HAMLET Story - SAMIThe SAMi project (Commonwealth of Actors, Musicians and ...) does not need advertising! As soon as they announce the date of the performance, tickets are sold out in a matter of days! And the other day, on March 10, on the stage of the Svetlanov Hall in the House of Music again "HAMLET Story" Back in October, we watched this production in an unusual club version (which was realized due to the current conditions and is unlikely to be repeated) and shot a video about it! Director Natalya Semyonova, actors Alexei Kravchenko and Sergei Chonishvili tell us about modern Hamlets and the search for an answer to the eternal question.
"CULTURAL INVASION" - a musical and poetic production. “As a little girl I got on a strange train, I sang a ringing song and my friends were with me. Where I was yesterday, there today is not to be found, This is how my life passes, every day on the road. "- once sang the diva Irina Ponarovskaya ... Life is often compared to a train. And what, a beautiful allegory - "the train of our life" ... So, having come to the musical performance "Cultural Invasion", we first find ourselves in the waiting room: waiting for the performance and waiting for the "train" (in front of us is the train schedule board). I look at the schedule - choose any direction, you want Paris, you want St. Petersburg, you want Voronezh ... you even want "St. Petersburg-Leningrad". Yes, yes, there is such a route! And I thought - where will the "train" of the Cultural Invasion take us? And how serious will this "Invasion" be in my life? The music of Alexei Aiga performed by the ensemble "4'33", specially written for this project, and three beautiful male actors, each with their own charisma and charm: S. Chonishvili, D. Strakhov, S. Shnyrev, are playing on the stage. They perform verses of poets of the 20th century. Sergei Chonishvili had the most character and I remember them most of all. I even wanted to know the author of each poem. I don't know if this information was in the programs, and whether there were programs, I flew into the hall at the very last moment, like on a departing train. Here, again, a comparison with the "train". Such a stage solution for the performance (waiting room, station) is very successful. After all, poems are about life, love, friendship. We either meet someone, then wait, then say goodbye to someone. This is what our life consists of. For an hour and a half I immersed myself in the living of these stories in verse, periodically projecting onto my experiences and events, finding in many ways an echo of my own feelings, even though these were “men's stories”: “..... He jokingly put me in an empty carriage, I jokingly left on the train at night ... ”The performance left a pleasant aftertaste of good music and poetry, and the joy of contemplating talented actors and musicians. Therefore, I even "googled" about the creators of the project, it became interesting to me. This is the "Commonwealth of Actors, Musicians and ..." (SAMi) - a creative team, the name of which was born after the release of several similar projects. Now I will be happy to watch their other performances.
Was on June 3rd for Cultural Invasion. And on the way home, I thought how to make it a rule not to put off life and do everything in full force, without drafts. This performance turned out to be such a powerful, sober, real and uplifting invasion for me. All the performances of the theater itself are amazing, and this new work of theirs is definitely. All the same, and all the same. And each time it is like a psychotherapy session, with a guaranteed effect. I know that poetry is not for everyone, but if you want to give yourself and her a chance again, do it with YOURSELF -theatre. Because in a moment you will cease to distinguish between poetry and prose, but you will hear music and meanings that will awaken something in you, and maybe even you. I admit, I first of all go to Sergei Chonishvili. And it's always not enough for me. It seems to me that if he was talking about quantum physics, I would know it. He speaks and everything without barriers penetrates inside, into the soul, heart, head - totally. Honest, real poems told by talented actors to the live music of the wizard Alexei Aigi made my evening! And also incredibly I wanted to go to Peter. Such a sudden plunge into the St. Petersburg atmosphere happened. For this, Daniil Strakhov is more responsible than others. And how tasty, frankly and beautifully Sergei Shnyrev spoke about love and women .. mmm .. Natalia Semyonova "conducted" all these beautiful men and history without beginning or end. The magic happened again. The magic of music, the magic of the word.
On May 14 we were at this performance with my husband. I'm 62, he's 66, I'm disabled. left the second department for the first time in their life. we see ourselves in these unfortunate people, so it's hard to look at all this. The youth were having fun and my heart was breaking. I wanted to relax and unwind, but it turned out to be a bitter grief.
Since the time of the story "Childhood" in the 6th grade, Gorky for me was a boring and not at all catchy writer. But I went to the play "At the Bottom" with curiosity. I already knew that the director Y. Grymov knows how to stage classics in such a way that the boring becomes interesting, the philosophical becomes accessible, and the protracted becomes dynamic. Expectations came true 100%! The modern inhabitants of Rublevka speak in the language of Gorky, and you would never think that the play was written in 1902. Despite branded items and rich surroundings, people's problems have changed little. Someone is looking for love, who is the truth, someone is already holding the "bottom" with a stranglehold. The actors play great! Each has created a unique image. Vasilisa, Vaska Ashes, Actor seemed especially bright to me. I read reviews - many consider Luka in the play as a negative hero. And he seemed pretty to me. In a difficult situation, he is always there, finds encouraging words, calls on a person to be human. This is important! Music perfectly complements what is happening on stage. I liked the performance and will be understandable to high school students when studying the work. Theater "Modern", in my opinion, is doing a very important job - it reveals the world of classical literature for young people, and this is very valuable. And yes ... I have not read the play, but now I will probably read it ...
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!

