Dear friends,

Right next there’s a premiere of Ana Sokolović’s Svadba (wedding) at the Dyagilev Festival in Perm.

There’s no more tickets available whatsoever, for ever and ever

Why one would need to get married?

Tick the correct answer for you (a maximum of two checkboxes)

• Combine life paths (obsolete)
• Combine capital
• Combine glory
• Continuation of the species
• It’s time
• Registration
• Love
• Forced by parents
• The land question (bargaining for half a kingdom)
• Acceptance
• Lets do it!
• Other

There are stereotypes of social behavior, passionately hated by me.

In different cultures and peoples, the wedding is perceived in different ways.

Somewhere it is a festival, somewhere - the end of life, somewhere just a business agreement.
Somewhere polygamy, somewhere monogamy, somewhere monochrome, somewhere - three in one. With leaky laws, you can marry the deceased or marry a cat.
The whole story.

The Serbian version by Ana Sokolović is just one of the lines from this intricate folio.

Perfect in musical form, harmoniously and rhythmically throwing us into a Serbia which is no more, this “capella” work contains few words, which is how it should be in the forms of rituals, tunes, dialects, lamentations.

Music itself is an inviolable Cosmos. But one day someone could not resist and shoved the word “meaning” into it.

Opera is one of the well-aged heirs of this error.

And it took me into two worlds.

The first - domestic: the story of the heroine and her girlfriends. A history of lives.

The other - operatic: there is Music and Voice. It’s another hypostasis, emasculated.

A history of symbols, it also has the right to exist, but without the first world, is uninteresting.

For a long time I’ve practiced the stage arts, but still haven’t decided for myself what the relationship between man and the theatre is. The combination of reality and unreality is what interests me. And this production is another attempt to understand that,

What is art,
What is music,
What is singing,
What is human life.

Sokolovich’s “Wedding” - a hymn to the hopes of Women.
But they don’t come true for her.

And in a small two-story greenhouse, time will get intertwined.
Above - Notes, Throats and the anguish of operatic powder, searching to become natural.
Below - the same thing, but running on the crooked tracks of time, our lives.
From the sweaty phone booth and - “where did you hang out?” - to the marriage trap.

This is a dance of the five gateways of life. Five girls.

Childhood, adolescence, the WEDDING, everyday life and finally … through pots and pans and a belief in the next day - to meet with a gnarled old woman.

“As they say, the story is “set in stone”.

I’m not a director. I’m an actor first of all. And a dancer. In my company, DEREVO, I’m called “colander” because I sift out all kinds of rubbish, leaving only the best.

And it’s not so important that the viewer understands me literally.

It is important that during the rehearsals something happened in the girls and singers, and they remember this time.

The rest is on stage.

Anton

In June 2017 Anton Adasinsky with the Students of his «DEREVO School on Wheels» are to perform a big series of open-air actions at the AVANTGARDENS Festival in St. Petersburg

 

June 9th
“OKSTIS”

Dance action dedicated to stubbornness, a split personality and the heavenly bastards.
Music - Vladimir Volkov (double bass, voice)

June 10th
“HARAM”

We are told there
We are told we must
We are told we cannot speak
We are told
Don’t you dare
On the wall there is a fist
Youth has no dusty memorial

June 11th
“WARM-BLOODED”

This dance is about muscles, joints, pulse and blush, about shoulders and hugs, coughing and laughing, wince and desire. And the fact that the body’s language is still not available to us.

June 16th
“OVARY”

You are a donor and a vampire
Mother and father
Finger and ring
Cheek and slap in the face
God and the Devil
You are always two
This is the madness of the Force
Let it sparkle!

June 17th
“SNAKE TIME”

I am the king of nature, I am a man
I feel like I can’t stay sitting
We must create, sell, buy, break and build
I am the master of the illusion of activity
All grief and bubbling
And only after dinner will I calm down for an hour, digesting like a coiled snake hat
And, having drunk a cup of tea, I will stop the War

June 17th
Live concert of the AVIA & Anton Adasinsky

In August 2017 Anton Adasinsky premieres his LAST CLOWN ON EARTH at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe at Pleasance One.
