PASSIONATE ZHOLDAK

Emmanuelle Bouchez

Telerama / Paris, France

UNUSUAL THEATRICAL EXPERIMENTS BY UKRAINIAN TRADITIONS DECLAIMER ANDRIY ZHOLDAK

        How beautiful and expressive it is when Zholdak manages to realize into action rebelling youth represented by Hamlet and Ophelia. It reaches you on a deeper level even when connection with the text is lost (microphones are switched off!)… You are remaining under impression of factory of images. “It is exactly what new audience consisting of new business class votes for, - says one theatrical critic from former Soviet Union, - fake and blazing modern”. Can it be that charismatic troupe leader has forsaken lessons of actors who by his own words he “is communicating with”: Bob Wilson or Tadeusz Kantor, in terms of clarifying a sense in particular? Too much Cartesian show arrangers in France avoid him. However, Englishmen, Japanese and Dutchmen are going to send him an invitation soon…
