On the stage of the Roman Viktyuk Theater, at the beginning of the 21st century, we can see a 16th century play created by an unknown author. Directed by Igor Nevedrov, familiar to theater-goers for his acting work. As in other performances of this theater, we see unusual decorations, a good selection of music, humor and unexpected surprises for the audience.

The plot is built on a love triangle: a handsome young man comes to Venice and immediately finds himself in a relationship with two beautiful ladies at the same time. One burns with passion, the second is inspired by himself. “There I ask, but here they ask me,” admits Julio (actor Ivan Ivanovich). Whom will he prefer? Or would he want to stay in a love triangle?..

The theme of love triangles is not new either for Russia, or for Venice, or in the 21st century, or in the 16th … What are the tempting features of love triangles? Why do many people prefer not the dyadic one, but the triad? Whether it's an obvious triad, obvious to everyone, or a hidden one, when one of the partners may not know that he was in a triangle, but unconsciously he made the choice to enter the triangle. What are the benefits of a love triangle?

1. "Someone else is tastier"

The situation of competition gives the experience of struggle, excitement, increases the value of the object for which there is a struggle. The more forces are put on achieving the goal, the more satisfaction from victory. At the same time, for someone, the situation of competition is key: the object of love itself is not so important as the struggle for it. Individuals with a fixation on the topic of competition constantly compete in love, but after achieving victory they lose interest in the won "prize" and are looking for a new struggle. Therefore, they cannot be in a monogamous relationship: they need competition. This behavior is typical for the so-called hysterical structures with fixation in childhood three to five years: at the age of the oedipal triangle "mom-dad-me".

2. "It will not be enough!"

Age fixation in infancy can lead to constant internal hunger. Such a person feels inside emptiness, cold and loneliness, he is far from mature self-sufficiency, he constantly needs care and attention. In partners he is looking for a parent to compensate for his childhood deficits. And since a partner is not an ideal parent, but a partner, he cannot satisfy all these deficits. And then a logical decision arises: to have two partners at once (or even more) in order to be saturated from different sources at the same time. This is a kind of "emotional gluttony" or even "vampirism" - partners are used to satisfy children's hunger.

3. "I take revenge, and my revenge is terrible"

Cheating is painful, and in some cases the desire to hurt your partner is behind the cheating. This kind of betrayal can be demonstrative, the deceiver, consciously or unconsciously, makes the partner know about the betrayal and suffers. This can be revenge both on the partner himself and on a completely different object (a parent from childhood or a partner in a previous relationship). In this case, the motivation is "emotional sadism."

4. "Ave me!"

It is pleasant when people are competing and fighting for you. Self-esteem and self-worth increases. Therefore, creating a love triangle around you can be an attempt to feel your own worth. Accordingly, the sense of this value is lacking. This may be the result of children's complexes: “ugly ducklings”, having become “beautiful swans”, can collect love victories, playing out for a “difficult childhood”.

5. "Well, don't, well, I didn't want to"

The inability to get something in a basic relationship or show something to a partner, for example, aggression, leads to the formation of connections on the side. Contrary to the myth, more often it is not sexual, but emotional deficits that get on the side, while sex is secondary. At the same time, men more often gain respect, and women - tenderness. Communication on the side does not solve problems with the main partner, but gives balance, like a crutch, and then the triangle becomes the key to preserving the marriage.


Triangles, multiple connections allow you not to enter into emotionally deep relationships. This type of relationship is associated with intimophobia - fear of heart intimacy. Behind this lies a deep emotional trauma: the fear of its repetition makes you keep your heart closed.

But what the characters of the play are experiencing and why they ended up in the triangle, you will see in the theater.
