Apocalypse Tomorrow


Six people in one room find our that the world will end in an hour. In the next 60 minutes, through dance, sex, despair, rage and joy, they explore what it is to be human.
Apocalypse Tomorrow is the first independent premiere of KIRILL & FRIENDS, a new theater company that brings together director Kirill Serebrennikov and his colleagues. On April 29 in Pattihio the play will open the program of the Cyprus International Theater Festival CITF.

Creators: Evgeny Kulagin, Ivan Estegneev, Mikhail Durnenkov, Ksenia Peretrukhina.

Starring: Nikita Kukushkin, Svetlana Mamresheva, Odin Lund Biron, Campbell Caspary, Capucine Schattleitne, Adela Maharani.

What Happens: Six characters find themselves in the same room and learn that the apocalypse will happen in an hour. They record their last words on camera, undress, dress, want to have sex and don’t want to die, call their mom, go crazy, eat earth, turn into animals, take care of each other, share the most precious things and – dance, literally for the last time.

What you’ll feel:

Onsra (boro) — To love for the last time; the feeling that love won’t last.

Putuwa (gadigal) — Warming one’s hands by the fire while gently squeezing someone else’s hands

Shěnměi píláo (chinese, 审美疲劳) — Aesthetically fatigued; exposure to so much beauty that one ceases to appreciate it.

What you need to know: Apocalypse tomorrow is the first independent premiere by Kirill & Friends, a new theatre company that brings together director Kirill Serebrennikov and his colleagues. The play for this great example of physical theatre was written by playwright Mikhail Durnenkov together with the performers, director and choreographer – it is truly a team effort. Evgeny Kulagin and Ivan Estegneev have already worked with Kirill Serebrennikov on several projects; you can get an idea of what awaits you, from the trailer of the play Baroque, produced in Russia and recently reimagined for the German stage.
