The Fascinating Theatre Mastermind behind Well-known Characters
Text: Irina Pivkina
Film, painting, and music composition - these art forms can interpret everyday life activities through sound, visualisation, colours, and dialogues - a morning coffee at Montmartre, a romantic sunset while riding the London Eye. However, only theatre can establish harmony between art and metamorphosis, between the technical and the artistic. In particular, an individual - an actor - carries the story, along its psychoanalytics and sentiments. To be an actor is one of the most complicated challenges in art, as you must have an inner balance, as well as the ability to envision ways to transmit emotion to the viewer. For an actor to have a sense of freedom they have to combine a vast amount of practices in their acting, ranging from music and visual arts to history and psychology. A genuinely plausible stage experience can only be achieved via a mastery of performing techniques and the individual's charisma and passion.
A Russian actress Nadezda Larina is one of those rare creative masterminds who are able to combine talent, dedication, and a wide acting range. During a successful acting career on stage in such countries as Italy, Russia, and Serbia, Nadezda always demonstrated that the Russian school of acting is something that can turn the whole set into a completely new reality - a parallel universe. You can see her acting prowess in the character of Akaky Akakievich Bashmachkin in Nikolai Gogol's "The Overcoat", where she transforms herself into a low-level male clerk in an ordinary local government department; or in multiple characters in the play "Lamentation" by Polish writer Krzysztof Bizio, where Nadezda portrayed stories of three women during different stages of their lives - at 16, 33 and 60 years old.
To conclude, consider how Nadezda Larina's embodies the kind and sentimental Lyubov Ranevskaya in Chekhov's "The Cherry Orchard," or an unmarried Maureen Folan in her 40s who lives in Ireland and takes care of her mother in Martin McDonagh's "The Beauty Queen of Leenane", or the self-searching Katerina in A.N. Ostrovsky "The Storm". These are among extensive examples of how Nadezda Larina expands on Konstantin Stanislavsky's method of acting via deep subconscious evaluation of the character in order to feel and express their mental and physical state authentically and broadly.
