Shanghai Tower
501 Yincheng Zhong Lu, near Lujiazui Huan Lu


“All is Paid” is a tragicomedy about a lonely and rich monsieur who buys different kinds of love right on the street: a young prostitute becomes his daughter, an experienced actress becomes his wife, and an artist is his friend. Now they all have to play their roles for money while Monsieur Amilcar pays, but the experiment quickly leads to unpredictable consequences. Director's Statement: "This time, while working on the play, we decided to immerse ourselves in 'presence.' The actors engaged with various techniques, both from the classical theatrical school and through extensive experimentation with movement, sound design, visuals, and film. We developed scenography and sets that appear distorted on the plane, floating in space, or taking on new, unexpected perspectives for the audience. By altering the plane of the stage, we invite the audience to experience different realities that fill the lives of the characters." "Monsieur Amilcar" was staged immediately after the war, and Ives Jamiaque was named the best comedian in France at that time. Language: Russian. Subtitles: English Time: 7.30pm. Duration: 2 hours.
