“I won't be working with my play in absentia. After all, it is impossible to work with this text by the telephone, but I'll try to guide you;
I wrote down all the instructions for the future director in the text of the play, in remarks. He must read them attentively. And I would like to mention, that it is a buffoonary, grotesque, so the main message of the play – is to amuse.
It must be funny from the very beginning till the end.I truly believe, that such kind of play could be impressive.
I believe in us! I'm glad of not being alone any more, your, Oleg”»
The theatrical performance based on the play by Oleg Sentsov "Numbers" is a story about a society that has fallen into the trap of a dictatorial regime. Personality is so lost, that people are even devoid of names - only serial numbers. This is very similar to what happens to a person in prison, is it? Sometimes a whole country can be jailed in mental cages. Oleg Sentsov wrote this play long before his imprisonment in Russia. To a certain extent, this work proved to be a prophecy about the fate of the artist. But the true artist will always find a way to stay free off the grates. This is how Sentsov gave his directorial instructions and remarks to the play and permission to stage it. .
