«Future.doc». The opening of the new Doc’s stage «DOC on the island»
Playwright – Ivan Ugarov
Director – Dmitry Sobolev
On the 12th of April Teatr.doc opens its new permanent stage «DOC on the island» (Sadovnicheskaya nabereznaya, 69) with the premiere of the performance «Future.doc»
If you have a feeling that you have already heard this name before you are not mistaking. That was the name of the project shown on 22nd of August 2018. For that project Teatr.doc’s playwrights took a few interviews with the 17 years old teenagers about the future – their own, their families and their country. The performance went like this: a man on the stage (there were actors Anatoly Belyi, Julia Aug, a journalist Zoya Svetova, an architect Oleg Carlson, a composer Alexander Manotskov and a few others) received a recording with a pair of headphones. He listened to the recording with a monolog of a teenager and recounted it to the audience without any preparations. This improvisation had a chance to be a complete disaster but instead became an example of how the process changes to the result in front of the audience.
The new performance is a development and an extension of the project initiated in 2018. It is based on the new monologs of 16 and 17 years old boys and girls who were speaking about their present, their problems and desires, about their families and of course about their plans for the big life ahead.
The director of the project is Dmitry Sobolev. Ivan Ugarov with a few playwrights collected about 40 monologues and made a dramatic composition and Dmitry Sobolev directed it.
«We were working in a headphone verbatim technic. The important thing is that the actors are not playing, they are broadcasting the recorded text, reliving in. From this comes the desire to share this new reliving experience with as many people as possible, to understand the new generation, their problems and success,» said Sobolev. Actors of Teatr.doc who is going to be changing from show to show will make this happen. After the presentation on 12th of April the performance will become a part of Teatr.doc’s repertoire.
«Teatr.doc is a teenager just like these young people. When we are listening to them we can understand what is going to happen to us,» said one of the leaders of the project, playwright Ivan Ugarov. «Our theatre has the same problems and the same reasons for being happy. And it is growing and developing as well.»
Starting to work with the «Future…» theatre pays respect to the past and the present. We gathered here on the 1st of April to remember – we showed the performance «The feedback» dedicated to the late artistic director of the theatre, Mikhail Ugarov (he died on the 1st of April 2018). And we are holding an open festival of documental projects «Hunting Reality» from 3rd to 8th of April.
