One of the features of Vladislav Nastavshev’s creative style is the integrity of the idea and the organic fusion of all the elements of the show’s design, as the director often also works as a set designer and composer. But Vladislav Nastavshev’s talent has another side: he performs his own songs, including songs from some of the theatre shows.
«The work on I. Buņin’s «Dark Alleys» has stopped. But internally it continues anyway. Among other things, I have composed several songs using the words of Ivan Bunin. Often the songs become kind of emotional sketches for my future performances. Such as watercolor sketches. Several of these songs will be performed during the online concert. You will also hear songs with poetry written recently by Sergei Uhanov. My friend Semyon Hanin, the great poet of Riga, agreed that the concert will also feature several songs with his poetry. I will also sing songs from the last performance I have managed to stage — «Five Songs by Memory» by Mikhail Chekhov’s Riga Russian Theater (with poetry by «Orbita» poet Sergei Timofeyev, Semyon Hanin, Arturs Punte and Vladimir Svetlov). And, of course, let’s remember Mikhail Kuzmin and Federico Garcia Lorca. »
