On January 17, 18, 19 at 20:00 Iliauni Theatre will open its tenth season with a premiere.
Fairy tale for adults when they were children, this is how Kakhaber Shartava characterises the performance “Teh Chest of Mysteries” that he wrote and directed. “After a very successful “Snow Queen”, that premiered by the end of 2018 we approached this new project with care and responsibility”, he says. The play as the custom dictates is full of adventures, surprises and unexpected twists.
Once upon a time in their bedroom at the countryside Thebé and Mathé found the Chest of Mysteries containing the very essence bringing happiness and prosperity to humankind. But the Chest is locked and the keys are long lost. You have to find the keys, says the Fairy from the Space, and Thebé and Mathé are transported to other spaces and dimensions where love speaks, Tangerine Tree sings, there is a discount for entry into the City of Smiles and the Fairy land reminds us one very familiar country that needs the keys to the Chest of Mysteries very much.
The story equally interesting for children and their parents, is told by director Kakhaber Shartava together with Set and Costumes Designer Nutsa Chkonia, Choreographer Natia Bunturi and Georgian actors together with the students of Ilia State University.
