Nino Kasradze - Actress. Recites contemporary writer Davit Barbakadze "Silence"

“This poem “Silence” was written in 1993. I read it a couple of days ago and I felt like it was mine, that it was about me, my pain…It is amazing, what Dato Barbakadze felt in remote 1993, that has affected me at such an extent today? Why these words...What exactly is so magical in this combination of words: “they were gone and peace reigned”. This might be genuine poetry. It is constantly here, always alive, always affecting.. In other words, it creates a permanent Present… “

“What would be the best poem for me to recite? Nikoloz BarataShvili’s “Twilight over Mtastminda”, because I frequently miss this poem. It is a very beautiful poem by its syllable system. It is the first poem, where the Nature is a lyrical hero’s interlocutor and is interesting content-wise too. It is a strive to celesti; it is a quest for truth. And it ends by a hope”.

the knight in the panther's skin

Shota Rustaveli’s “The Knight in the Panther’s Skin” or, alternatively, “The Knight in the Tiger’s Skin” is a poem that invites a reader to an adventure and exposure to the unknown and mysterious. Surely, the medieval literature of Georgia that preceded Rustaveli’s poem has a great deal of mystery in itself: it was a religious literature of devotion to the Trinitarian God, whom it is impossible to fathom and who, thus remains thoroughly mysterious.
