Comedy without Words
"In the Inspector General, I decided to collect in one heap all the bad things in Russia that I knew then, all the injustices that are being made in those places and in those cases where the most is required of a person of justice, and at one time laugh at everything"
In the Ermolovsky Theater, the famous comedy by N. Gogol "The Inspector General"
Will be told without words.
"Humor in motion is a complex and ingenious process. It is necessary to find such expression of humor through plastic, which would be understandable to the viewer. This is a scrupulous process of search and selection. This is not humor for the sake of humor, because it is necessary to convey a certain character, a certain emotion, a certain situation.
The text of Gogol, familiar from the school bench, is relevant today. The thoughts, situations, habits of the heroes are recognizable. Two-facedness and fear are the driving forces of this story. "Fear has big eyes". People from fear can make the most unexpected decisions.
Khlestakov for me is a chameleon. His nature is such that he can attach himself to any situation, put on any mask and "get out of the water". Deprived of the usual language in the play, he reveals his essence through the plasticity of the body. He is two-faced, although we all, probably, sometimes pretend not to be who we are, especially in our life today. "
How did it happen that Khlestakov, an empty man, in essence, for an important state person, was accepted, for the inspector, the auditor?
Yes, it's very simple. Everyone knew that the auditor would soon arrive and check everything: how are things going in the city, are not bribes taken by officials, is the church built, for which money from the state treasury was allocated? And the officials were afraid, the officials were shaking, because they were all bribe-takers, and money for the church was stolen, and communications in the city are more important than business.
In each they were ready to suspect the inspector. And just then Khlestakov in the tavern stopped! He persuaded, assured me that he just drove through the road (and it's true!), But they did not believe him, thought that he decided to take his eyes off everyone. Now they please him now, they treat him, and meanwhile the real auditor is already on his way, in a day or two he will come, and he will not let anyone down!
“ Very specific setting. Gone in 20 minutes after the start. Apparently, many do not like it, because some people left almost immediately.
“ Yesterday I visited the play "The Inspector General". I liked the young guys from Germany (Russian-speakers) who did not know anything about Russian literature, let alone the Russian audience!
“ Was at the play on October 15. Got a lot of positive emotions. I recommend everyone to see this performance!
