Theatre without words

Theatre is among the most common associations with Russia. Stanislavsky – the father of psychological theatre’s is well-known in all parts of the world. Russian theatres still follow classical traditions, which were borrowed and developed by many countries. And when you are in Russia seeing a show is a must.

“Anna Karenina” in the Vakhtangov theatre

The Vakhtangov theatre was created by one of Stanislavski’s students Evgeniy Vakhtangov and has continued the classical traditions of Russian theatre. The number of shows is quite imposing.

The legendary novel Anna Karenina by Lev Tolstoy is now directed in a very original way. “I’m looking for the equivalent of harmony and meaning of the words in the plastic. After all, every move conceals meaning like a word”, says director Angelica Cholina.
Music by Alfred Schnittke helps to reveal the characters of the drama and depth, together with the elegance and ease of feelings which correspond to the amplitude of the novel.

“Demon” in the Ermolova theatre

This mysterious poem written by the great Russian poet and writer M. Lermontov is an eastern story about a mournful demon who falls in love with a young princess Tamara. Whether it is a fight between darkness and light or the scene about the demon who is luring Tamara, everything is is done  by movement and music alone. Racy colours of the Caucasian national dances, the Georgian feast, and the wedding ceremony are only a vivid frame of infinite topics: good and evil.

“Camille” in the Pushkinskiy theatre

The Pushkinsky theatre has been around since 1914 in a building erected at  the end of the 18th century. And it’s been a great Russian theatre for over 100 years.

The well-known classical novel “Camelle”, staged here, was written by Alexander Duma is one of the most known and romantic plots of the 19th century. The director and choreographer of this non verbal show is the same person. The plasticity is always symbolical, and the movement of the body becomes the movement of the soul here. The refined costumes are set  stylized in the spirit of the era and Giuseppe Verdi’s music create an extraordinarily beautiful scenery.

“Shakespeare” in the Gogol-centre

The Gogol-centre is an impressive representative of Russian modern theatre. And “Shakespeare” is mainly a modern dance show. Movements are the major language here and with its help, actors create a special reality for Shakespeare’s characters. They exist without narration and monologues. This show has been made from long-hours improvisation. Each role is a way to demonstrate the inner l Me for the actors.

“Marquez: Without Words” the S.A.D. theatre

Translated in English as the Commonwealth of Drama Actors, every new show is a kind of professional experiment. This show was born when the young actors of the Vakhtangov theatre started working with Gabriel Jose Garcia Marquez’s writings.  It’s about the most expensive and unseen things in a human life, the most happy and unforgettable states. And of course all the stories in the world about love. The main character is a little man.  He already doesn’t remember much, but there’s still something he wants to forget. This story is dedicated to those who came before us and will come after us, but not with us This philosophical parable is told without words, using body language, circus and music.
