How the New Art Theater livesIf our cultural observer Julia Nagornaya did not spend so much time on social networks, then perhaps she would never have known about the existence of the New Art Theater in Moscow. After all, it happened completely by accident. Namely, the theater actor Grigory Anashkin invited Julia to the performance and, as they say, started.
The performance has everything - laughter and tears, melancholy and joy ... But, most importantly, throughout the entire performance it is somehow unobtrusive, as if questions about the complexity of being arise by themselves, and they do not let go for a long, long time .... "They cannot die, but there is no place to live there anymore" "Everything has already been negotiated" ...... What about us? Do we have "where to live"? The same routine ... And what about us? Do we always find a topic for conversation? Alas, we are more and more silent, buried in the TV, in the computer, at best in the book ... Life goes on, and we all wait - just about it will happen and we will be happy ... But, as the author of the play Danila said Privalov "" We must appreciate what we have here and now. Because it may not be better. Even THERE. "
I didn't like the performance. I believe that theater, art in general, should raise the viewer to its level, and not fall for the needs of the crowd and for its empty entertainment. Gogol's "Overcoat" is a piercing thing, the tragedy of a little man, they made a funny musical with dances and songs out of it, and when a naked hairy actor jumped out of another overcoat, ran to the second floor and, turning, began to play the saxophone, which covered the causal places ... Well, you can't make a farce out of everything, you need the viewer, especially the young, to worry, experience certain feelings, and not look dismissively at the stage and grin, well, come on, make me laugh.

Political theater. Can such a phenomenon exist? Perhaps it is indispensable to exist.
Especially when the main "policy" is in the mutual relations of the heroes, in their views on the world, in their life position, which is formed into understanding, anticipation, insight.
For them, the world is a ship sailing from Mexico to Germany. Here they are safe, here they are not trapped by the horrors of the world with its new realities. Here you can just live, for a brief moment to find your happiness.
Different ages, nationalities, even political convictions - all this for them - is only an occasion for communication. The reason for the search for mutual understanding and ...
But this "and" does not happen. Maybe because the slightly blurred images of the characters create that unique atmosphere that is possible. When people, running away from something or being on their way to their "end", seem to be trying to get rid of sad thoughts, but .. it does not work.
And now, literally around them is the oppressive feeling of stickiness and inevitable death in a country where fascism has defeated.
But who is to blame for this, maybe they themselves? Perhaps, their passivity in relation to life brings them to this disastrous line?
It's up to you to decide, well, for now, the ship is on the road.
