BigBilet TV at the opening of the theatrical season in the House of ActorsThe updated Actor's House develops several projects: the experimental theater site - "YES" theater, the "Open history theater" project (modern historical play), the playwrights Olga Mikhailova and Elena Isayeva, the Andrey Shchukin Theater Workshop - a theater project working in the House of the Actor for several years, will present in the new season its plastic and musical performances "Chairs", "Smile". Specially for the spectators BigBilet TV, we learned the details of the upcoming premiere on the stage of the House of Actor.
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.
The wicked sorcerer disliked the gentle, beautiful fairy and bewitched her! From now on, the fairy is a little defenseless girl. She lives in the forest ... Who will help her to regain her former appearance?
Only those who are brave in heart and are able to do good deeds unselfishly, can save the fairy from the spell. Yes, that's just not everyone will pass such a test, because those who help others free of charge and with a pure heart, not so much in this world. And all those who showed cowardice are imprisoned by a sorcerer ...
Will the lumberjob Goran manage to go through hard trials and help the fairy?
All, all, all - this is who do you think? Maybe Cova, Donkey Eeyore and Piglet? Or maybe it's Robin's family and friends?
Mom is so similar to the pink Piglet, Dad - to the very Winnie the Pooh, eternally sad uncle - the spitting donkey Eeyore, and the grandmother - the same wise as the owl.
Here they are, all the time, each has his own habits and character.
With them it is not easy, and not always they get on peacefully, but in the end they still find a common language, because together they form a small but important world.
Who would Vinnie be without his friends-buddies? How sad and lonely it would be for Robin to live without his relatives!
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? ..
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.
The house is not empty with the death of the owner.
"They are jealous not then, that there is a reason, but only in order to be jealous."
An attempt at jealousy ... Which turns into a torture of love. They do not live by reason - feelings, violent passions.
Othello is an experienced commander. He commanded the Venetian troops in Cyprus, won many battles.
It would seem that people should know. How can you manage them successfully without this?
But the love of young Desdemona overshadowed the mind. She is beautiful, like a day. The wise say - let the beauty be a stranger's wife.
I knew that he was not the only one in her madly in love. Could at least guess ... Foresee danger. But I believed the false orders of Iago, his subordinate.
Iago secretly envied Othello's happiness. Insidiousness and anger often go hand in hand. He arranged so that the handkerchief given to Othello by his wife fell into the hands of another man.
Othello orders Iago to kill the seducer of his wife.
Desdemona sobs, swears in her innocence, but her husband does not hear. Jealousy suffocating him ...
How could she betray him! There is no forgiveness for her ... But he can not live without it.
Pushkin was right: "Othello's tragedy is not that he is jealous, but that he is too trusting."
The bridegroom told the bride about "high bliss to live by his work". But will she agree to live in poverty when she becomes his wife?
A young official married a homeless woman, a modest and sincere girl. He warned her that she was trying to live honestly, she did not intend to take bribes, she was not trained to be palsy.
But his wife's sister is proud of her wealth. Yes, and the mother of a young woman advises her to demand more from her husband. Will not she go to last year's dresses?
Here also it is necessary to the official to go to the influential relative and to ask for itself a place where it will be possible to receive "unearned incomes". Otherwise, he can not see peace in his family.
It will be hard for him to gain money and gain in the world.
"What kind of a word is a bribe? They themselves invented it to offend good people. Do not take bribes, but thanks! "
A young woman, yesterday's student, life seems beautiful, because everything is still ahead.
And the truth: ahead, only not what he dreams about. Ahead of the war. The departure of men to the front. Evacuation. Childbirth at the station. Bitter life with relatives who are ready to reproach a young mother with a piece of bread.
She will run away, although in the street minus forty. For forty minutes and sparrows are dying on the fly! In such cold you realize that the main thing is the warmth of humanity and hot motherly love, they will warm and will not allow to die or despair, but, on the contrary, will help to carry through all the trials kindness and faith in the best.
Love and death. Love the young, who will defeat the enmity of the elders.
Two rich Italian families, the Montagues and the Capulet, have long been hating each other. It would seem that noble people, whence such intransigence? But the passions are raging so violently that they sweep away the lives of their children.
