Irina Slutskaya – I wanted to try myself on the stage and I did it!

Translation of an article printed in the Russian Language publication on April 9, 2008.

World Champion, two time Olympic medalist Irina Slutskaja debuted on the theatrical stage. After the premiere of “Antigone Always,” she told the press why she decided to participate in the play based on the great Sophocles tragedy.

Said Irina – “I was interested in trying myself on the theatrical stage. It was later that I understood how difficult it was to work on my role. However, nothing is easy in this life. Even now, when I completed the play, it is still not easy for me. It is too early to say if it was a success, but thankfully, it was not a bust either. While preparing for the play I was working on my diction, my pronouncement of the words, with the director, Nika Kosenkova, and we are continuing this work even now. She is a great teacher and a very interesting person who has very keen feelings for poetry and literature. It was very interesting to work with her.

I am also thankful to my partners who gave me a lot of help and support. I think that they saw that I was not slacking, but put in a lot of hard work. I also understood that acting on stage was hard work, which requires a lot of physical and emotional strengths. Now I would like to try myself in the movies.”
