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.
Emotionally strong and deep performance. And very relevant. Laconic in the scenery and props, but very expressive. The chamber atmosphere on the small stage also enhances the impression. The game captivates from the first minute and does not let go until the last. Would definitely recommend it!
The new performance “Princess and Pierre” was presented at the Theater. It is designed for schoolchildren (my third-grader really liked it). We were carried away by the performance much earlier than we got to the Theater ... Only after reading the annotation, we started discussion. How did the boy and girl end up in the same toilet? What will they do there for two whole days? How can they escape from confined space? The performance was staged in 2019 by Tatyana Mikhaylyuk based on the play “Princess and Pierre” by Milena Baish (translated by Ekaterina Voronova). The whole performance takes place in a school toilet, in which two schoolchildren: an excellent student and a two-member student, are locked up on Friday night. The scenery comes to life with the help of multimedia effects created by Ashot Mefodin. Children's fantasies appear on the walls: here Pierre reincarnated as a powerful robot, here the students went for a walk in the forest. From fantasy and games, they help children to get to know each other better, to understand how they feel ... The costumes of the artists are very stylish. I even wanted all Skoda nicknames to go that way: an ideal large cell, light colors. The performance is suitable for family visits: children will laugh at the topic of situations and emotions that are already encountered in their lives, adults will remember childhood, their school years. There are only two artists on stage: Polina Shashuro (Katarina) and Arthur Matusov (Pierre). They completely reincarnated as their characters, became children ... it seems that the actors themselves are no more than 15 years old. We really liked the performance (my son is 8.5 years old). We have been discussing it for the third day. The child will constantly come up with stories about how his classmates get rid of their unsuccessful tests, how classmates communicate with pigeons. And at home we communicate exclusively in the "Sigurian" language, now we have our secrets and secrets.)
Lovely room. Very beautiful, majestic. Great acoustics. Unfortunately, the concert itself did not disappoint. Expected an easy festive aftertaste from this concert. Alas. The program was not happy enough. Yes, and the well-known "Seasons" Vivaldi sounded unsettled, with a violation of the pace. Bach sounded a little better. We will never go to this collective again.
A bold and modern vision of Shakespeare’s play “The Taming of the Shrew” with funny jokes about the realities of our lives. The performance was very funny and interesting, it looked simple and easy, but at the same time, despite all the humor and hooliganism, what a profound meaning lies in this comedy. It is about us, for us, in general, about the relationship between a man and a woman, where you can easily recognize yourself. After viewing, there were only the right thoughts for reasoning. The play of actors, dances, jokes - it looked very concise and emotional, because in Italy it could not be otherwise😄 __ The only drawback is that you need to buy tickets for the first. From the rear seats, due to the fact that there is not a very large rise in the rows, almost nothing is visible due to the heads of people sitting below.
I am very grateful to M. Brusnikina and her entire team for all Reading Circles. And the last one, devoted to Christmas and New Year, made me think: is this format of the performance better than the traditional theater. Which, by the way, I really like? Firstly, freedom, both in form and expression, and secondly, it seems to me that all the participants received great pleasure from their speeches and from the speeches of their comrades. This pleasure just pours into the auditorium, and you bathe in these emotions. And here not only joy or irony, but sadness, sadness, but still ... ho-ro-sho! And as they sing, a separate bow to Alena Khovanskaya both for the musical guide, and for her very professionally-sincere reading of Petrushevskaya (I still let a tear go), I don’t know who to distinguish from the readers, they are very different, but, probably, first of all I bow to Yulia Chebanova: I fell in love with her for a long time for “Masha” by F. Svarovsky, and yesterday she proto-stomously read the “Gulya” by Ulitskaya, easily, ironically, and with true love. Thank. I also remembered another Yulia yesterday - Kovaleva, a similar manner of reading for two Yulia - catchy, wide, akin to the heroines they read about. there was an unexpected pair of A. Krasnenkov and N. Zharycheva. They were modest, discreet-looking, and they famously read it. Wonderful. Yes, everyone is good. May I have a small remark ?? I understand everything, my native theater, but it seems to me that one should not mix the heat of a children's matinee and an adult evening. But, of course, the New Year, and all right. All bow, and many thanks.
Together - more fun! And the rain is afraid to be more cheerful, and the echoes to be called out, and the secret language to invent ...
And it's impossible to divide singly and singly into singles, it's absolutely necessary to have a comrade there!
In general, without a friend anywhere. Therefore, the kitten Gav and the puppy made friends. Now they go to visit each other and walk together.