Romeo, the heir of one of these families, secretly entering the house of enemies fell in love with a very young Juliet, almost a girl. And she agreed to become his wife.
For her sake, she is ready to renounce her parents. The priest agreed to marry them.
But all against them. They live in a world where skirmishes and fights are daily. Bloody feuds are common, like the sunrise.
Romeo comes into conflict with Tybaldom. He has to protect his friend.
Accidentally, he kills Juliet's cousin. Romeo must escape from Verona, his native city. Otherwise, they will be put in jail, they can execute.
Parents will never approve marriage with Juliet. But how to leave a young wife?
Juliet and Romeo come up with a cunning plan. What a pity that they can not foresee everything ...
Only the death of young lovers will reconcile two hostile clans.
"What a lesson for the haters, that the sky is killing you with love!"
The past life broke, history turned around, and all who lost their comfort, there was only one thing: to flee. Associate Professor of the Department of Philosophy, the wife of a once important and influential person, Archbishop, officers - here all were equal. Their destinies are stirred up by the events of the beginning of the twentieth century. They are exiles, fleeing from their past to meet the future. What will be the alarming tomorrow - hopeful or gloomy-threatening?
The large-scale run was described in his bold play by M. Bulgakov, and the director Maria Fedosova embodied it in scenes-dreams. Does the heroes dream of what is happening? Or is it all in real life?
Philosophy for improving digestion.
Somewhere there are torrential rains, but in Koenigsberg, the weather is fine. In general, everything is fine, except for one strange thing: the birds do not fly away, and the apples do not fall. Something is really wrong here.
A good topic for a good dinner. As well as, for example, why fly balloons, or why chairs stagger.
How strange that the clock in this room resolutely refuses to tick.
And lunch is a good reason to gather with friends and develop a philosophy. Quietly and slowly. They generally do not hurry. Table talk for them is almost a religious ritual.
Words, words, words ... that's all in all, what they left us. But is it so little?
So it is not enough to understand what's what, where, where, where and why, what really is, and what a dream. Is it not enough to disrupt the human soul in small pieces and lay it down on the shelves?
Everything would go as usual, if there was no ringing at the door ... A beautiful young girl disappeared as quickly as she appeared.
Philosophers have an answer for everything. Except one - who is this girl and why did she come? Getting an autograph was just an excuse for something else ...
The golden autumn will one day end. And on the ground from the trees fall thousands of apples.
To live up to 42 years old, but nothing worthwhile is achieved. Is not that a terrible dream?
For a little man, titular counselor Poprishchyna is not just a terrible dream - it's a terrible reality.
Although, it seems, he forgot long ago, where the difference between nightmares and cruel reality. Lost in his own fantasies and painful desires to reach out to the unattainable. To at least feel so important, and maybe loved, necessary to someone. Oh, dreams ...
Well, how can you not escape under the pen with them from the impossible gray world of everyday life, from painful discontent with yourself? In the same place, in the world of illusions, it's so good ...
Although, what is it? Why do they fight around the mirror, and what are these strange creatures that seem to be reflected in the reflections inside the fragments? Maybe it's back his fears?
Oh no, no, we must run ... run away from them! Deeper and deeper and deeper into the painful, disturbing world of sleep. Deceiving his own mind, saving himself from disappointments and even more going crazy.
And what could be more interesting than watching from the side of how the alien mind plunges into darkness, if the world that creates the "madman" is so bright, captivating and full of extraordinary visions?
Star and death of Vladimir Mayakovsky.
Listen to the butterfly of the poetic heart.
Listen to it! After all, if the poet did create, he left us his poems, then this is simply necessary!
He wore a yellow sweater of three sunset arshins. And he walked the Don Giovanni and the veil.
Consider all the details, get to know him, as if he were alive. More than alive.
How do we represent it? Great, thundering! A frightened, snooty bully, hiding behind his shield like a shield, for his yellow sweater.
He was very young. And he died, and did not grow up. Poet provocateur, shouting his manifestoes. A man with a child's heart.
He still had a monument to him in his lifetime. How he hated every kind of deadness. And adored all life.
Do you know what, Mayakovsky? And let's live together?
Sugar is the taste of life. Him and ours. Sugar is the sweetness of love. Tart and unbearably bitter.
