Scandals, past crimes, political conspiracies and revolution plans – the world created by Dostoyevsky is boiling with emotions. The writer was ahead of his times and that is why today his masterpiece is like a distorting mirror to us. The insanity of the text, the passion of the dialogues present the world drunk with ideas. The performance respects the writer’s golden rule not to judge, nor point fingers.
