About 40 people follow the man with the yellow Flag through the passages to the East railway station. Not much going on this Monday morning, but the strange procession, whose participants are the only headphones identifiable, caused a sensation. The two foreign-looking men, the group cross to the other players? Brecht's "refugee conversations", originally located at the station lunchroom, from Helsinki, have lost any of their timeliness. The staging of the festival of Arts "The Access Point", 2016 premiered in St. Petersburg, at Berlin's Ostbahnhof scary, because still, the Pass is "the noblest part of a human being", because "he is not so easily made".
The interactive theatre event is part of this year's Brecht-day of the Berlin literary forum. It was two years ago, to the difficult relationship between the Poet and the Soviet Union, should be directed this year, as the Program Manager, Thomas Martin, on the current of Bertolt Brecht's reception in Russia and the situation of the art.
The all-too-rampant start made on Sunday evening, the Translator Olga Fedianina, and the film's Director, Sergio Morabito, the aufrollten under the Motto, "art before the court," the case of the since one and a half years under house arrest, the Russian Director Kirill Serebrennikov. The in particular, for his Opera productions in the German-speaking countries well-known artists, is alleged to have between 2011 and 2014, around 1.8 million euros in state subsidies embezzled. The prosecution is, in view of the productions, submitted by the Director of the Moscow Gogol-center with his production squad, the Seventh Studio on the legs, somewhat absurd, but in the variety of the attacks, which the contemporary Russian art scene is exposed after the short Thaw period under President Medvedev, in the meantime.
The artistic multi-talent Serebrennikov is a particularly prominent example, as he was able, the crusty Russian stage of breaking, and to make the Theater, as Fedianina explains, "for all of the walkable". A variety of examples, it leads with Morabito, the image of violence and the Spielfuror of exceptional theatre and film Director. In "Plasticin", for example, the tragic story about a small-town boy who is driven by their peers in the death, and the figures keep rubber bands on proximity and distance. In the Moscow production of "three penny Opera", the audience suddenly in the game's plot, in Stuttgart's "Salome" doubled Serebrennikov, the staff, and assigns him "epic" features.
the combination of drama, dance, visual art and music, and the festival character of the productions are to be agreed with the classical Russian Repertoire, and provide a gateway for state inspectors. That they have not the power to prevent Serebennikow even under house arrest at the work, took the report Morabito's about the "Così fan tutte"staged at the Zurich Opera house, the Arrestant, although almost entirely non-contact shielded and remotely, with the success realized. "You have to leave the country by the patriots verekeln, this, have," explains Kalle in the "refugee talks", the physicist Ziffel. This is still true today. However, it was a few days ago announced that the investigation documents of the public Prosecutor's office were rejected as "not proof".More about
