About Performance:
The world that declares freedom but never gives the possibility to breath.  We come to the world with given conditions  -  we follow the rules but seek for freedom.
“…A footman opened the carriage door and out she fluttered, just like a little bird …”
Love -  is it a freedom ?
How it is possible to survive in a huge world with lots of information, events, news, with hierarchy for a person like Poprichin. What is the way to obtain personal freedom? Can we accept the conditions, limits and at the same time go strongly personal way ?
Are the differences accepted really? 
Is there any parallel freedom? Maybe it is ....

“…Direktor Levan Tsuladze verwandelte das Haus mit drei Spielstätten in den eigentlichen Kulturraum der Hauptstadt. Seine Inszenierung von Gogols "Tagebuch eines Wahnsinnigen" in Koproduktion mit der Emilia Romagna Teatro Fondatione (Modena) verführte das georgische Publikum mit italienischem Theateresprit auf einer Studiobühne, die äußerst geschickt mit Licht, Technik und Sound Tiefe und Geschwindigkeit vorgaukelte.“

"...That gives the feeling that even there was ever another stage of existence. Blending notes commedia dell'arte scenes of film noir, Tsuladze's performance  is the best modern adaptation of  a play by Gogol."
