Directed by Eric Lacascade (b. 1959), famous actor and director, who has headed the Centre Dramatique National de Normandie for more than ten years; in the world of theater the director is famous for his powerful adaptations and stagings of classical and modern dramatic texts, characterized by extraordinary emotionality and expression. Lacascade pays very much attention to research and lab work, in which he includes the actors, therefore his performances always become special theatrical events in France and take part in the most famous international festivals.

Lacascade calls the play “Uncle Vanya” (1896) Anton Chekhov’s masterpiece (1860-1904). Having delved into the work of the playwright for many years, the director says he hears the play as an invitation. The parable of the situations and the characters’ behavior in “Uncle Vanya” resembles a human journey overcoming various psychological barriers – it is interesting to watch all the characters of the play, because the director has invented a unique “psychological” machine for each one of them. Working with actors with a different baggage of experience, he creates a seamless theatrical community while at the same time allowing the actors to sparkle in their small individual, exciting one-man shows. The viewers, who become part of the action, help to create a new field of meanings of “Uncle Vanya” as the director does not repeat Chekhov’s text, but makes it come off the lips of the characters.
