Inessa was 28 december on Cafe Idiot

Choreographer Alexander Pepelyaev presented his vision of Dostoevsky's famous novel Idiot. If you are wondering how it is possible to put a huge romance in an hour and a half ballet - this performance (laureate of the Russian National Theater Award “Golden Mask” -2016 in the nomination “Modern Dance / Best Performance”) will help to answer it. The action takes place in the cafe Idiot - this is a kind of place to which the viewer comes, perhaps without even thinking about any novel, where different things start happening to him in a mystical, dostoevsky way. In the foreground are cafe tables, and the characters are a lot of dancers, women and men, in bright red costumes stylized as the second half of the 19th century. Nastasya Filippovna stands out among them - at the beginning in a white dress, an innocent young girl, then she grows up, falls into a whirlpool of passion, and now people in red are already exposing her, leaving only underwear. A quiet child's voice reads excerpts from the novel, about Nastasya Filippovna’s childhood, about Prince Myshkin’s epilepsy. It really helps to clarify what is happening on stage. It is interesting that each artist of the novel is represented on the stage by several artists: the images flow one into the other, and you catch yourself thinking that it is not clear whether Myshkin or Rogozhin, Aglaya or Nastasya Filippovna are in front of you. Is it really important? Plastic performance perfectly conveys the impressions arising from the reading of "Idiot". Lyubov Myshkina to Nastasya Filippovna, her lostness and loneliness, Rogozhin's jealousy. Nastasia Filippovna’s throwing between Myshkin and Rogozhin, as well as several variants of her death, are very gracefully shown. I think that the play deserves its “Golden Mask” - an incredibly beautiful visual component, an amazing plastic of artists and a deep philosophical meaning, all that is so valued in contemporary art!

Review

Hey-hey, do not pass by! Cafe "Idiot" is ready to open its doors for any visitor. And to glance at the friendly light of this cozy establishment, it is not necessary to be a big admirer of Dostoevsky!

You can not even reconcile the name and work of the great author. Just getting inside, do not be surprised when you swirl a whirlwind of extraordinary, "Dostoevsky", mystical events.

Here you can also look at the huge screen, watching the transformations, all the mysterious meaning of which emphasizes the unusual costumes of the dancers in the style of freak haute couture, and you can try to distinguish one Prince Myshkin from another, oh, maybe even from the third!

But will it be released when he was just Prince, but now he clearly resembles the rebel Rogozhin! And who is this girl? Maybe Nastasya Filippovna? But why are her eyes tied? However, if they were not tied up - she would still not see where her whims and follies lead. And the young man, fussily cleaning the chairs on her way, the new Myshkin ... How touching and sad ....

And how amazingly subtly conveys the absurdity and beauty of what is happening - the path of the fall, which, together with the dancers, the viewer also passes. How bright is the meaning, laid in one of the most difficult novels, in dance, turning into something incredibly close, voluminous and understandable in its sensuality.

So, the visual theater invites you to a dialogue. And only you can tell if he has succeeded in recreating the feelings and images that arise when we open the worn cover of an old book.
