Everything Like in Life!
Four days of two performances «House» and «Libra» in the direction of Evgeny Grishkovets with the participation of the best actors from the Moscow Art Theater troupe they kept Uzbek people in a state of light tonus and expecting pleasant surprise.
Opening the stage, the author and director Evgeny Grishkovets said: «Libra» - this is my new play, the stage fate of which I decided to do myself. This is the first time with me. Why? Yes, only for the simple reason that I do not dare to trust the heroes of this tender play with other people's hands. Although the characters of «Libra» are not sissies. They are normal, earthly men. But it is precisely in this play that I am particularly dear, because they are going through an exciting, important and very special night.»
And the characters are not really sissies. After all, one of them was played by the «absolute man» Igor Zolotovitsky. His game was special, although, perhaps, we perceived it so and felt it, knowing in advance that he was our fellow countryman. But in any case, his energy, his desire to show the best game, his love for his native Tashkent, excited the audience during the whole show. And he himself did not hide it: «To play in the city in which I was born and grew up is very exciting, because this is a theater that stunning traditions. Regardless of the language on which they play, it's still a Russian theater school, and this is a psychological theater, the theater on which we grew up.»
Playing the main character in the play «House», Igor Yakovlevich brilliantly turned into the role of a successful doctor with profitable private practice, who decided to purchase a plot of land. Outwardly, a very realistic everyday story, but very accurately raising the topic of human values, which, unfortunately, are incompatible with material values. All characters are absolutely recognizable, taken from life. Zolotovitsky managed to express himself very subtly and quite unobviously at his confusion about the refusal of his friends to help. With his brilliant play he pushed us to think deeply about such important components of human relations as friendship, love, betrayal.
For those messages that the actor sent from the stage to the viewer, he received an instant feedback. And even when the hall was silent, Zolotovitsky felt this verbose silence. Therefore, having excellently played the main character of the «House», he bowed out and with gratitude said: «The Uzbek people amazed me not only with the ability to laugh when it is necessary, but also the ability to remain silent. Sometimes silence sets us so adorning that you want to shout about it.»
