Time and me

DEREVO poster by GiperPuper (СВОИ Group)

My third congratulating message for The New Year!

I have felt many different things during my stage practice, but this letter I am writing with heartbeats and with a long forgotten feeling of a childish joy. As if with every letter I uncovered the engine of “Breguet14” and built a bonfire under the bonnet. The morning is sparkling and the sky is awaiting!

DEREVO company performed for the first time in 1988 in Leningrad. Elena Yarovaya, Tanya Khabarova, Dima Tyulpanov, Alexey Merkushev and me. How and why did we meet — nobody of us could ever explain.

I was 29 years old.

Half of my life I have spent on stage performing in front of people.
But there is one life. And one World.
18th November 2018, in Dresden, I have stepped on stage as an actor and director of DEREVO company for the last time. From 2019 onwards, DEREVO will function as a “production company”, “DEREVO presents”. I will help actors to create new shows and when possible, present them on stages of the world

Thirty years of a long road. An astonishing, happy, unpredictable one.

Thirty years of living a Fairytale.

The name DEREVO should stay in this untouchable and unreachable fairytale.

What’s next? Don’t know yet. Freedom, smile… Performances? Cinema? Guitar? Photography? Directing? A book?..

Let’s see. However, it will be no longer DEREVO, but me – Anton Adasinskiy – with everything that I would still like to transmit to people. And with everyone who feels passionate towards both worlds and despises laziness.

And a school. I will apply my all efforts to found my own school. People, who are interested in the principles of DEREVO’s work, must receive the knowledge at first hand. And not let it drop.

I don’t hide myself behind the waterfall pressing my body against a wet rock. I am nearby.

About four hundred people worked and performed with me during these wonderful years. A low bow to all of them!

Of course, I would be unspeakably glad if six well-fit, bald recruits would knock on my eyes and would want to dance “Islands” or “Ketzal” or “La Divina Commedia”. Sure! Let’s do it!

And once again, I would see on stage the same splashes of body quality, cleanness and an uncompromising attitude of artistic intentions as it was in DEREVO.

And now, I wish to all creators, during this time of troubles, to have wonderful shows with fine Romanticism! And Light, Music, Sincerity. And endless faith in the fact that You are making this World better.

Go practice!

Anton Adasinskiy
29th December 2018.
Dresden. Sunrise.

Previous congratulations to the New Year from Anton you’ll find on his Instagram or on DEREVO’s Facebook

Sad news. Chester Mueller passed away

Chester Mueller

 

Sad news.

Our Great Chester Mueller has passed away

He was our manager from 1997 to 2005
We were saying over and over again:
Dear Lord, please send us a manager.
So he entered our lives.

With him and his right-hand Karla Reinartz we were able to dive deep into pure creativity.

He covered our backs:
registered DEREVO as a company
insurances, taxes, permissions, contracts, applications, visa
basic financial aid from the city (institutionelle Förderung)..

Our Creative Bases have become possible through him
First the Laboratory and then, from 2003 till now, the studio in the Festspielhaus Hellerau.

We don’t know what happened.
We know that we miss him.

Anton Adasinsky / DEREVO

Dear friends,

right now and rather urgently Anton Adasinsky & DEREVO are looking for a long-term support from a native speaker (English) to either translate Anton’s texts directly from Russian or proof-read / edit our own translations.

Requirements:

  • an interest in the DEREVO’s style / way of life
  • experience in working with literary and artistic texts or poetry
  • high availability on-line

As you can see, there’s not so much work but if there’s any it’s urgent. It’s mostly for this web-site.

A voluntary collaboration is very welcome (some bonuses are possible when visiting DEREVO shows). However, if there are any interested professionals around, the terms can be discussed at any time.

As soon as you can help us with this matter, there will be the next issues of Anton’s NOW.

 


 

Please e-mail your suggestions to Daniel, DEREVO’s web-master at rus@derevo.org

Thank you!

DEREVO

We are working on the WHITE FORTRESS project again. At the beautiful pond in the historical city centre in Dresden. After the last year’s success they asked us to repeat the open-air action. It was far too easy to persuade us in this case.

Usually the work on a show is a process closed for the public. But the weather and the mood are too good to keep anything secret.

In the next days we will share some impressions with you here.

On and In the Water:

  • Anton Adasinsky
  • Lena Yarovaya
  • Pavel Semchenko (AKHE)
  • Andrey Sizintsev (AKHE)
  • Alisa Oleynik
  • Maxim Kuznetsov
  • Lidiya Makeeva
  • Lidiya Kopina
  • Tatyana Belousova
  • Valentin Tzin
  • Alexey Lanskoy
  • Nastya Ponomareva

The crew

  • Daniel Williams: Sound
  • Steffen Köhler: Technical direction
  • Falk Dittrich: Light
  • Igor Fomin: Light for floating objects
  • Isolde Matkey: Management
  • and many assistants: everything that wouldn’t be possible without them

 


 

So here is the Day 1.
