including the Haifa Theatre (Haifa), the National Theatre (London), the Freie Volksbühne (Berlin) etc. It has been staged in Lithuania before, in 1990 by Jonas Vaitkus, it was also adapted into film in 2005 by Lithuanian film director Audrius Juzėnas, featuring international cast (and a Hungarian actress Erika Marozsán). The National Kaunas Drama Theatre production of Ghetto was staged by Lithuania’s leading contemporary stage director Gintaras Varnas as a striking experience of the horror of the Holocaust as well as of survival and resistance, a historical narrative recreated through intense action, full-scale visual expression, numerous musical inserts and exclusive performance of the actors of the National Kaunas Drama Theatre. It is also a daring inquiry into the issue of historical quilt related to Lithuanians who collaborated with the Nazi perpetrators of mass murders of Lithuanian Jewish population.
