We have already talked about the theater laboratory “Electrification” held in January in the Novokuznetsk Drama Theater — and today is the premiere that grew out of this project.
The story of Andrei Platonov “Cow” on the Small Stage was staged by Angelina Migranova and Rodion Sabirov. Together with the artists — Andrei Kovzel, Ilona Litvinenko and their son Vladimir — for a long time they explored and worked out the feelings of loss, expectation, ignorance, the collision of life and death embedded in the story.
Even before its premiere, the performance — according to the results of the sketch at the laboratory — was already invited to the poster of the XI Platonic Art Festival: screenings in Voronezh will be held on June 12 and 13.
Today, the Tomsk Theater of Young Spectators celebrates its birthday!
41 years ago, on this day, the premiere of the first performance took place — “Blue Horses on the Red Grass” based on the play by Mikhail Shatrov, from which the theater counts. The Youth Theater could not celebrate its “round” birthday last year, so today, we hope, the theater will be able to do this with double joy.
Access to the online screening of the premiere documentary film by Honored Artist Yulia Ratomskaya, dedicated to the history of the theater, has already been opened. And tomorrow in the lobby of the Youth Theater there will be a reading of the very play with which it all began. Director Dmitry Gomzyakov called this event “Next: Reading. S.K.N.K.T. “and occupied in it some of the actors who played in the first performance of the theater — the reading will be part of the large performance-project” Next, "which is scheduled for premiere in late April.
The Novosibirsk Academic Drama Theater “Red Torch” steadfastly survived last year’s blow, when all the anniversary celebrations, the preparation of which was spent a lot of effort and resources, had to be canceled due to the pandemic. And today — already on its 101st birthday — “Red Torch” will nevertheless present to the audience and guests a documentary performance dedicated to the centuries-old history of the theater.
The name “My” Red Torch “" is very suitable here — in the play, along with facts from the life of the theater, absolutely personal, sincere stories of the actors who make up the modern troupe of the “Red Torch” sound. So — from pieces, puzzles, passages, monologues — a confession of love grows to the theater that I want to say “mine.”
Exclusive screenings of the performance of Timofey Kulyabin, created on the basis of a specially written play by Olga Fedyanina, will take place on April 15 and 16 — happy birthday, my Red Torch!
The story of Boris Vakhtin “One Absolutely Happy Village” in the theater world thundered in 2000, when Pyotr Fomenko released the play and today is going on with full houses. The chief director of the Novosibirsk Academic Youth Theater “Globe” Alexei Kriklivy tried to get away from the famous production as much as possible and present his version of the story, in which a romantic story unfolds in the outlandish space of the Russian village, where even Scarecrow and Kolodets share thoughts about life and love, war and peace.
“The text is fantastic. It is so energetically charged that it is impossible not to connect to it, “says Alexei Kriklivy. — This is a great professional test for me. It seems that nothing was more difficult in my practice. I recycle this story every day and can’t be satisfied. The text is so multi-level, I so want to multistage this not to destroy, find the right move. Vakhtin combines biblical, pagan, mystical. But in the center, of course, the struggle for human happiness. ”
For various reasons, the premiere was postponed several times, but on April 14 and 15, Novosibirsk will finally see “One Absolutely Happy Village,” after which the show is expected only on May 24.
We cannot but note that today, as part of the National Theater Award and the Golden Mask festival, two performances participating in the Novo-Siberian Transit competition poster will be shown at once!
Just a few hours remains until the first show of the production of Sergei Levitsky based on the story of Yevgeny Zamyatin »Flood.« The performance of the Russian Drama Theater named after N.A. Bestuzhev was announced at the Mask in five nominations, and, as the Minister of Culture of Buryatia Soelma Dagaeva noted, »for us to enter the Golden Mask competition program is already a victory and a huge achievement for the region.« Representatives of the theater also agree with her, telling the creative group of the performance: »For the first time in its
In the evening, another screening of »Floods« will take place, and in parallel, the performance of the Sharypovo City Drama Theater »I Hired a Killer« will go on the CIM site. The production of Galina Saltzman according to the script of Aki Kaurismäki is announced at the Mask in six nominations.
At the festival »New Siberian Transit« »Flood« and »I hired a killer« will be shown on May 20 and 24, respectively.
Tales for adults, alas, too often look like reality. Eugene Schwartz’s plays, based on the fabulous stories of Hans Christian Andersen, will confirm this idea best. Once they were censored, now they are increasingly penetrating the theater scenes — and today the Chelyabinsk Drama Theater named after Naum Orlov presents its version of “Shadow.”
What happens if our shadow, our dark side, lives its own life? As soon as secret desires or external temptations disturb the balance of Black and White, Shadow and Light, a process of destruction begins in man. And a titanic effort must be made to restore the lost harmony.
Director Yakov Lomkin staged “Shadow” as fantasy — grotesque, ironic, visually spectacular, similar to carnival aesthetics. On April 10 and 25, viewers will plunge into this element and plunge into the shadow sides of human nature.
Pre-premiere fever swept today the Yekaterinburg Theater of Young Spectators — one day remains before entering the Small Stage of the play “Marriage.” Director — artistic director of the Youth Theater — Grigory Lifanov did not argue with the author and retained the genre designated by Nikolai Gogol — “a completely incredible event.” The artists also tried not to change the Gogol spirit: “a little fabulous atmosphere” was embodied by the stage designer Natalya Mos, and the tailors recreated crinolins, fracas and cylinders under the direction of Niki Bragina.
Under the seemingly comical plot lies a deep and squeaky story about loneliness, unfulfilled hopes and defenselessness in the world of other people’s manipulations — and all this sounds as acute as 180 years ago.
The premiere of “Marriage” will be held on April 9 and 10.
The second season to be! And we are not talking about the series, but about the factory of the narrative theater “Discipline.” The Novosibirsk Old House Theater again announced the acceptance of applications from authors who were ready to work on their new plays under the guidance of script teacher Rodion Beletsky and eventually create stories with a fascinating plot and bright modern heroes.
In the second season, the Old House attracted the Moscow Practice Theater, the Kaliningrad Drama Theater and the South Sakhalin Chekhov Center — it was on these stages that the winning plays will be staged. Recall that according to the results of the first season, “Old House” chose the plays “Natasha” by Marina Krapivina and “Inside Out” by Karina Besolti, which will soon enter the repertoire.
The deadline for submitting an application is until April 18, the form and all the details are on the project website.
