Fantastic clothes of this children's performance do
not belong to any historical epoch and in many respects resemble carnival.
They are executed in workshops of the Moscow Art theatre on almost lost
At creation of fantastic conditions of performance
artist Marina Sokolova made a start from a historical atmosphere of
Germany of 16-th century.
Rare materials such as a church brocade and laces of
manual weaving are used alongside with the fabrics widespread today
- shiffon, atlas, velvet and brocade which nevertheless excellent are
combined among themselves by unusual patterns due to thin feeling and
skill of the artist. For example, the shiffon painted manually, is wonderfully
combined with a brocade.
Clothes in the basis have the simple cover however
do not leave impression of simplicity. Many of them represent multilayer
clothes though actually it are a single whole, and the problem of changing
clothes of actors thus is solved during performance. The internal silhouette
of all clothes is very simple and consequently is convenient for actors.
The scenic image is not only the actor. Actually, the actor on a stage
- concentration of efforts of all theatrical collective, including
and the artist of a stage (of artist of theatre (of theater)). Both
a suit, and a make-up, and illumination, and scenery , and accordingly,
a work of the dresser, the make-up artist, the lighting operator,
etc. is an initial point for creation of an image by the actor (except
for director's decisions). Scenographic style (the scenography, design
creative work, scenographic art) dictates to the executor of a role
scenic behaviour. The scenograph frequently unites in itself designer
of costume (of suit) and the designer of scenery (scene-painter, scene-designer).
The set designer costs closer to the director of performance and determines
structure, kind of production. He is a founder of a show. It on his
art taste (culture) depends: there will be a spectator success at
scenic performance or will not be. Theatrical painting has the peculiarity.
The drawing (image) on scenery close seems by rough daub, however
from auditorium it looks unusually picturesque and fine.
