Joseph Brodsky’s poetry in recital

 

Performed by Igor Pekhovich

 

Alexis Granowsky Theatre-Laboratory, Moscow

 

Based at Taganka Theatre Small Stage

 

Igor Pekhovich's latest mono-performance is a high-featured scenic declaration of Joseph Brodsky's poetry by a "Man-Orchestra" (as he is often referred at the Tangan Theatre, Moscow). His recitative, which is a dramatic form of artistic excellence, is voicing not a sound just of one, but a dialogue of many, turns a traditional understanding of this form into a completely unexpected performance charging audience with a faith towards each note, each action, each syllable but important of the action beside thehigh poetic word. These actions make the viewer feel as if the poetry of Joseph Brodsky is at first time read ever! It is obvious that the show has a difficult, philosophical textual content, while the rhythm of poetry creates a new material of time, where the narrator as a free human is challenged by this time material. Igor Pecovich's performance is not only a tribute to Brodsky's but also made with a magic of the prayers read in the old Hebrew, which enthralls audience completely.

Igor Pecovic is an artist, director, teacher and actor of Moscow's legendary Tanganka, who also heads the Grantovski Theater and is laureate of  many theatre and music festivals. Yuri Lubimov's student successfully completed the Moscow Kantor Arts Academy and last year set up The Granovsky Theatre on basis of Granovsky Laboratory,working  atTangan's small stage.
