The season is scheduled to be opened later than usual, on September 23. The 98th year of the Drama Theater will begin with 'Constantine Ivanov' (Hot Blooded Gentle Soul), a play by the 20s screenwriter and director Joachim Maksimov-Koshkinsky.

The play is a tribute to the work of Joachim Maksimov-Koshkinsky as the founder and first director of Chuvash theater and cinematography. August 30, 2015 marks the 40th anniversary of his departure from life.

Like many contemporaries the boy who was born in the Tetyushi raion of Tatarstan in 1893 went to Simbirsk Chuvash School. After graduation from Kazan Art School he went on to stage the first Chuvash production in Kazan theater in 1918. He moved the theater to Cheboksary in 1920, and in 1925 produced his first full feature films. The premiere of his film 'The Volga Rebels' in which both Chuvash and Russian actors played happened on June 22, 1926. During Stalin's repressions Joachim Maksimov was detained (1937) and his films were destroyed. Maksimov-Koshkinsky was rehabilitated in 1956 and died 1975 in Moscow and was buried in Cheboksary.

The National Library of Chuvash Republıc concluded the camera readings for project 'Narspi Reading' and is assembling the final video.

At the first stage the poem was divided into small parts and very quickly distributed among 120 participants. The organizers themselves couldn't help being amazed by many phone and e-mail requests to reserve parts of the poem for themselves, relatives and friends.

The project spread worldwide. Parts of Ivanov's poem were read in Russia, USA, Sweden, China, Kuwait, Peru, Germany, UK, Goa, Turkey, Spain, Mexico, Canada, Australia, Ireland, Greece, Jordan, Austria, Kazakhstan, Hungary, Finland, Thailand, Latvia, New Zealand -- 45 cities in 25 countries.

Among the participants are the President of "Avan-T-garde" Chuvash Culture Association in France Olga Nikolaeva with her Secretary Olga Barbier, Norwegian poet Gunnar Wærness, and Swedish translator Michael Nydahl.

The organizers have records of all of the parts and are preparing the final video for release on the Library's website on May 27 2015, the 125 anniversary of poet Konstantin Ivanov's birth.
