Dismissed from the Chekhov Moscow Art Theatre, Dmitry Nazarov wrote a poem called "New Reality" in which he talks about freedom, protest and the importance of resisting authority:
Breaking away from the old life
Blowing away the dusty weariness
Crossing over myself
I am entering a new reality.
There is something joyful about it.
Around the bend to meet the wind
Although even before the turn
This world was both quiet and bright.
Now tearing hair and thoughts
Neither hot nor cold, fresh
And blowing new meaning
The usual cuts in a big way.
And you are stuck in a holy place
sorted by breed,
Smeared with hearty dough,
With your shit and sweet honey.
A blizzard whistles in your pens,
In the feeders miserable leftovers,
And you bite each other
And it is necessary to gnaw the cells with fangs.
Submission was hammered into our tonsils
With fear together stinking,
I also followed the commands
To which he was accustomed from childhood.
But this new reality
Without boots and leash
Gives so much versatility
That you suffocate a little.
In mid-January, the head of the Chekhov Moscow Art Theater, Konstantin Khabensky, fired Nazarov and his wife, Honored Artist of Russia Olga Vasilyeva. According to media reports, the reason was "statements about the NWO and anti-Russian sentiments."
In May, Nazarov read two poems about the "meaningless parade", in which every year there is "more and more bitter falsehood."
