For me, "Ward N 6" is a performance about incomprehension, about the unusual being often treated as abnormal. The Doctor, who has found the most interesting interlocutor in a mad patient, is himself perceived as a madman by the surrounding people. A delicate and intelligent man starts crossing the borders of the familiar, "normal" circle of contacts and becomes an outlaw, smothered with hypocrite care. This care simulates the social urge to get rid of the man who irritates them by his otherness, by their inability to understand him
"Ward N 6" is one of the most intimate, most confessionary productions of the Theatre. It was first produced on the stage of the Bolshoi Theatre of Russia, but not only did it not lose a jota of its potent emotional tension in the transference to the "KYIV MODERN-BALLET" Theatre, but acquired some new, typically Chekhovian nuances.
The story of a person, who, being different from others, becomes an outlaw, is exceedingly burning at our time. That is why, perhaps, the shock this ballet arouses among the audience can be compared with the catharsis after the world-best dramatic productions.
