In special labor impulse in these days the lives of Stanislavsky Electrotheatre. Not in the evening, as is customary in other theatres, and from noon until almost midnight there is something called “the Golden ass”. Play don’t wait. For the unexpected and the offense get ready — Boris juhananov brings to the audience a theatre procedure, i.e. shows the process of creating the play as he is. However, from all the traditional terms and concepts, the artist denies long/detached. What happened in the Stanislavsky – observed observer “MK”.

In “the Golden ass” is written on the Internet — shows free. In the early days of idleness may have found a lot of enthusiasts to see and feel something different than traditional theatre (mostly students, lovers of laboratory experiments). Admire or in the end be disappointed with the aforesaid. But random people won’t be here long – it’s a fact. Boris yuhananov (all in black, Raven like a scientist with glasses) makes an introduction for the public.
— The idea of procedural theater I have since I got home from GITIS. I was like an arrow in Luka titans( and I was taught the titans): they bent a bow, tucked me back the arrow and released. But I changed the route. And hit this arrow, as it always happens in fairy tales about Ivan the fool, in a special place, which I then distinguished between procedural art.
Next, the wizard for half an hour (!!!) outlines the basic tenets of the new procedure is pretty hot and exciting, with a lot of smart terms (teleological perspective, structuralia project, induction, deduction, etc.), outstanding in this important theorist.
– Here is the new procedure starts when you want to go out in endless perspective. This can be called the project, launched in evolution. That is, you deliberately brewed the project, which is not and cannot be the end in your own perception of it. You’re going to time travel, which is not and cannot be the end. And thus, with structuralia .
Speaker interesting to listen to, although he is clearly delayed, and the promised “shortly” translates into an hour and a half, why young Actresses and two musicians, charged on stage (artist sit, like a miserable nymph, and the musicians are), clearly fatigued, which could not have affected the work.
And here is the long awaited practice — first six sketches, called modules, from young Directors – in search of the endless from “the Golden ass” Apulia. Exactly at seven o’clock they came down in a composition called why-that “Hairy”. In “the Beaver” all of this happened exclusively in public: played in public, discussed in public, uhananov scolded the actress, she was offended, although tried hard not to show resentment. “Maybe they both agreed,” thought I ( and only I) when uhananov shouted at the audience, and she cheerfully swallowed rough shout.
Procedural theatre in practice on the first day were sometimes interesting, but mostly boring. Look at how one artist at the table discusses with the artist her text, then her interpretation of the text, clever ( and maybe Vice versa?) , but still commanding voice shouting at the audience… well, some pulled into a dream, but the sneers of the neighbours did not allow them to be forgotten in the arms of Morpheus. But there were a few glimpses, and it is nice that the support of the process provided was fair is printed matter, the scenery, the props had finished and professional quality look. And most importantly, search that invokes different thoughts and emotions were still on the territory of art rather than politics, sociality, and other places, art is not involved.
Finally – some theoretical calculations from Boris Yukhananov.
About death: the theater is endowed with a tragic dimension: going to the territory a particular job, we are in death. It surrounds us, penetrates: making the play, we experience his death. From all this my soul struggled with a desperate strength.
About provocations: the unit of measurement of theatre is well-made provocation. Here, for example, a toy soldier himself no one and nothing. But if it is put in front of Lenin’s head or shove the image of Lona Venus, the statement is created, it can generate a variety of meanings.
About the modern artist: why did he songwriter, actor, dancer or choreographer?They are in the essential sense, only prevent him to realize his art form.
Open space “the Golden ass” will continue until 7 may.Related posts:
