ARARAT Museum presents the second episode of ARARAT Speakers Night

The second episode of ARARAT Speakers Night series took place in ARARAT Museum on October 10th. This time the event was devoted to theatre and called “The new facets of theatre”. ARARAT Speakers Night Episode II explored the current problems of the contemporary theatre, it’s tendencies regarding different branches of art and new theatrical practices. The speaker of ARARAT Speakers Night II was the famous Hollywood actor John Malkovich.

Keeping the art in the focus of ARARAT and paying tribute to the amazing traditions of the Armenian ancient theatre, ARARAT Speakers Night could not bypass the issues of the contemporary theatre.

Cinema, television, Internet - every new round of cultural development raised the question "To be or not to be" to the theatre. Throughout the history, theatrical art overcame a number of challenges often conquering new territories by modifying itself.

Today, the classical theatre continues the search for the new forms of existence providing the viewer a rich emotional experience and engaging him/her in the action. Hamlet with a cell phone, Pushkin's characters in the stylistics of Kabuki Theatre, greatest ballet dancer who reads Brodsky, a spectator who has the opportunity to watch the play of actors while being an invisible virtual shadow on stage – the search for new facets turns the modern theatre into a crossroad of time, spaces, styles and art forms.

Being in Armenia within the frame of Aram Khachaturian V International Festival and the unique project implemented jointly with the artistic director of the State Youth Orchestra of Armenia Sergey Smbatyan, John Malkovich shared his experience of bringing new cultural elements to the traditional theatrical paradigm as well as about revealing the facets of theatre and new forms of capturing the attention of easily-distracted spectator.

ARARAT Speakers Night is a special series of meetings and discussions, an intellectual space, where the professionals from different spheres including experts, artists, opinion leaders, journalists and representatives of contemporary art will present their thoughts on urgent issues. The speakers of the first episode of ARARAT Speakers Night were Zelfira Tregulova, director of the Russian State Tretyakov Gallery and Danilo Eccher, curator, contemporary art critic; and one of the primary faces in the Italian art.

John Malkovich is represented by GART Music agency.
