The students of “Nazarbayev Intellectual School in Semey” watched the play “Shakarim. Zholsyz zhaza”

Semey youth theater “Dariga-ai” presented to spectators a historical staging entitled “Shakarim. Zholsyz zhaza”. The performance, where the life and work of the outstanding poet and philosopher Shakarim Kudaiberdiev were narrated, transferred the audience to the historical time when the great Shakarim’s poetry were born. The representatives of the younger generation, the students of “Nazarbayev Intellectual School of Physics and Mathematics in Semey” also attended the given performance.
The stage performance was presented on the eve of the 160th anniversary of the birth of Shakarim. The authors of the theatrical performance are directors Zhuldyzbek Zhumanbay and Amangeldy Bakhtinov.
– Theater is a mirror of life. Such kind of staging which describes the real life with all its difficulties has a considerable influence on human upbringing. This is a very good example and experience for schoolchildren who do not still understand the “good” and “bad”. The students who used to read about the difficult fate of Shakarim only from school textbooks, now had the opportunity to see his entire history through a theater prism. The drama group gave our students spiritual food as well as a reason for further reflection”, – said Larisa Abylkasimova, Deputy Director for educational work at Nazarbayev Intellectual School.
At the end of the performance, the young spectators expressed their gratitude to the artists with a burst of grateful applause. At the same time, the students had the opportunity to personally communicate with the actors, get to know each of the characters and ask questions about the play.
– We one more time were convinced that reading and seeing everything with own eyes are completely different things. I understand how difficult it was to put up a play about such a significant historical figure as Shakarim. Therefore, I am very grateful to the theater team for their work. They gifted us special emotions while watching the play. I wish the team success in their future work, – shared his impressions of the performance the 10th grade student Turar Kametai.
