illusions of love
Fedor Dostoevsky

A story of two young people, got lost in their own dreams and feelings, arises from actors? improvisation and sketches. Masks appear at the stage together with The Dreamer and Nastenka ? as if making their dreams come true, but staying shadowy and imperceptible. Due the invisible power every performer can try to be both the Dreamer or Nastenka, or Masks. Duality, illusion, anxiety and touching features of the human consciousness, common to F.M. Dostoevsky?s oeuvre, is filled with light and love. The young people, who became viewers of ?White Nights? will see their own age mates, who are also moved by the same problems of the first ironic and sentimental, serious and sad relationships between a man and a woman, between a dream and a reality. In a blink, at one point there disappears the line, which borders the epochs, and the poetical text of XX century gains acute, modern, living tone, refilled with feelings of the youth.
