Last events

21 September  ·  Lesosibirsk

Premiere week at the Lesosibirsk Drama Theater “Poisk” — the drama by Henrik Ibsen “A Doll’s House” was released here.

Once they tried to make dolls look like people, but now we ourselves are more and more like dolls. We do not notice that we are turning into automata, repeating the same actions, as if executing a program laid down by someone. What happens if this chain breaks, if a person wakes up from a doll’s life?

Director Mikhail Egorov presented a performance-reflection on the destruction of illusions and an honest dialogue, revealed through the physics and physicality of the actors. The viewer becomes an X-ray of family relations in a sterile space.

The premiere screenings took place on September 17-19, the second block will take place on September 24, 25 and 26.

17 September  ·  Norilsk

The Norilsk Polar Drama Theater named after Vladimir Mayakovsky is on the verge of opening the season.

Tomorrow, viewers will see the premiere that will end the previous season — “Bloody Wedding” by Federico Garcia Lorca was staged by Sergei Potapov. There is no doubt about the spectacularity and dynamism of this tragedy, because the Yakut director is known for his expressive manner in his work.

There are still some interesting events ahead — the premiere of the comedy based on Mikhail Bulgakov’s play “Mad Jourdain” directed by Alexander Isakov, the laboratory of modern drama “Polyarka” dedicated to Scandinavian plays, and on November 6 a gala evening dedicated to the 80th anniversary of the theater will take place.

May all plans come true — success and victories to you, colleagues!

16 September  ·  Novokuznetsk

Non-binary opens its season Novokuznetsk Drama Theater — today the premiere of Martin McDona’s black comedy “Executioners” will take place here. The play takes place in 1965 in the UK. Harry Wade is the owner of the pub, and at the same time the second best executioner in the country, experiencing the abolition of the death penalty. And now the pub is filled with people who have various motives regarding Harry’s profession.

As the performer of the central role Andrei Kovzel notes, “Executioners” is “a fairly light, seemingly, performance, behind which there is a deep psychological and philosophical work.” Director Yaroslav Rakhmanin confirms that the work was carried out on a large-scale basis, but at the same time emphasizes: “It is important for me that the play be liked by me, artists — generally everyone who is busy in the process, so that everyone cares.”

We hope that the audience will also experience these feelings — the premiere screenings of “Executioners” will be held on September 16 and 17, October 3 and 24.

15 September  ·  Barnaul

The Altai Regional Drama Theater named after Vladimir Shukshin quite often holds a variety of creative laboratories, and September was not without one of them. Last season, the plays of the very first season of 1921-1922 were taken for sketches, and now they have turned to modern drama here, calling the project “PRESENT.”

Now there is a rehearsal process: Peter Nezluchenko is working with Oleg Mikhailov’s play “Oath Maidens,” Dmitry Akimov chose Alexei Zhitkovsky’s Cosmos, and Polina Borodina’s Exodus by Artem Terekhin. Oleg Loevsky leads the project “father” of all directing laboratories.

Sketches will be shown on September 18 and 19, and it is likely that some of the names will be included in the theater’s repertoire.

14 September  ·  Moscow

The festival of young directing «ARTMIGRATION» started in Moscow.

Since 2013, this initiative of the Union of Theater Workers of the Russian Federation has been ongoing, and every year bright performances of young directors working outside Moscow and St. Petersburg come to the capital. This time National Theatre of Karelia, the Buryat drama theater of Hots Namsarayev, the Novosibirsk «First theater», Buinsky state drama theater, the Tyumen Youth theatrical center «Kosmos» and the Theatrical workshop «Subject», the Kazan MOÑ occurred in the poster, and today the audience will see «Gold» of the Prokopyevsk drama theater.

We wish all participants of successful shows!

13 September  ·  Surgut

The performances, postponed due to the pandemic, still continue to appear, and the Surgut Music and Drama Theater opened a new season with such a premiere.

“Treachery and Love” based on the drama by Friedrich Schiller was staged by Antje Weber, head of the acting course at the Ernst Busch Higher School of Performing Arts in Berlin — now she had to direct the final stage online.

The events of Schiller’s play have been carried over from the 18th century to our days — the director believes that the problem of misalliance has not disappeared today, but, on the contrary, has become aggravated: social relations are riddled with inequality. “In Germany, I would probably stage this performance differently, reflecting the realities of this country,” says Antje Weber. “But in any case, we have an actual, very human story — not only for Russia, but for the modern world in general.”

The main characters have to fight for their love not with villains in powdered wigs, but with a whole state corporation.

After the premiere screenings, “Cunning and Love” will go on tour to Khanty-Mansiysk, so it will not be possible to see the performance on the home stage in the coming weeks.

10 September  ·  Barnaul

The novel by British writer Mark Haddon “The Mysterious Night Murder of a Dog”, released in 2003, is still popular in different countries — both among adults and adolescents. The plot revolves around 15-year-old Christopher Boone, a special boy with Asperger’s Syndrome. Starting to investigate the murder of a neighbor’s dog, he moves to find answers to important questions for himself: how to trust people? How to find your place and make your dreams come true?

The novel was soon adapted by Simon Stevens into the play of the same name and began to quite actively fall into the repertoires of theaters. On the eve, the next premiere took place — “The Mysterious Night Murder of a Dog” was staged at the Altai Youth Theater.

“I really hope that the viewer will understand the importance and necessity of the theme of the work and the performance — they are not about autism in fact, but about interpersonal communication,” says director Andrei Vorobyov.

The next screenings of the “equation with two unknowns” will take place in October.

9 September  ·  Novosibirsk

The Novosibirsk Academic Youth Theater “Globus” presents today the first premiere of the season — on the small stage, the chief director Alexei Kriklivy releases the play “The General and His Family”.

Timur Kibirov’s novel, which was the basis, received the Big Book award last year — the author positions it as historical. The action takes place in the 1970s — Major General Vasily Ivanovich Bochazhok is expecting the arrival of his daughter Anna, but he cannot assume that this meeting will put him in front of a difficult choice.

Aleksey Kriklivy believes that Kibirov gave the names to his heroes for a reason: “This should be a historical anecdote. Our stage method is not a parody of reality, but a play joke, comic strip, and sketches. Meaning, in this story, it is important for me that children accept their parents as they are. We must not blame them for our, perhaps not very successful fate, not blame our own failures on the mistakes of upbringing, but try to understand and accept them. ”

The premiere screenings of “The General and His Family” starring the Honored Artist of the Russian Federation Ilya Pankov will be held on September 9 and 10, October 1 and 23.
