"İmmolatio" ("The act of sacrifice”) is the play written by poet Leyla Begim and director of film Efim Abramov. A play written in verse is dedicated to two great enlightened thinkers who were born in the same year, lived at the same historical time but in different parts of the world – one in the East and one in the West, in Azerbaijan and Bohemia (the territory of present Czechia).
Imadeddin Nesimi (1369-1417) and Jan Hus (1369-1415) born in the same year in 1369 had similar views, ideas and even approach to the preservation and development of their native language, and they both met the same tragic fate. Above all, the play is the reflection of possible unity of two cultures and views of representatives of the East and West. The possibility of such cultural unity of two nations and two different social societies is particularly important for the world community in today’s confrontation between East and West.
The drama space allows bringing the historical events together - we give the chance to the characters of the play to interact with each other. The dialogues of Nesimi and Hus represent the search for the connecting paths between West and East, but above all, it is an urge to hear each other. This urge arises also among the young students of the Prague University, the characters who live in the 21st century and who are also representatives of the East and West.They believe that both Nesimi and Jan Hus left a message to future generations. The search for this message, represented in the form of a roll call between the 15th and 21st centuries and different generations, reflects the main dramatic, cultural and ideological essence of the play.
The play written in verse in Russian has been translated into Azerbaijani by Shahrun Suleymanova and English by Gulnara Hall, also in verse. The premiere of the episodes from “Immolatio” took place in the Maksud Ibrahimbeyov Museum. These episodes, staged by Vagif Asadov, the People's Artist of Azerbaijan, were presented by the actors of Azerbaijan State Russian Drama, Azerbaijan Youth Theatre and Azerbaijan State National Drama Theatre as an immersive show in Azerbaijani and Russian
