Oskaras Koršunovas



ca. 75 min

The theme of Maxim Gorki’s play “Nachtasyl” (“The Lower Depths”) still feels 
relevant in our times: lost souls – written off by society, dreaming of a better life – 
contemplate life’s existential questions. In Koršunovas’ production a long table 
covered in a white cloth and several bottles of vodka fuel the explosive questions 
about the value of human life, the sincerely told stories of their own existences and the expression of their own hopes and desires. Director Oskaras Koršunovas on his 
production: “This is our first theatrical performance in which we don’t concentrate on 
the result, but seek to test and discover ourselves, so that the actors not only create 
their characters, but also retain the reality and remain themselves.”


Production: Oskaras Koršunovas/Vilnius City Theatre.

The guest performance is funded by the Lithuanian Ministry of Culture.

Part of NORDWIND: Platform and Festival for the Arts from the Nordic and Baltic Countries.
