Поджигатели/The Arsonists

Running Time: 1hr 20min

Produced by The Horseradish Theatre.

«Кто перемен боится
Больше беды,
Что сделать может
Против беды?»

В литературе часто происходит странное — хозяин дома предпочитает семье случайного знакомого, люди превращаются в носорогов, живой человек получает похоронный венок… А то и вовсе в город заглядывает дьявол со свитой.
Все описанные выше сюжеты имеют что-то общее с «Поджигателями».

Это история о мирных людях, которые живут обычной жизнью и лишь изредка возмущаются новостями — читая газету или выпивая с приятелями в баре. А с наступлением ночи где-то в городе загорается очередной дом. Но если быть гостеприимным и острожным, то это всегда будет чужой дом. Ведь так?

Спектакль демонстрируется на русском языке с синхронным аудиопереводом в индивидуальные наушники.

"Who fears change
Invites greater misfortune,
What can one do
Against misfortune?"

In literature, the strange often happens — a homeowner favors a random acquaintance over their own family, people turn into rhinoceroses, a living person receives a funeral wreath... Or even the devil himself with his entourage might visit the city.
All the above stories share something in common with "The Arsonists."

It's a tale of peaceful people, leading ordinary lives, only occasionally disturbed by the news — reading the newspaper or drinking with friends in a bar. And as night falls, another house in the city catches fire. But if one is hospitable and cautious, it will always be someone else's house. Right?

The show is presented in Russian with simultaneous English dubbing into personal headphones.

We’re Grateful to Be Here.

The Firehall Arts Centre is located on the unceded and traditional territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) First Nations where they lived and gathered together for thousands of years. Acknowledging their connections to these lands is a significant part of what the Firehall considers when choosing the productions and presentations we undertake and how that work shapes and impacts those around us. We ask our community to reflect on what being present here means to you and those around you.
