Psychosis

Dark, disturbing and inventive 

One of the most anticipated premieres of last season, “Psychosis” is as much an experiment as it is a theater production. The director is Alexander Zeldovich — best known for his films based on Vladimir Sorokin’s dystopian screenplays — while visuals for the backdrop were provided by AES+F, Russia’s most famous group of video artists. Based on Sarah Kane’s “4.48 Psychosis,” the play chronicles a case of clinical depression through the monologues of 19 different women. Kane’s lines are both powerful and disturbing, especially when accompanied by AES+F’s vivid imagery which oscillates between happiness and vulgarity. The production is accompanied by English subtitles.

This, the first of two evenings of overtures, tells the epic tale of the phantasmagorical civilization of Drillalia, which exists parallel to earth. The work's chief protagonist, a prince, must save his magical land from destruction. In this first episode, Drillalians occupy the deck of the transportational device that transfers their gondolas through space and time during a ritual dedicated to the perishing of the world. The first two parts of this series are overtures (formally – a single overture in two parts). But even if nothing else were to follow them, we would learn much from them of Drillalian aesthetics, of light irony amid pretentious fairy tales, and of contemporary opera in Russia.

The Stanislavsky Electrotheatre's Drillalians hexalogy is an exeptional event in the sphere of new musical and opera theater in Moscow. In just a short time under the leadership of Boris Yukhananov the Electrotheatre has become one of the most fashionable stages in Moscow. Five premieres in the Drillalians cycle, now published in CD and DVD formats, took place in the course of a week. Yukhananov, who directed and wrote the entire libretto, notes in the program: "Alongside earthly reality another civilization exists parallel to it. Its name is Drillalia".