Just a little bit more - and we will live.

And all to happiness - a stone's throw. The bright future is looming on the horizon.
You can leave - far away and for a long time. Forever. But, wherever their destiny takes them, they always take with them their fears, doubts, disappointments, themselves.
Time flows through your fingers, but nothing changes. But, it seems, the only thing that will facilitate their existence and vomit from a vicious circle is death.
Funerals are the only thing that can bring diversity to their lives. But they begin to happen with disappointing regularity.
These people are our friends, our neighbors, passers-by, whom we see hundreds every day. And, maybe, it is we ourselves?

And why did these people take the queue to the store, on the door of which hangs a sign "Accounting"?
Probably can not read. The people have picked up the most diverse - from Kyrgyz handymen to a dreamy girl, from a simple peasant to some incomprehensible drinker.
But a modest girl does not mind drinking vodka with casual acquaintances.
And then a drunken peasant will get a scolding from his wife-dressmaker. At home, except for another scandal, he does not expect anything.

The play is based on the story of Daniil Kharms.
If there are too many sorrows, it remains only to laugh at them.
A mono-performance based on Nikolai Gogol's novel was the fruit of the joint work of the artistic director of the theater Rimas Tuminas and the performer of the main and only role of Yuri Kraskov.
How to treat an official, an inconspicuous employee who decided that he was worthy of the hand of his daughter's daughter, and then imagined himself a Spanish king? Whether to grieve a poor little man who has gone mad, or all that this upstart deserves, is the specter's contempt and mockery?
There is no unequivocal answer and can not be. The feeling of humiliation, discontent with his miserable position, unrequited love played a cruel joke with Popryschin. His greatness is imaginary, and in this is his tragedy. In his imagination he puts himself too high, but is not the same the same with many of us?
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.
In Moscow, there are places that can be called "Bulgakov": here the writer lived and worked, funny stories happened to him there. But especially the interests of those locations, which placed the author of the heroes of the novel "The Master and Margarita."

Such a tram - like an echo of the past times, missed several decades, which passed unnoticed.
But Moscow, undoubtedly, has changed. What did Bulgakov's contemporaries and the author of the "Master and Margarita" see? ..

The crisis of middle age ... The crisis in creativity ...
Is it normal to make films "normal"? Or, nevertheless, you need to shoot well, if not perfectly, so that you can immediately see: the director wanted to speak out, it's important to tell, he did not shoot the film for the sake of money, for the sake of art.
But that's just where to get it, the art of it, the idea is high, if nothing goes into your head?
There are many such martyrs in the director's direction, as in any other creative profession, who try to create something worthwhile, try and try ... But it does not work out!
But if you look from the outside, then all of these creators are ... normal. Even if "something is not" in their life or in creativity, it is still possible to live and it is necessary, and it's time to think about the next film!
Inimitable madness as a response to the frenzy of the world around us.
The mono performance is perhaps one of the most complex forms of theatrical art. And what, try to keep the hall in suspense alone, and play so that the spirit captures. To want to shout: "I believe! Unconditionally I believe! "It is difficult, difficult, almost impossible.

Here, too, the scrofulous scarf dropped to the feet, the sign gave. And this longing in the breast of the sim gave birth, which is just what is being done - this is how it dreams. But why laughter around? Can not you fall in love with him? It is possible, of course, only it is unlikely that there will be a general's daughter ...
But he knows for sure! Or is he just mad !?
