The chamber of stageAutor: Irina Alpatova

The New Drama Theatre and its director Vyacheslav Dolgachev try not to yield to the more «accessible» companies inside the Garden Ring of the capital. Sometimes it surprises the audience with repertoire discoveries and curious interpretations, being actually ahead of the pack. This time the theater dared to make a risky move — to produce an improvisational show. This is a unique example in the modern theatrical context.
The small audience (there are 48 places in the chamber room) are intrigued with the peculiarity of an action and, perhaps, forget for a time about the difficulty of Dostoyevsky’s text. His words are not only read, they are adapted by the contemporary actors and are made clear and obvious. So it turned out to be quite an easy mutual action, not to say about the benefit of it.
