OMSK STATE THEATRE OF PUPPETS, ACTORS AND MASKS

"HARLEQUIN"

PRINTED IN USA

by "SITEK Co" in cooperation with "KALEIDOSCOPE" PLUS PUBLISHING”, New York, 1994

The Omsk Region Puppet Theatre opened it's First season in 1936 with production called "Kashtanka". In the early nineties it became clear that the theatre company was seeking to create a new theatre — universal and syntetic one-focused to serve the audience of different age groups, and where actors could fulfil their artistic ambitions and talents. There fore, in 1992 the theatre acquired the new name: Omsk State Theatre of Puppets actors and masks "Harlequin".

 

Actors of the Omsk Puppets theatre take active part in theatrical life of Russia. Every year they present their work at different festivals; competitions, theatrical reviews and contests suchas: in 1983 in Abacan — "Cinderella"; 1986 in Tomsk — "Warm bread"; 1986 in Moscow — "Mess-Mend"; 1990 in Arkchangelsk — "A duckling called Grey neck" at all Russia festival "Snaie"; 1993 in Minsk — “Tale about Vania” — at international Ruppet Theatre festival; 1994 in St. Petersburg — “Morozko” at international festival “Nevsky Pierro”.

 

In 1994 the theatre was invited to participate at the international festival in Plzen, Czechia with the production “Tale about Vania” and at the Third New Days of Baltic Sea Puppet Theatre festival in Finland with the production “Morozko”.

A modern puppet theatre can not exist without classical forms. Following this rule our theatre constantly turns to “screen” perfomances, preserving the “old school” traditions of puppet manipulation.

The director and disigner in productions like “A duckling called Grey Neck” (1988) and “Morozko” (1992) the most important ones are the ones who tell the story and how they do it.
