How do we overcome the nightmare of abandonment? The phone becomes an obsessive object when we are expecting a call, drowning in broken dreams.
In this real enough staged by the Moscow Armenian theatre, the themes of Pacinotti and harsh and even unbearable truth, explored and displayed. Before us the play by Cocteau. Many people don't know what Jean Cocteau wrote plays, though Ingrid Bergman once played a major role in his play. This play, it was turned into a radio drama for the BBC in 1998.
Zita Badalyan plays with every inch of his body and soul, and her anguish and pain, plunging into obsession, impressive and painful to contemplate. Waiting for the phone to call in every gesture reflected her fury and feelings on lost, but welcome love.
In this production with many striking moments that highlighted the chaotic backdrop when our artist sings a monologue, which reconstructs the story and divides the inner emotional journey.
the Atmosphere is ghostly, very real and earthly. We provide and we are skillfully immersed in the picture emotional, intense, sad, hopeful and sometimes dark is a place for the outcast, living with a desperate hope.
the Power lies in the sensitivity and inventive use of a second contractor who pulls the strings of emotions of the heroine. It reminded me about the art of William Arkle. Thrown into an emotional sea, we do not control how we can control yourself when such a shock? There is a communication, which is often beyond our understanding – love can destroy and warming at the same time.
Excellent performer delivers the monologue with commitment and using excellent technique. It lost clarity. This cause the text which is sung is not her mother tongue and she is usually little over the top sometimes because of this. If the setting must be made so, we need some drama in the presentation of the play. The production is a spectacle, visually arresting and powerful. Words are often a little lost, and that's something to work on. With such a fantastic actor, I feel that the least will be great in scenarios.
This production has the potential of becoming really outstanding. But before that you need to work on. But still, this is a very worthy, innovative and sometimes shattering performance of this play.
