DEREVO e-life

NOW - 15.05.2014 - INFERNAL BALL

15. 05. 2014, 01:02 | by DEREVO

For DEREVO this year: five projects
And I’ve pierced them all with a single quill.
I want to talk about the man who writes, creating, with his heart bleeding for humanity.
A cliché, obviously.
But we are DEREVO: if we do something we’ll punch you right between the eyes…
Thanks to you guys who nodded and didn’t say a word.
But it’s like falling from the sky onto bared bayonets, diving into other’s miseries, their destinies and deaths.
And though it looks rather colourful on stage, even merry… we prepare for this show in a different mood.
Thankyou to the Hungarians! When a Hungarian dance begins everything else backs far, far away…
So now I think the answer might be this: stand in a circle, join hands and go round and round dancing…
Till we fall, laughing
Somebody has been born right at this moment!

Adventures of the Golden Egg. The Film

01. 04. 2009, 00:59 | by DEREVO

Video professional Andrey Gladkih looked at the cupboard full of video tapes. Then at the second cupboard. He drank some tequila and looked at the third one.

“Something have to be done with it”, he said.

And from millions of pixels and squares and points he chose right those amazing moments where his mouth fell open or laughter came out or his beard had to be scratched (yes the work took some notable time).

You’re now invited to watch the tangram Adventures of the Golden Egg!

How good it is to sit on a perch under the table and look at the leaves and insects flowing in streams below!

A big creature is stirring beside me, Maxim Isaev.

“and the hormones…”

“oh yes, a harmony of the world…” answers Pasha Semchenko.

Innumerable feet rushing along. There are lots of people, but I can’t see them through the tiny hole in the tablecloth.

I can’t see the Great Northern Bear either, but I know it’s above us. Somewhere.

A “WINDROSE” project.

THANK YOU, guys! Great job. Fantastic project.

Объявляется набор участников проектов DEREVO в 2007 г.

20. 09. 2006, 18:48 | by anton

Принимали вы участие в занятиях или нет - не имеет значения ни для DEREVO, ни для вас, ни для занятий. Это, надеюсь, всем понятно. Особенно тем, кто никогда не видел.

В ноябре-декабре 2006 будет проводиться отбор на проекты 2007 года, где вместе с группой DEREVO будут участвовать и студенты Антона Адасинского из разных стран.

Приготовьте материалы! Срок подачи продлён до конца января 2007!

  • 4-5 фотографий со сцены. Один портрет.
  • Стихи, рисунки, фотографии скульптур и т.д.
  • 2 фрагмента видео на DVD по 5 мин макс. импровизаций сделаных не раньше 16-го сентября 2006 года

Если кто-то из участников мастер-классов представляет себе другую форму сотрудничества с DEREVO – пишите.

Это может быть и работа в офисе,
и техническая (свет-звук-сцена),
и мультимедийная (видео-фото)
и массажно-поварская.
А также с хорошей дикцией можно читать вслух «Калевалу» в оригинале, так как DEREVO отличается повышенной неграмотностью, бархатной кожей и неумением свистеть.

Адрес для отправки в Дрезден:

Theater DEREVO
Festspielhaus Hellerau
Karl-Liebknecht-Str. 56
D-01109 Dresden
Deutschland / Германия
