“The Black-Faced” is about the terrible, destructive power of religious ignorance. It shows us that in fact humanity, sincere belief in a higher power and religion may be different, non-overlapping concepts. That religion is not just an ability to pronounce the word “Allah”, light a candle or perform the rites, in the first place it is a doctrine that should always stand up for the human, even if the person is in conflict with the society. The worst thing is when religion becomes an instrument to control the masses of ignorant people.

More than two years ago, when we started rehearsing this play, there were no signs of terrible events that shocked the world latter, but, apparently, there was something in the air that inspired us to create “The Black-Faced”.
