The mono-play on the play CLIMA "Girl with matches"
Director - Vladislav Troitsky
Starring - Elena Lesnikov
... when a girl decides to light matches,
it uses its resources not for action,
and for fantasy ...
Clarissa Pinkola Estes, "Running with the Wolves"
“Girl with matches” is a hundred-minute reflection. The task is to explain what theater and actor are like on a match box. It is not easy to convey the meaning of a play without a box. For the author, it was probably an emergency to write a woman's play, once again mentioning death and the fact that life is over, fragmentary, that it contains a lot of suffering, dreams, feelings, global misunderstanding of itself. And to be yourself is the most amazing and unclaimed art.
“Lesnikov's voice is beautiful. The performance takes place in total darkness, which is why the voice can be fully appreciated. At least understand how the blind fall in love. There is no shadow of recitation in it, with the actress all the time you want to speak right during the performance. Start explaining and disagreeing, scolding for nonsense, or remembering similar instances of their lives. Unfortunately, the format of the play did not imply unnecessary talkativeness of the viewer ”, - S. Vorontsov.
