Inga Oboldin about the performance "On special occasions" - for BigBilet TVThe play "On special occasions" at the Anton Chekhov Theater is a frank conversation between two close people, and a family life without embellishment, and answers to many philosophical questions. Are all happy families happy in the same way, and the misfortunes of unhappiness are different? Where does true love begin ... and does it exist at all? Come find the answer with us.
A fresh look - "Onegin" in the variation of the "Commonwealth of actors, musicians and ..." (SAMI). The performance is deceptively simple. No decorations (only a huge screen at the back of the stage). No costumes. Actually, there is no obvious scenography either. There are four actors in quite modern clothes who stand on the stage more than they sit and sit, more than they walk. And the text, the same Pushkin, familiar to the last comma. It would seem that. But no! The text (both Pushkin and the Author) is played with the viewer: they sometimes beckon the familiar “My uncle of the most honest rules ...”, then they confuse, starting from the end, mixing scenes and events, then they make me feel lost in the maze of phrases ( ? Or Pushkin, but I do not remember? Or not "EO"? And who said that ?!). And what a face! What voices! These people do not need costumes and makeup, they know a different secret of reincarnation. Irina Pegova, Sergey Chonishvili, Daniil Strakhov and Sergey Shnyrev exist in the “gave a free novel” and in our reality. They conquered the hall immediately, not giving a chance to escape for a minute, from the first to the last word spoken from the stage. And, of course, music. Also on the verge between here and there, now and sometime. The composer Alexey Aigi wrote his Onegin, without losing the roots and connections. The music and the ensemble that plays it live, right on the stage, are full participants in the action. During this performance, I was presented with Pushkin. The eternal hooligan, who died unacceptably early, and a 220-year-old monument to himself. The head of the school textbook and "son of a bitch." Genius And why am I all this? It is urgent to re-read "Eugene Onegin"! And find those texts that "non-Pushkin"! And look again!
Live music. The orchestra cheerfully enters, enhances the drama and gives the performance optimism. Composer Alexei Aigi, on the stage with his Ensemble "4:33" creates. It is as biting and poetic as Pushkin himself. You will pay attention to him when you watch the play. The cast draws attention. Sergey Chonishvili as an unreliable or reliable narrator, he decides. It seemed that the real Sergey was such a boy, who was able to empathize, support and at the same time was serious. I caught myself thinking that for a moment I stopped delving into phrases, I just enjoy my voice. And not only Sergey, Irina Pegova is a single star on the stage, the only woman, and also the only woman who can play Tatiana so subtly. Of course, the arrows Daniel Strakhov and Sergey Shnyryov make us pay attention to ourselves. Unique types, strong, meaningful. For such a statement had to answer the director Natalia Semenova three times called on the bow. The audience is delighted, I hope the actors enjoyed playing for such an audience.
I really like how Vladimir Alekseevich reads his poems, I like his selection of authors, poets, entertaining stories about interesting people, meetings. Received great aesthetic pleasure. Now about the minuses_ the chairs creak very loudly, when I heard, I did not move anymore. but I am not alone in the hall, a very quiet sound of the microphone, I had to ask for it to be amplified, but the sound engineer is sitting at the monitor, what does he not hear? The hood is noisier louder than the Artist. And finally, I understand the age of the Artist, I understand that a lot of creative people have recently been lost. But why such minor notes in a monologue, on the stage? Why so much talk about another world? You are on stage, in front of you is a spectator, life goes on, enjoy every new day, moment. I wish you health and optimism !!!
Music of M.P. Mussorgsky decorates this kind of fairy tale, in which both the spectators take a little part, and the actors play to the glory, and without the dolls, of course, it did not: the Bear - well, is not it cute? But Masha - what a lovely little girl, just a doll with fervent pigtails and blue eyes!
But the girl Mashenka only seems fragile and naive: she is a smart Bear, and managed to show his character at his guest. And hands (that is, of course, paws!) To clean the toe thanks to Masha will learn, and find out what it is like to keep a word. A little Bear will become human - and on health, it will be useful to him!
The girl at the Bear will wait, and then she will want to return home. How can she persuade a hairy man to bring her to his relatives? ..
The woman Dog tamed, lured him with a sweet bone, now the Dog will sit on a leash and guard the dwelling, now he - along with the Man, lives in his family. Now he is home.
The woman has tamed the cow: the cow was tempted by a succulent grass, fragrant hay, has agreed to stand in a stall, to give to the person milk, to be - a domestic cow.
I tamed the Horse, now the Horse serves the man, there was also the horse once-wild, but became-home.
And Cat? It would be useful to tame a cat, she would catch mice and cradle a child, rumble and mourn, sing songs to him ... Yes, only how will you tame it, masterful? She walks by herself ...
Sooner or later they will find you ...
If you do not find them first. Abandoned rooms tell more than letters from the pages. The best way to get to know a person is to come to visit him. Paintings on the walls, smells and sounds like fingerprints preserve the uniqueness of man.
Dreamed to meet the heroes of your favorite book? They are alive. And they are waiting for you. Is "Master and Margarita" not a wonderful book? For it paid a pittance. Being a writer is not so profitable. But whatever you say, the writers are special people. Who else knows how to free imagination so that new worlds are born in the minds of others? It is more interesting to observe where this person lived. What things surrounded him. What air he breathed.
We like to read books. Inhale the smell of typographical pages. And feel the breath of another era, other people. But God forbid himself to become a writer. No matter how you try to stop the stream of thought, everything is in vain. Imagination continues to work, like a computer in sleep mode. You can not turn it off. It studies reality. Lies dust on the furniture and spreads on the table, evaporates the aroma of the floorboards. That's all that's left after you. And thousands of greedy eyes and ears will be interested in your life.

