Don Juan

2010-2011 Dimitria, Theatre Stage "Open Borders", National Theatre “Ivan Vazov” – Sofia
Don Juan - Molière
Opening: Vassiliko Theatre, 06/10/2010

Moliere’s Don Juan is the most interesting, the most profound, the most philosophical and the most pure of all other interpretations of the myth Don Juan... I nurture no curiosity for the lover, the notorious seducer in this play, the dream of every woman, the adventurer. This is only the prelude, the adornment, the icing on a content much more interesting and profound. It is all about a person who is the embodiment of freedom. A person with no dependency of any kind – family, religious or social. This is emanation of the free man. In the twenty-first century this character acquires a different painfulness. My interest in Don Juan is for his true possession of liberty. The issue here is the question we were asking about ten years ago – what does a man do with his freedom when he already has it. When a man is awakened to the consciousness of his total freedom, he understands he has no one to share it with. Freedom is just like fame; both are very dependent on the society we live in.
