Musical-plastic performance "Orchestra" (18+)
The author of the play is Jean Anuy
The play premiered on January 27, 2018
Sometimes it seems that the "orchestra" is a kitchen somewhere in the Moscow, St. Petersburg or Kiev communal, where the mistresses gossip about food, husbands, lovers, the weather. Where there is always a public toilet. The sound of utensils, the clinking of knives, forks, the gurgling of soup in pots, the rattling of covers ... A kitchen band.
But! The light flares up, and the kitchen turns into a small podium on which our heroines circle in a dance: Suzanne, Patricia, Leon, Pamela, Ermelina, Madame Ortans, Monsieur Leon. And maybe Nina, Masha, Vera Petrovna, Sergei Nikolaevich ...
There are no forks, knives, pots, aprons. Bows, lace collars, roses in buttonholes. The scene in the cafe of the sanatorium for gastric patients becomes the scene of events. But conversations remain the same, and French is so similar to Russian ...
And music? .. Endless dance with countless reprises from which, it seems, not to break out. Violin and Viola, Cello, Double Bass and Piano. Six women and one man. Seven characters in search of an exit. And everyone has a secret that is hidden somewhere deep in the heart. Mystery is sad, ridiculous, terrible, sensual, funny ...
But there is an instant when the mystery opens to the viewer and each character becomes close, understandable and something like us.
The shot cuts off the annoying motive, but does not put an end to it.
The pause is filled with new music, and already the heavenly orchestra plays passionately and tenderly the tango of the immortal Piazzolla.
