The Seagull 73458 is a mysteriously elaborated performance that grips and immerses the audience in varieties of life on the very lakeside where the characters love, create, write, and die. Each spectator sees something that concerns only him and is not understandable to the others. This is a play about people’s disappointed hopes, unmoulded fates and incapacities to refocus their lives. Here everyone is in love with a wrong lover.
The main thing in the play is Chekhov’s text, and Dainius Kazlauskas, a stage director, is similar to a wind that can only animate the leaves.
According to the director’s concept, the production is mainly focused on “the colorless and lifeless world of Konstantin Treplyov’s memories of his real life until he shot himself. These memories and his crime against himself confine Konstantin in captivity forever, forcing him to relive his own death in the face of eternity and to endlessly search for answers unfindable in his life.”
Dainius Kazlauskas said: “The audience has an opportunity to view Treplyov’s story from the angle of eternity. In the setting of dateless night, his story either revives to be tinted with warm and lively colors or immerges itself in the cold world of memories again.”
