Young director Kris Sharkov has asserted himself as a strong presence in contemporary Bulgarian theatre. “The Wild Duck” is the third play by the modern playwright Henrik Ibsen that he brings on the stage shifting the plot in a contemporary context. A return from abroad reveals hidden secrets that lie behind the apparently happy and successful life of two families in three generations. Gregers Werle insists on pursuing the absolute truth, or the “Summons of the Ideal”. However, this produces disastrous results. What is the place of truth in a society obsessed by the omnipresence of the image? Powerful performance featuring some of the leading actors of the Bulgarian theatre.
