About event

A mono performance based on the play CLIM "The Girl with Matches"

Director - Vladislav Troitsky
In the title role - Elena Lesnikova

...when the girl decides to light matches,
it uses these resources not for action,
but for fantasy...
Clarissa Pinkola Estes, "Running with wolves"

"A girl with matches" is a reflection in a length of one hundred minutes. The task is to explain what theater and actor are, on a box of matches. To recount the contents of the play without the required box is not easy. For the author, it was probably a super-task to write a woman's play, once again remember death and that life is finite, intermittent, "bezchastna", that it has many sufferings, dreams, sensations, a global misunderstanding of oneself. And to be yourself is the most strange and unclaimed art.

"Lesnikova's voice is beautiful. The play takes place in complete darkness, so it is the voice that can be fully appreciated. At least understand how the blind fall in love. In it there is no shadow of recitation, with it all the time you want to speak directly during the performance. Start explaining and disagreeing, scolding for stupidity or remembering similar cases of their life. Unfortunately, the format of the play did not imply excessive talkativeness of the viewer", - S. Vorontsov.

Performance in Russian.
