The Self-Murder (3 stars)

This article is from 2008.

This physical theatre show from Russian company Stop! See! Sense! Russia! is a well-intentioned attempt to address the problem of suicide among the nation's youth. The show, which employs a daily revolving cast and multimedia, dramatises an encounter between a boy and girl who have made a suicide pact on the internet. While energetically performed it's a tad earnest and pretentious.

clubWEST @ The Royal College of Surgeons, 527 1562, until 25 Aug, 1pm, £12 (£10).

I'm absolutely sure that it is NOT a good idea to transfer political questions and situations into the sphere of theatre, science etc.
Reading the given review the Georgia-Osetia conflict stamp tranparently seen.
That is why I would use the term "pretentious" for the given review, but not for the show.
I've seen the show, and I mark it 6 stars. People, it is necessary to see the beauty and the show, but not somebody's political opinion.
