In 1930, Jean Cocteau wrote the play "the human Voice" is a story of suffering and meaninglessness of life abandoned woman, madly in love and ready for love to go on any victim. White room, bright red and black spots — set design exactly follows the remark playwright. It Turns Out She (Zita Badalyan). White skin, black hair, amazing deep eyes. She begins her monologue. A calm tone is gradually replaced by a cry of despair and abject hopelessness. She was alone, he left her. The world has collapsed, life has lost all meaning. Love is not with you anymore. All that's left is just letters and a white shirt. She puts on her, as if trying on the skin, trying to feel the body of a loved one, unknowingly becoming hostage to things. Parting is always a heaviness and pain, the heart can't stand it, life gradually leaving her, drop by drop, leaving a place of madness and loneliness pseudoclausia. The mirror became a traitor, because it's not his reflection. Phone calls hatred, he was "loudly" silent things — everything, absolutely everything reminds you of him, about the recent present that became the past. Actress like pulls from soul, revealing its hidden spots. Harsh-gentle plastic. The heroine fragile, like a statue. It from loneliness and immense pain is crazy. She is surrounded by people-the ghosts, people mask, CE inner desire to once again become defenseless little girl. The person she spoke to — she. Madness or reality, fiction or unwillingness to accept the circumstances? The actions of the heroine are ruled by loneliness and pain, shadow, mirror, phone, memories are CE environment, the past real life. Death for her is out of the game in life. She dies, piercing every part of his body, his voice, the only thing she had left.
Two performances of the Moscow Armenian theatre are closely linked common theme — common thread of hopelessness, the suffering of the soul, a tragic end, but also the ability of a person to sacrifice their life for love. Heroes V. Saroyan and Jean Cocteau in productions of Fame Stepanian. — people are not willing to accept external circumstances, but is able to act.
