HAMLET Story - SAMIThe SAMi project (Commonwealth of Actors, Musicians and ...) does not need advertising! As soon as they announce the date of the performance, tickets are sold out in a matter of days! And the other day, on March 10, on the stage of the Svetlanov Hall in the House of Music again "HAMLET Story" Back in October, we watched this production in an unusual club version (which was realized due to the current conditions and is unlikely to be repeated) and shot a video about it! Director Natalya Semyonova, actors Alexei Kravchenko and Sergei Chonishvili tell us about modern Hamlets and the search for an answer to the eternal question.
In Moscow, there are places that can be called "Bulgakov": here the writer lived and worked, funny stories happened to him there. But especially the interests of those locations, which placed the author of the heroes of the novel "The Master and Margarita."
In places that played an important role in the life of Mikhail Bulgakov, and in those places that are noted in the novel, the guests of the excursion will be lucky with the retro tram "302-BIS". If you dive into the past, if you dive headlong into the world of the Bulgakov novel, then only on such a tram - stylish, beautiful. Such a tram - like an echo of the past times, missed several decades, which passed unnoticed.
But Moscow, undoubtedly, has changed. What did Bulgakov's contemporaries and the author of the "Master and Margarita" see? ..
All, all, all - this is who do you think? Maybe Cova, Donkey Eeyore and Piglet? Or maybe it's Robin's family and friends?
Mom is so similar to the pink Piglet, Dad - to the very Winnie the Pooh, eternally sad uncle - the spitting donkey Eeyore, and the grandmother - the same wise as the owl.
Here they are, all the time, each has his own habits and character.
With them it is not easy, and not always they get on peacefully, but in the end they still find a common language, because together they form a small but important world.
Who would Vinnie be without his friends-buddies? How sad and lonely it would be for Robin to live without his relatives!
The beginning of the twentieth century. In theatrical studio the play of the unknown author "Venetian" is rehearsed. Not a modern one, but an old play written in the sixteenth century.
The aesthetics of the Art Nouveau era, which broke into art in the twentieth century, must somehow get along with a story told at a different time and place. How to combine what seems incompatible? ..
So they looked for new theatrical principles, so they developed innovative moves and techniques, so they came up with a new stage language for the theater's coryphaeus, which is dedicated to this performance: Vsevolod Meyerhold, Kazimir Malevich, Konstantin Melnikov, Roman Viktyuk.
The troupe rehearses. Creative people argue about the principles of theater. New and old interact, giving birth to unexpected director's moves and combinations. What kind of play will come out as a result? Unknown. So far they are probing the soil, preparing. Looking for among the flooded avant-garde means and opportunities to say and express their own. And be sure to find.
It's hard to marry.
And if the "vterpezh", but forcefully try? Try to explain to your mother that you do not love this person. That you love another.
But there is no dowry, the suitors too. So you have to go out for the first one. The only one caught.
One such was found, to whom money is not needed. He was captivated by romances and a languid sad look.
Before it there is a hard choice. To go on about society? So that my mother was calm? And live your whole life with an unloved person.
Or run, run without looking back to your beloved? And burn the rest with a blue flame. Happiness will not follow you. Behind him it is necessary to run.
If you know what troubles can follow! If you knew ... it's better to hang yourself right away. Or rush from the cliff into the river.
I was looking for love - I could not find it. Beloved was a traitor. I was addicted, as with a toy, and threw it out.
So there is no love in the world. There is nothing to look for.
But every thing must have its master. Is it not such a bad role? Moreover, the size of the content would have silenced any vigilantes of morality.
This is the order - in love you have to cry. Mandatory to the woman. Oh, of course, not a man.
This is the terrible word "husband".
Scary reality was brought out in his play by Martin McDonagh! The main character did not just lose his hand (it happened a long time ago when he was quite young). He is obsessed with the idea of regaining his missing hand!
Is it possible? Hardly. But probably another: someone may want to cash in on the hero's dream, on his suffering. So, the guy with the girl stole one hand from the museum - and they try to sell it to one-armed. What will come of this?
Fires of military roads. They can burn your soul to the ground.
There is a grief that can not be experienced.
The mother of adult twin children asks them to go to Lebanon, to her homeland and find a father and an older brother. They never saw their relatives.
Brother and sister fulfill the last will of the mother.
But they could not even imagine how many troubles had to be experienced by their mother.
