"That's It!", a dramatic concert, dedicated to Viktor Tsoi
In the year, when the famous singer and musician, leader of the group "Kino" Viktor Tsoi would have turned 60, Mikhail Chekhov Theater, in collaboration with Hanzas Perons, has staged a musical performance "That's It!", dedicated to the man, who became one of the legends of the 20th century.
Viktor Tsoi's sharp and bright talent flourished during "the break of the era" – in the 1980s. Pronounced anti-war sentiments, a sense of confrontation between an individual and the system in its various manifestations and guises, deeply personal coloring of experiences, bright and powerful lyrics, bold, memorable musical solutions that are a trademark of "Kino" – all of this turned out to be in tune with the times and the spirit of change. Now, the songs by Viktor Tsoi and "Kino", already beloved by many, are regaining some special relevance and, in a sense, a second wind. Once again, they are about us of today.
The production includes twenty songs, performed by the actors. The famous theater director Roman Smirnov, who personally knew Viktor Tsoi, his family and colleagues, also used video materials, provided by artists, associated with Viktor Tsoi and his friends.
