ANTIDOTLIQUID Theatre, Moscow-Chelyabinsk
Music: Nine Inch Nails, The Cinematic Orchestra, Pyotr Leschenko, Four Tet, Bang on a Can; Mix – Andrei Smirnov
Liquid Theatre, that won the “Innovation” nomination at the last "Golden Mask», plays the “Antidot” in the Assembly hall. The theatre works in the site-specific genre, which means building in its performances into one or another environment. "Antidot" calls the person chained to his office to remember about the nature. Initially it was a park performance. The actors playing clerks on a lawn, at the denouement were turned into grass themselves. Later it was played in the streets of different cities, in squares and shopping centers. In winter “Antidot” is played on stage, and site-specific is developed in the streets before the performance for self-advertisement purposes.
Managers were constantly seized with a nervous dance tic: catching their backs they took uncomfortable complicated poses, cast meaningful detached glances, and with all their body demonstrated the importance of inner contemplation that yoga so much fusses about. Roaring with laughter audience, the most of whom are professional or semi-professional dancers, laughed at themselves during the whole show. This means that everything is all right with Russian contemporary dance’s self-irony.
