Teatrul Mic (Small Theatre)

One’s destiny is blood-sealed. Already a Karamazov carries a broken wing, a hidden demon in his soul, one that does not allow a human to become a Human.



The five Karamazovs, three legitimate sons (Ivan, Dmitri and Alyosha), a paria (Smerdyakov) and the father (Fyodor), a seducing jester, keep an eye on each other. Eaten by doubt, they seek the Truth, even when their soul is too sullied to welcome it.

Death prowls, guilt spawns monsters, and suffering, crushed and captive between the moving walls of the constantly shape shifting stage, absolves and brings in the Light.
