Theater of Mark Weil “Ilkhom” presents two premiere performances in December – “Love, Death & Rock’nRoll” and “Night at the tavern East-West”. Each performance is the unique and eclectic project

On December 7 and 8 “Ilkhom” presents an international project “Love, Death & Rock’n'Roll” by director and choreographer Florian Bilbao (Germany).

In this unusual play actors are playing themselves – they will take the stage with their own problems and experiences and will express it through the words, music and choreography.

Each of us has something that hard to remember. And it is impossible to forget. It is these images and the stories of real people was put together in the space of the performance. Project was born of love, life and death.

Music for the play in the style of “ethno-prog rock” was written by the German composer Moritz Gagern, it will be performed by well-known Uzbek rock musicians.

The project was created with the support of the Goethe Institute and the Friedrich Ebert Foundation.


On December 11 and 12 project “Night at the tavern East-West” by the famous Central Asian director Ovlyakuli Khodjakuli will be staged on the “Ilkhom” scene.


The plot of the play “Night at the tavern West-East” consists of works: “West-Eastern Divan” by Goethe, “Tattabubu” by Zulfikarov,”Layla and Majnun” by Navoi and “Sheikh Sanan” by Attar.
