Maple Garden - Provincial Dances Theatre

Yekaterinburg Theatre for Young Audiences

"The piece by Tatiana Baganova commissioned by the American Dance Festival in Durham (USA), is American. Pulled from mouth to mouth, it binds a male and a female dancers. Suddenly, a third figure appears and cuts up the gum with a huge pair of scissors. Chewing gum as a symbol for radical separations in this “never-never land”, a wondrous kingdom. A witch sits on a tree and swings on a long rope over the stage. The women wear crinolines, a young man wears a vest, studded with thorns. Everything dances slowly, like in a fairy tale or a dream." (Source: Ballet International Tanz Aktuelle)

The Russian version of the production was awarded the Golden Mask award (Best Choreographer's Work and Best Set and Costume Design). Maple Garden toured the United States, Thailand, Germany, Sweden, Italy, Poland, Lithuania, and Belarus, as well as 16 cities in Russia.

Les Noces (Svadebka) - Provincial Dances Theatre

Yekaterinburg Theatre for Young Audiences

Les Noces by Tatiana Baganova is a prize-winner of the Russian National Theatre Award Golden Mask – 2000 (Best Choreographer's Work). The piece is based on Igor Stravinsky's work, which he himself described as “Russian choreographic scene with singing and music”. Structure of the performance is organised around the old rite of Northern Slavic tribes telling about the bridegroom, who must cut the bride’s braid – the symbol of women’s power – by himself.

"The First Prize belongs to Provincial Dances. Tatiana Baganova, the choreographer, gives her own version to Stravinsky. Stravinsky’s power, according to the music, is a search for an adequate power in the ancient ceremony. The characters wear sackcloth. They feel free in Stravinsky’s polyphony where they can both stick to certain rules and break them. Sharp needle of Baganova’s plastics are microcosm, her concept is a sort of paganism which means one can already resist the crowd." (Source: Nezavisimaya Gazeta)

The performance is based on the play by the British playwright Caryl Churchill. The spectators find themselves inside the extravagant, paradoxical reality, which they will have to figure out during the performance and set their own priorities. Based on the example of what seems to be far, spectators will have a look at what is close at hand.

Our nature is such that we are most worried about things happening around us. But should we not worry about things that are less close? This show is about things that take place far away.

The building of the cinema "Colosseum" is one of the most interesting sights of Yekaterinburg: it was in this building that the first city theatre and cinema was located. Initially, the city theater in Yekaterinburg operated from 1843 to 1912 in a wooden building. In 1845, a stone building was built for the theater according to the design of architect K. G. Tursky. The funds for the construction were collected by the Yekaterinburg merchants. In November 1896, the first cinema session in Yekaterinburg was held here. A year later, representatives of the Lumière brothers came here, who gave nine sessions, which conquered the public. In 1914, the theater was renamed to "Colosseum", existing as a cinema to this day. After the revolution, the "Colosseum" is renamed to the "October" cinema. The former name was returned only in 2002, when Kinomax opened a cinema here.

In 2010, it opened the Young Theatre studio to implement on stage the newest ideas. Since 2011, the troupe also in­cludes the TantsTeatr dance company. All three creatively independent teams delight spectators with independent and joint productions. The theatre's stage is often used for guest performances by well-known troupes from Moscow and Saint-Petersburg. (Source: http://tourism.ekburg.ru/en/theatre/)

Actors' House is the Sverdlovsk department of the Theatre Union of the Russian Federation and is one of the cultural centers that gathers within its walls not only the theatrical community of the city and entire region, but also all fans of theatrical art. A number of creative programs function here on a regular basis, including the Open Stage Project.

Actors' House occupies a renovated historic mansion that previously belonged to a gold mine owner Stepan Tu-pikov. The mansion was built in 1890 by architect Dyutel. The estate now consists of four surviving buildings: the main house, an outbuilding, one-storey shop and warehouse, all surrounded with a fence with massive brick gate. To remind of the mansions original owners, the culture center annually holds a "New Years Show at Tupikova's" — a 19th century home style party for children during winter holidays.

Sinara Centre

A.T.C.B.P. is an allusion to some famous performances made in the 1990s in Russia. This is a study on performance and its meaning in various contexts.

Artists have always challenged not only the traditions of art, but also social norms, moral principles, all in order to achieve a new aesthetic level.