She was a Muslim, she lived in a small village. The only one of all my relatives learned to read and write.
In the second third of the twentieth century in the Middle East raging war. She gave birth to the first son in prison, quite young. He was taken from her. All the searches for the child were in vain.
Horrors of war haunted her. After many years, she again went to jail. Loud sang in the cell to drown out the screams of those who were tortured by the villains. She was raped by a jailer who turned out to be her eldest son.
Is he the father of twins?
Passion in this performance reaches the level of the ancient Greek tragedy.
The dark past keeps terrible secrets. Do not try to look into hell.
Death to her was the only salvation.
Poor, poor Anna ...
Women are such creatures that, as long as they are not studied, there is always a surprise. Even for her.
Husband, son, position in society. All this is meaningless when it appears. Something insolent was in her clothes and gait. And he flashed a poisonous gleam in his eyes and took her far, far away.
A thief, a thief ... Stole it from the family, from relatives. She stole her heart from her. Shame and disgrace. There is no road back.
The fire of passion flared instantly. But in this world prejudices and stereotypes rule. What choice will she make between her family and her love? After all, it seems that only now she began to really live.
She met him at the station. Someone's devilish eyes snatched the look from the crowd. But the circle will close. The story, which began with the railway, will end there.
This is not love - it's a sure death. Death. Dead sleep, nightmares ... A terrible old man, all in black oil, clattering and screeching on the rails.
In all this wonderful smile is to blame.
Another Gogol ... Lyrical, poetic, heartfelt ... Do not expect from this performance of catchy satirical revelations and scourging the flaws of thievish officials. It's about something else.
Preserved memories of contemporaries that Gogol conceived the image of Khlestakov as an unrestrained dreamer, a gentle dreamer, almost a poet. This lyrical intonation dominates the play.
The capitalist swindler gets into the confidence of provincial officials, "dear people" as he calls them, and shamelessly deceives them. But in this play, the tender history of Khlestakov's heartfelt affection for the daughter of the mayor soon comes to the fore.
The simple-minded inhabitants of the distant town rather do not cause laughter, but sincere sympathy for their sincere desire to please the metropolitan guest.
The actors of the theater play funny and touching. In a magnificent ensemble of ensembles, each completes or shades off the skill of his colleague.
"Oh, how you want to return to the town ..." Gogol, and remember the text of the eternal play, loved from school years.
A louse or not a louse - that's the question.
A man is on the verge of despair. Is capable of anything. And if a person is also smart, this can lead to disastrous consequences.
Poor student. Even a loaf of doctor's sausage is not worth buying. And then there's a bloody callous in front of the account for studying.
And what is so tempting, glitters on the table with fascination? An old family watch. Nominal, engraved. Do chasers become a chance to escape?
The damned usurer turned out to be an avid rubbish. The money offered will not cover any expenses. This is not to be killed at all. One more old woman, one less.
A sharpened ax - here it is a straw for a drowning man. One blow, the second. Rub a puddle of blood, pick up all the jewels. It is done.
To justify the deed, a very convenient theory has already matured. Who said that you can not kill? Everyone is a louse. And the old woman is a louse. Destroy, get out.
One I have the right. Very smoothly comes out. Knowingly received a diploma.
But no crime will go unpunished.
The verdict is announced. You are sentenced to life imprisonment in hell.
Few people believe in good.
He gave you money? So he needs something in return. And we live - you to me, I to you.
Two Soviet travelers were peacefully drinking at the hotel. The vodka is over, there is no money. Here's one of them and shouted out the window. He asked me to help, throw some rubles on drinks.
And a completely unfamiliar man gave them a certain amount.
To take money or to refuse? Strange some guy! They themselves would never have done so.
How will they respond to his noble deed?
And in the next room, such a story happened.
The traveler went to a young neighbor to listen to a sports report about a football match on the radio. After eleven o'clock in the evening, strangers in other people's rooms were forbidden.
Sly employee of the hotel accused the guy of the fact that he wanted to seduce the girl. I hoped to "make a grandma."
Will the traveler find a way out of this delicate situation? He is justified. But no one listens to him.
Wise comedy by Alexander Vampilov about cynics and vulgars, who lived half a century ago.
"No matter what you say, and similar incidents happen on earth - rarely, but they happen."
Split personality ... Is it possible? Can an angel become a devil? Will good wins evil?

And the road leads Jekyll ever further ... Into the abyss?