Where it became more interesting to live! It is necessary, say, a puppy for a cutlet to hide. Then the kitten will help him: hide it in the stomach, and deal with the end. No one will find a cutlet anymore, no one will take it!
What makes us human? The ability to think? Compassionate? Speak?
And maybe we are made people understand?
A difficult question, hard, which is not easy to answer in a state of peace of mind. And when it is broken ... the answer seems completely inaccessible.
It is about the lack of "understanding" and was told in a new, highly controversial play.
It seems that the situation is simple and clear to everyone, especially in our time - a teenager in search of himself turned the wrong way.
Only, trying to try on the role of his parents - anyone could cross himself and say "chur me."
And the truth is, why look for a solution to the problem, if you can just dream that she will never look at the light?
And if you look in? Here's to the heroes of the play - looked. And what did they do? Have led the unique child on psychics, and then and at all have taken in hospital on treatment.
But is it all amenable to medical treatment, or are there things that can not be cured by any medicines? And help in such situations can only the same, the notorious ability to hear and understand?
Frozen mosaic of the collapse of the family, although ... if you look closely at it - it will begin to come alive, filled with meaning and dynamics of the rapid movement of time.
And once in this stream you can consider all the heroes of the tragedy as in the palm of your hand.
Yes, and they are not at all, as we are accustomed to. They are living, family and acutely experiencing the inability to preserve this sense of "home".
They so need each other and, at the same time, can not support each other, they can not become a support in difficult times.
There comes a whole new era and those who are too much together with the outgoing world will also have to leave. And no therapy here will not help.
It remains only to reconcile ... take what is happening as a reality and say goodbye to what was so dear to the heart once.
And also to reflect on how it would be if someone did not die, or time would be wasted with his run.
But no, time does not wait ... And even the youthful bright, slightly confused love can not improve the situation.
The garden will go for debts, and there ahead ... it is not at all clear what is there, but you still need to move, although everything is already predetermined.
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!
It is not worth the village without a righteous man.
Devotees, righteous, kind souls. They are hard on them.
Such is Maria Khristoforovna, a modest retiree. She was born in the village, working as a cleaner.
For her to help another - how to breathe. Can not pass by someone else's trouble.
How else? This was born, not at sixty the same years to change.
She has neither happiness nor money. I worked all my life - I did not save anything.
The most bitter is that she buried all her relatives. And in place of the old cemetery, the city authorities made the lake. Even the dear graves she did not have.
The adopted son did foolish things, got to prison. How many more sorrows will she have to endure?
So she fantasizes. So it's easier for her. Describes how the daughter of Brezhnev himself came to the store with gold braids. And her father walked around the city without security.
Marusenka sees in the dream of an old man. Does God call her to himself? She is tired of carrying her cross, such a heavy burden.
And why did she only intervene in the drunken fight of teenagers?
A true courage to help your neighbor. On such people the earth holds.
"Only God listens to us. We know that the last act is played for him. "
Two young servants hate the kitchen, where they are forced to spend their time.
They came up with a game every day, which became a ritual for them. One of them depicts her rich lady, and the other her maid. It is possible that they would be good actresses.

An uneasy job for an interpreter is to transfer fates. From the language of someone else's personal - to a neat stationery.
Switzerland mid-twentieth century welcomes political refugees. But not all: histories are carefully checked, read out, checked, there should not be false stories and fates, those who simply invented that he is being persecuted are not allowed to pass.
So, here you need an interpreter. A person who would record all the stories in the local language, set them down concisely and thoroughly.
He is the collector of human lives. After all, people will leave, years will fly by, and what will remain of them? A heap of notes, notes, neatly folded into the daddy's tale. Diaries and letters. That's all we are.
Be careful of the grooms to behave in the church! Otherwise, you can so look at the pretty thin fingers of an unfamiliar parishioner that the bride will not be nice either! But only Melchor himself does not know that the stranger from the church is his bride Magdalena!
That's a scandal! The groom refuses the engagement: he dreams of the girl whose hands he fell in love with! And why will not Magdalena reveal the truth to him? Does she prefer ... to be jealous of herself?

Only one did not think hasty husband: according to his conditions it turns out that his wife can change it now. And when I heard about his wife's lover, then it became a grief-wife is not to jokes!
The comedy about where the "easy" relations lead and how difficult it is to get out of the family-love peripeteias, has to laugh at, and sink, and ponder.
Maybe the couple will again understand how important in marriage is loyalty and trust? ..