... "There would be sex, like a cigarette shoot: girl, sorry, but you will not have sex? "Oh, no, I quit."

This theater can rightly be called one of the most popular.
Witty performances collect complete rooms.
The actor's talent for artists is worthy of a storm of applause.
Interesting reasoning about the male and female logic.
Laugh from the heart and take note, dear ladies.
Holy man. But the first impression is deceptive! And under the monastic robe, a swindler and a con man may be hiding. A real werewolf in a cassock.
He came in search of an overnight stay, but decided to look for something more vain. Who will suspect the saint in unrighteous deeds?

It's amazing how people fall for flattery! The rich man is so enamored of him! Even ready to give his daughter to marry this rascal.
It would have been better if he had saved hospitality for other occasions. You never know what kind of snake you will warm on your chest.
When the boa constrictor starts to strangle you, it will be too late.
To deal with him will need a huge effort. The cunning man can find a way out of the traps.
To lie is embarrassing and unprofitable.
What are the hands given to us, how not to take?
Keep your head up. A good suit, more confidence in the look. Look at yourself in the mirror. Poured auditor. Do not distinguish.
They will be afraid of you. But they can not get rid of you. A small deception will open up broad prospects for career growth.
You would have seen their faces when they read this letter! Eyes of fear ran from side to side. They were convulsively thinking, to whom to bring to cover themselves.
Money itself and flowed directly into the hands. No, you, not bribes. So, thanks for the rendered service. Close your eyes to small deficiencies, you know.
Living in the clouds, it hurts to fall down. So you have to take what they give and go away quickly. Vice and impunity still can rule the world!
But everyone goes numb when a real auditor arrives in the city. The party is just beginning!
Each premiere in the Mayakovsky Theater is an event. And not only because this theater has long acquired a "name", but also because the choice always falls on works very unusual, and sometimes specially created for this "scene".
And the "Russian Romance" is no exception. Delivered by Mindaugas Karbauskis on the play of Marius Iwaszkiewicz, who already created for the theater of the delightful "Kant", the performance, the space of which was re-created on the stage by Sergey Barkhin, will necessarily become the pearl of the theatrical season.
So, what will the prime minister tell us about?
This time the speech with the audience will lead to literature, geniuses in literature and their lives, how written, not written, and even the works conceived by the author affect his life. And if we undertake to study the subject of such a subtle - then certainly on the example of one of the most solid, large and significant figures of Russian literature - Lev Nikolaevich Tolstoy.
We, the submissive authorities of the director and the author of the play, will be transferred to the everyday life of the genius creator, in which the fates of fictional heroes are mixed with the fates and lives of his relatives and friends. But, maybe, they not simply mix up? Maybe they are fighting desperately with each other for the "first" place in his life? Who will win? And can there be any victory in such a battle?
