*Description: Performed for the first time at the Satyricon Theater in 1988, “The Maids” made Viktyuk a bohemian icon and the symbol of a new theatrical movement. This marked the beginning of the new style, which later became known as the “Viktyuk style”, featuring the subtle lines of Art Nouveau, beauty and fantastic theatricality of action taking place on stage.
Two housemaids, the sisters Claire and Solange, have worked for many years for the same lady, who always treated them very well. However, the sisters become jealous of their boss’ wealth and decide to kill her. This performance is bold, brassily; it looks at the conventions of society and turns them into some very exciting acting.