The Performance A.T.C.B.P. is another challenge of the author and choreographer Ilya Manylov for himself. By placing himself in a tight framework of working at the limit of his capacity, the choreographer is trying to expand the boundaries of his artistic capabilities. He wants to tell the old story in a new language, where dance is just one of the various means of expression.

Rethinking performative experience in the Russian art of the 1990s, the artist demonstrates an attitude, often ironic, towards the postmodern era. His task is to push the audience towards unconventional thinking, sensory perception, to stimulate them to abandon the habit of analysing everything.

Don Quixote is about dreams, fantasies, subtle game. The characters of the Miguel de Cervantes’ book have long existed as mythological figures, known by everyone, regardless of one’s acquaintance with the original source.
The main emphasis in the performance is made on the creation and construction of visual effects: puppets of different size and technique, complex mechanical structures and sets, special lighting. Stories of love, friendship, war and death are told in different chapters. 

The production was awarded the GRAND PRIX at the IX International Puppet Theatre Festival "Petrushka the Great" and nominated for the Golden Mask National Theatre Award 2019 in two nominations: Puppetry / Best Production and Puppetry / Best Stage Design.

In its 5th edition, the Ural Biennial explores concepts behind the Immortality, both secular and sacred; it is seen as a powerful utopist idea, as technocratic obscurity, as a symbolic tool and as a condition which might cause evident ethical schisms.

Kolyada Theatre

Alexander Griboyedov’s classic play about the confrontation between the old, conservative “famusian” society and the young, progressive Chatsky turned into a mystical, but very vivid picture of nowadays Russia.

The main and most catchy detail of the production’s scenery is the widely spread on the Russian Internet character called “Zhdoon” (the one who waits) – originally Homunculus Loxodontus, a statue by Dutch artist Margriet van Breevoort.

Fifty “zhdoons” on stage are carried in the arms like children, get jewellery on, are prayed to and serve as a means of communication. The reason why the people in Russia became so fond of Margriet van Breevoort ‘s character is probably that Russians are always waiting for something: changes for the better, happiness, sun, good weather ... What are we not waiting for and what are we not hoping for?!

The show is full of songs and dances, it’s easy and fun to watch. But behind all this rollicking fun lies a serious question about the essence of the Russian human being, about the “mysterious Russian soul”, about our inaction, silence, disorder, idleness. After all, so often we say to ourselves: “Why change something? I'll just sit tight and wait”.  And if at the beginning of the play Zhdoon moves the spectator, makes one laugh, then gradually, towards the end, this image grows into a horrifying character that makes one cry. And the most important thing is to get better, to distance oneself from Zhdoon, to have nothing in common with him and oneself.

Alexander Griboyedov’s classic play about the confrontation between the old, conservative “famusian” society and the young, progressive Chatsky turned into a mystical, but very vivid picture of nowadays Russia.

The Little Mermaid - Roman Feodori, suivi par un Q & R

Theatre for Young Audiences

Andersen's tale Little Mermaid seems to have been known to everyone since childhood. But if you carefully re-read the authentic Andersen’s text, the familiar childhood fairy tale gets another sound.

Why was the Little Mermaid so drawn to the earthly world even before she met her Prince? Why was she so sure that she would love the people living there? What was the reason she was ready to give her hundreds of years for one day to be a human? And was the Little Mermaid’s love so unhappy, although it brought her a lot of heartache? Together with the audience, the authors of the show will try to answer these questions in order to understand the price for the tears, which Little Mermaid felt for the first time at the end of the show (although, as you know, mermaids cannot cry).

The audience will see true magic of Andersen's fairy tale, it’ll be real, poetic, spectacular. While music and choreography will turn the performance into a mysterious parable that will not leave indifferent neither children nor adults.

Come on, Lautreamont! is a synthesis of video, original electronic music and contemporary dance. The performance explores the landmark for the history of art text The Songs of Maldoror by Comte De Lautreamont, which was written in the 19th century and influenced the avant-garde movements of the early 20th century to become the forerunner of surrealism.

King Lear - Inclusion.School.Yekaterinburg.

Yeltsin Center

Machiavelli said: «It’s the retinue that makes the king». In the performance of the drama studio Inclusion.School.Yekaterinburg, courtiers tell a well known Shakespeare’s story. Lear’s whim, who is tired of ruling and decided to divide his kingdom, turns into a tragedy. The solemn rhythm of the procession in honour of the King turns into a military cannonade in the struggle for power, when mental blindness is worse than physical blindness.

The production is a laureate of the III Inclusive Art International Festival in the category Theatre Art.
