Problems of Theatre Proscaenium

2013 ¹1

Theme of the Issue:
The volume’s theme can be formulated as an attempt to define, perhaps the central question of modern theatrology and theatre criticism: what is now «the theatre as such», what are its goals and objectives in the face of challenges imposed by the features of today's social and cultural process? In the «New Theatre, Old Stage» section both practicians and theorists are trying to think about the future of Russian performing art in light of the upcoming reforms. The section «In Disputes over Repertory Theatre» presents a wide range of opinions of Russian and foreign experts about the right to be called «repertory theatre», and how today's usage of the term correlates with its historical understanding, and how European repertory theatres are constituted (especially considered in detail the question of what they borrowed from the Russian model, and what deviated from it). Significant space in the body of the volume’s articles is attributed to the materials revealing the theatre life of the Russian province. Of the scale of problems it is highlighted the question of the spectator: the relationship between theatre and audience is considered on the examples of Norilsk, Krasnodar, Khabarovsk, Chelyabinsk cities. The section «Theatre Diary» presents productions of the leading directors of today: R. Tuminas, Y. Butusov, A. Borodin, etc. The problem of modern drama and its main trends are analyzed on the material of plays by Nikolay Kolyada and Lyudmila Petrushevskaya.
