Press Paradox is a theatre performance by the group 8lidí. I prepared the music for the show, which was created collaboratively – eight actors who are at once directors, dramaturgs, and scenographers, plus me.
The focus is on Russian opposition journalist Arkady Babchenko, who – in cooperation with the Ukrainian secret service – faked his own death in May 2018 in order to uncover a real plot to kill him.
The show was originally produced in Divadlo Disk, later migrating to Palác Akropolis where you can still go see it.
