Cool “ the Seagull “That only did not do with “ the Seagull “ to transform into the actual play. Any time back, say, at Finn Christian Smedsa Treplev witty cut the killed bird for bloody beefsteaks and threw to spectators. And more recently, in “ the Satyricon “ Yury Butusov has made “ the Seagull “ where was two Trepleva, three Ninas, statement reminded a monologue of a world soul - talented symbols much, and symmetry is not present.
Konstantin Bogomolov, known theatrical michurinets, before moving heroes of the novel “ Fathers and children “ on the Soviet nomenclature summer residences, crossing characters dovlatovskogo “ Reserve “ with heroes kerrollovskoj “ Alisy “ has adhered “ the Seagull “ by outer space exploration times. That is to Khruschev`s thaw: Action begins to year in 58 - m, and comes to an end after Gagarin`s flight - the old TV endlessly broadcasts stories of the first cosmonaut. In writer Trigorine it is possible to suspect the adherent of a socialist realism, and of Koste Trepleve - the future Daniel or Sinjavsky. Through a thaw time, the further, the more strongly, looks through day today`s. Crackling plates with Lyudmila Zykinoj`s songs alternate with “ Sentries of love “ Okudzhavy, camp songs of Galich in modern execution, and Treplev, taking a guitar, sings “ Autumn “ Shevchyuk.
the drawing room in Sorin`s manor reminds a teacher`s room, on the occasion of summer repair filled by old furniture - tables with the turned chairs, grey walls, state light more. The back wall is not present - the room comes to an end frightening failure. The wall with zareshechennym a window, doing space closer, will go down for the first time instead of a curtain in performance of Trepleva, and in the ending will shake, as if the house here - here will collapse. In a prologue offstage schoolboys as if the magical lake has turned to a children`s beach sonorously shout. Masha (Yana Sekste) though tries to smoke, coquetting with teacher Medvedenko (Alexey Komashko), still wears a brown dress with an apron.
however, on an action course all these signs of a place and time, old songs alternately with new, start to seem usual kapustnikom. “ performance will soon begin! “ - Masha explains to spectators, meaning an opus of Trepleva, - the hall in the answer joyfully laughs loudly. Under a storm of applause leave Oleg Tabakov, Marina Zudin, Konstantin Habensky. All three enter intentionally ironic relations with the characters: Doctor Dorn, that is Oleg Tabakov, at first even, apparently, is perplexed, why the actor Habensky (Trigorin) embraces Marina Zudin (Arkadina). And the hall has fun with all the heart - so successfully Chekhovian remarks are projected on the biography of executors. When Dorn wounded by the remark of Medvedenko about the ostensibly saved condition, throws: “ Money? For thirty years of practice... It was possible to save only two thousand “ public fades, having remembered well-known financial trial. On such “ cabbage “ a background other actors and their characters fade into the background. An exception - Sorin: Sergey Sosnovsky masterly plays the small employee, a threshold of an old age greedy making up for the missed life. During time pjanki and dances in “ a teacher`s room “ it suddenly stares hard at public, goes down in a hall and pulls out to dance any confused spectator. Nina Zarechnaja - the student 5 does not become flustered also - go a course of the HOST Yana Osipov plays the debutant in every way aspiring in the world of success. And its some similarity to young Olga Knipper`s portraits only adds to a scandalousness invention: in the fourth certificate Nina is to Koste, straight off does a cocaine path, and after lays down on a table in an invocatory pose.
why Kostja refuses to it affinity and climbs to be shot at a wardrobe, it is possible to treat on - to a miscellaneous. The matter is that to the ending the critical weight gegov definitively gets the best. The hall so is adjusted to laugh that does not react almost on on - to the present the bitter ending. However, can, the director of that and wanted: it put performance not about thaw times, and about today`s academic theatre in which the talented debutant only and needs what to be shot, choking among platitude and old rags.
