About Performance:

…When you cannot feel love, or you devalue it, unintentionally denying it  or killing it willingly..
Just because you feel  hopelessness, arrogant and  distrust has hounded you!..
When your feelings, emotions, behaviors, desires are muddled!..
When you squeeze natural needs from your mouth only and you do not care whose space you are wasting!..
When art for you goes through nihilism, blood, illustration, solid reality and is not a shelter for your soul!..
When for you the world’s  spirit is enframed  into a small seagull which you impudently name after you!
When you betray your dignity, principles, yourself  -  you  become helpless and only escape, run away is possible ,  it’s natural , yes obvious  – you take the cold iron gun, pull the trigger, and let the hot bullet into your body, hoping that the warmth of this bullet can  warm you up as well, revive and light up your lovelss not blodeless body .

Tbilisi Vaso Abashidze Music and Drama State Theatre was founded in 1926, and for many decades its repertoire consisted of only musical comedies. It was home to numerous famous Georgian directors, actors, composers, playwrights, artists and choreographers, and played an integral part in the development of Georgia’s theatre and musical culture.

In 2004 one of the best directors of the modern generation, David Doiashvili, was appointed as head of the theatre, and he can be credited with all the fundamental reforms that have taken place. The theatre’s repertoire has expanded significantly since its initial inception, and now consists of an experimental fusion of genres, including drama, musical comedy, musical drama, choreography and literary performances.

The theatre’s main focus is on the quality of dramaturgy and talented young directors. It also provides a platform to showcase the creative work of David Doiashvili and his desire to explore the language of art by changing forms, making use of mixed methods, and helping actors perform artistically. This is what preserves the theatre’s position as a leader and makes it stand above the rest.

As one of the most innovative and successful theatres in Georgia, it has received numerous prestigious awards and prizes, and continues to gain momentum not only in popularity but also in international recognition and prestige.

New and very important stage started for our theatre in the year of 2021.

Music and drama state theatre has moved to the new building and started to function with a new brand name   "New Theatre".  Georgian theatre world has been given a fascinating and exiting space, which meets up with European standards.
