Anatoly Ogay and Tatiana Kim, Kazakh writers, directors and producers, bring their latest work OTOSOTR to the major theatre festival Fringe held in Edinburgh in August.
A story of one of the 200,000 Koreans who were deported from the Russian-Korean boarder by the Soviet government in 1937. It is an exploration of the life of a Soviet soldier of Korean descent Anatoliy Ogay. This is a journey of a WWII hero who fought Nazis in Berlin in 1945, survived the communist regime in 1991 and preserved his Korean identity throughout his life. This powerful, extraordinary story that is told by his grandson traces his grandfather’s life journey through a witty text, multimedia storytelling and contemporary music.
