Aleksandr Filippenko

"In Search of a Living Soul"

Solo performance / Gogol, Zoshchenko, Dovlatov, Pasternak, Levitansky.

Alexander Filippenko - actor - legend, actor - era, MAN - THEATER.

He has said more than once that he feels like a translator from the author to the audience... And he is a brilliant translator. How to combine the funny and the deep, the spiritual and the absurd in one performance? Who else reads Gogol like this? According to Filippenko, there are no “modern” writers - there are only geniuses and mediocrities. And geniuses are always modern.

Why is this a must see? Not only because the brilliant actor reads wonderful prose and poetry: Gogol, Zoshchenko, Dovlatov, Pasternak, Levitansky... And not only because he does it uniquely, as always, and everyone gets great pleasure from it! Listening to Alexander Filippenko, you suddenly realize that the choice of literary texts and the author’s embodiment of them connects three centuries - XIX, XX and XXI - and this connection of times creates that single living space in which the moral quests of the authors sound modern and timely - and we cannot don’t think: where are we, what’s wrong with us...

Poems, stories, stories, novels... Filippenko reads with his signature intonations and pauses, which are like anticipation, turning into taste. Alexander Filippenko will comment on small fragments from his film works with constant humor and warm memories of his great partners and directors.

Everyone’s favorite author’s facial expressions and plasticity, the breath of another era, from which there are not many traces in our lives. And the main thing is contact with real art and a real great ARTIST.

Approximate Duration: 1 hour and 30 minutes without intermission.
