Neon wine encourages everyone to have a good time.
The party will be held in The Wall on 2 bridges that connect Revolutionary street and shopping center “Nemiga 3”. The organizers promise the guest 2 dance floors, unique sound and light, space scenery, juicy line-up of local artists, as well as a performance from OTRADA and a charity auction.

Arche & Ket (16+)
Where: str. Oktyabrskaya 16, corpus 27, Ок16
When: 10 of september from 19:00
Price: 18 rub.
The premiere of “Arche & Ket” in “T. O. K.” is what you need for a cozy evening with friends and loved ones. This is a performance that you definitely will not go for the sake of the plot. The production of “Arche & Ket” is just about the fact that love is not a template, it can be both a second between who you were and who you wanted to become, and the fruit of work in a relationship.
“Arche & Ket “is cruel and honest: you will not be able to say that”it’s not about me.” The play is based on the play of Georgian author Dimitri Uchaneishvili, there are no obscene expressions and unexpected twists, but “Arche & Ket” is imbued with philosophy in every breath. Question ” what is love?” is particularly relevant.
Director Anton cake and Irina Broad claim that everyone in “Arche & Ket” can see something of their own: love the illusion, love is moment, love is work. How often one thinks of love. Not feel, not discussing, and thinking. Think of her. Believes or denies its existence. Honest and brutal conversation about how, that feels every in relations, – heroes pass through this test. Fleeing from persecution, Archie and cat again and again recall their history in detail. Moments that would change everything, seconds in which everything could be different – is it possible to catch up with them? This is a conversation about love, long in life itself, where there is no blame, but everyone is guilty.
You will not be left alone with your thoughts after the performance: you can participate in the discussion. And, believe me, you will have what to discuss!
