The Drama of Russian Political History: System Against Individuality

Real Images : Soviet Cinemas and the Thaw (KINO - The Russian Cinema) * During "the thaw" from Stalins death in 1953 to the late 1960s and Khrushchevs rule, Soviet society experienced major transformations. So did films. In this first comprehensive account of the relationship between politics and cinema in this period, Josephine Woll skillfully interweaves cultural history with film analysis to explore how movies at once responded to the changes around them and helped engender them. She considers dozens of individual films within the context of Khrushchevs policies and the artistic foment they inspired.

Eight Twentieth-Century Russian Plays 0-8101-1374-0 / $ 21.95

Timothy Langen
Justin Weir

Russia produced more notable dramas in the twentieth century than at any other time in its history, yet many of the plays from this period have been only sporadically available in English, and others have never been translated before. For each of these eight works, Timothy Langen and Justin Weir provide an insightful introduction to the literary, cultural, and political contexts in which the plays first appeared, considering the influence that various literary movements had on the development of Russian drama and exploring the effect of the increasingly politicized climate of the new Soviet state.

Notes:

Just finished re-reading Vasily Gippius "Gogol" (Brown University Slavic Reprint I). If it's not translated in English yet, somebody has to do it. It will need an apparatus for non-Russian reader.

Very different from Andrey Bely's book on Gogol, very good, with the detailed analysis of the symbolism.

The Moscow Times website on Thursdays: www.themoscowtimes.com/thebeat -- Theatre News.

We worked with both -- Formal Theatre and Derevo -- and with the permission of John Freedman I post the new from Moscow 2001.

The first controversy of the festival came with the performance of the Derevo, or Tree, Theater of St. Petersburg and Dresden. Its production of "Suicide in Progress," performed in something like a circus ring surrounded on all sides by the audience, drew overflow crowds last Saturday and Sunday but evoked mixed responses. During the polite applause following Sunday's performance, one woman shouted "Bravo!" as large numbers of spectators headed for the exits.

Derevo's genre, one that has brought the group acclaim throughout Europe, is physical theater, a rough mix of dance, mime and drama that, in the end, does not resemble any of those forms. Throughout the 90-minute performance, four actors played out a series of loosely-connected, occasionally mythological, essentially non-verbal scenes depicting people in various states of stress, temptation, confusion and crisis.

One of the best-received scenes was a comic segment parodying traditional theater. A transparent curtain was set up on the circular stage and, as it revolved, simultaneously revealed backstage life and a mock rendition of a melodrama replete with a bunny-like lover, a villain and a suicidal heroine.

Incidentally, the mixed response for "Suicide in Progress" is no indication that Derevo's chances have dimmed for receiving the Innovation award for which it is nominated. Last year, Lev Dodin's production of "Chevengur" received a similar response yet Dodin walked away with the trophy for best director.

On Monday and Tuesday of this week Moscow had its first chance to see a production staged by Andrei Moguchy, one of the most promising directors in St. Petersburg. His dramatization of "School for Fools," the novel by Sasha Sokolov, is a joint production of the Baltiisky Dom and Formalny Theater that uses space and sound to create the effect of a dream state on stage.

Moguchy identifies the genre of his show as "visual associations" and, indeed, he worked intricately with three spatial layers set off by transparent curtains lit from front and back -- including flickering images cast by a film projector. To complete the sensation of an imagined world of fantasy and memory, he added a soundscape that often combined three or four simultaneous tracks of speech, music and noises.

The first casualty of the festival occurred the day before it opened when organizers withdrew the nomination of the Nikolai Ogryzkov School of Contemporary Dance for best modern dance production. A disagreement between choreographer Ulla Gaiges and Ogryzkov as to whose choreography the show primarily represents was not resolved. As a result, the performances, scheduled for last Sunday and Monday, were canceled.

The Golden Mask festival continues through April 8. See the Calendar listings for venues and times. Tel. 755-8335. Daily updated website: www.goldenmask.ru.***

* A History of Russia by Nicholas Valentine Riasanovsky 0195121791 -- Drawing on both primary sources and major interpretive works, the sixth edition of A History of Russia updates its extensive coverage of the social, economic, cultural, political, and military events of Russia's past. It includes a new chapter on the post-Gorbachev era as well as helpful updated bibliographies and reading source lists. Examining the rise of Yeltsin, the nationalities question, and Russia's attempts to adapt to market capitalism, this sixth edition takes the study of Russia straight into the new milennium, continuing the book's nearly forty-year track record as the leader in the field.
