Театр.doc after a series of assaults and crossings found refuge in one of the cellars in the Small state lane. Despite the summer heat and the holiday period with intense life. I have just completed the festival-laboratory “July. doc, where during the week I read old plays. Visited him and the artist-actionist Peter Pavlensky.

Theatre artistic Director Mikhail Ugarov in the last day of the festival personally read British play written 20 years ago by David Harrower “Knives in hens”. 50 the author now, but a rich theatrical history of his plays there. Mikhail Ugarov suggested that it is more suitable for reading. There are works that are difficult or even impossible to deliver. The play was sent from a friendly London theatre Royal Court specifically translated it into Russian language. In Театре.doc read it from the sheet located on the chairs in front of the audience, the actors – Anastasia Slonina, Igor Stam and Eugene kilometers. A surprising, but logical. Becoming a Director, removing fresh in spirit movie “read, Read” (he award of the Gatchina film festival “Literature and cinema”), where he experimented with text, Eugene kilometers admitted that he misses the theatre. In Театре.doc he got Miller. Two men with names and one unnamed woman are quite mundane, earthly dialogue about livestock, grain and flour, but many guess words that the other head will never come.
Why do we accept this reading, like the previous one? Why the whole week was stirring the pages written not now, but in 1998 – 2003. Among the authors – Mikhail Ugarov, Michael Kurochkin, Ivan Vyrypaev, Elena Gremina, Mikhail Durnenkov. Sometimes even the inspirer of the action Mikhail Ugarov did not know that will be read tomorrow. Many were born spontaneously, was from the actors, naturalchica on known or new plays. Similar events are held for professionals. Then their goal is clear. And then apart from a few actors, the audience gathers the most diverse and even random. Almost each Express themselves. Some guy spent the entire reading with a half-eaten Apple on a stick (almost a knife in the Apple, as in chickens). Someone had a NAP and began to snore at the feet of the actors. A small room Packed to capacity. Young girl sitting on the floor and the stairs, probably dreaming about the scene. After the read-through is a long discussion, participate in the actors, looking at the light theatre Director Vasily Senin, a member of the writers ‘ Union, which, according to him, full in the hall. Everything is done to attract a new audience, find projects for repertoire. And are invited to dialogue Directors and actors, not Directors and not actors, all of whom have something to say this summer. But our people always have something to say, even in summer, even in winter.
In September, the theatre will host a joint with Petr Pavlensky action in which the artist will participate actors. The performance will be based, apparently, on those events which we have recently become, – from the “performance” on the red square to the pavement which Pavlensky nailed himself to follow his ordeal on law enforcement organizations.Related posts:
