And note – performances by Kirill Serebrennikov “Ordinary Story” Gogol-center and Konstantin Bogomolov “Jubilee jeweler” Moscow Art Theatre . Chekhov. For a number of reasons. Firstly, the de facto: in spite of all okoloteatralnye scandals in social networks and emotional expressions of directors on its pages an unwillingness to participate in the competition of the festival organizing committee of the “Golden Mask” no official denials of any of Serebrennikov, nor from Bogomolov did not receive. Second, de jure: a significant addition – if Kirill Serebrennikov, as the leader of “Gogol-center” has the right to decide whether to participate or not his team in any competition and festival, then Konstantin Bogomolov, as a guest director may withdraw only his name from nomination “work of the director,” but did not respond in the context of the “Golden Mask” for the whole of the Moscow Art Theatre. And third, the most important – their claim relates to several members of the expert council of the future “Golden Mask” in 2017 which is only now embarking on their work, and to create posters of Prime Minister started the theater season, and which, in the opinion of the directors, not They can impartially evaluate their performances. So this conflict – a virtual perspective and with prolongation of the future. Unless, of course, this “zillion torment” in 2017 anyone else remember.
By the way
Kirill Serebrennikov also nominated for the “Golden Mask” and in the section of musical theater as a director of the ballet “The hero of our time,” the Bolshoi Theatre.
President of the Theatre of Russia, Alexander Kalyagin:
– This list works by Kirill Serebrennikov remain to be considered. The director was an emotional outburst. But he must listen to his theater. The stronger you are the director, the need to be modest in their ambitions to prove that you’re the best. It is one thing – to draw attention to himself, and another thing to just create, create, sweating and do. “In general, according to Alexander Kalyagin, the reform of the” Golden Mask “- is a normal process:” Everything is changing, for example, is education reform. And when it came to the “Golden Mask”, then why all of a sudden started. But it is a living process, and nothing else.
