An ode to mum by Carmen Ow, Jorim Chua, Marilyn Lum and Rasina Rubin
A Mother’s Day special from our friends
Hasn’t mum always been there through the ups and downs of life? She will never fail to be your loudest cheerleader, loyal protector and favourite cook. Here, Carmen Ow, Jorim Chua, Marilyn Lum and Rasina Rubin share with us heartfelt tribute to their mothers.
CARMEN OW FOR OW PUI YEE
(Art direction: Audrey Chan)
You show me that strength does not need to be physical and the meaning of sacrifice when you constantly place our family’s needs above yours.
Always encouraging and telling me to try again when I fall.
And thank you for loving me unconditionally and giving me the best.
I thank God all the time for choosing you to be my mummy because you’ve been a miracle in my life. I hope that I have made you proud and given you as much joy as you have to me.
Happy Mother’s Day to my Queen. I love you!
JORIM CHUA FOR DR IROSHINI CHUA
(Art direction: Audrey Chan)
You have always been there and are one of the greatest influences in my life in multiple ways. You have been kind, a good role model and you have had the courage to push me in the right direction. Your kindness has allowed me to be a more compassionate person in my actions, thoughts and words. Having such a wonderful role model in my life has made me want to be like you – a strong, independent and capable person so that I can help others just like you have. Finally, you having the courage to push me to do my best has helped me achieve things that I would not even fathomed to be possible years ago. The best part is, you have done it all without a second thought and for that I am forever grateful. You have been there every step of the way and I have learnt so much from you. I am truly lucky that I am able to call you mom. All I hope is that I can repay the kindness and love you have given me someday, in some form, but right now all I can really say, with all my heart: I love you, Mom.
MARILYN LUM FOR JENNY CHIN

Thank you, mom, for showing me what it takes to be a good mother to my children, Philip and Robert. A precious keepsake you gifted me on my 21st birthday was this pair of Bvlgari earrings, which brings back such fond memories of time spent with you and all the amazing adventures we had together in my youth. Even though it’s just a piece of jewellery, it represents to me your endorsement of the woman that I had become and your unwavering love for me. Wishing all mums a Happy Mother’s Day. You have our appreciation, gratitude and love!
RASINA RUBIN FOR JAYA MOHIDEEN
(Art direction: Audrey Chan)
This year will be the first time we celebrate a Zoom Mother’s Day. I have not seen you in over a month and it looks like we can
only meet for a wonderful belated Mother’s Day lunch hopefully next month.
I am so grateful for everything you have tirelessly done for myself and the family. You have always been a pillar of strength to your siblings, dad, my brother, Sienna and all our extended family. You are so incredibly devoted to us all and we are very, very blessed.
You are also a great role model with so many notable achievements both professionally and personally. And yet, you always remain extremely humble. It is this humility which defines who you are as a leader and influential dealmaker.
I am very proud of you having been conferred the Knighthood, Commander of The House of Orange-Nassau, by Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, and most recently the Commander First Class of The Order of the Lion of Finland, by President Sauli Niinistö. You were also awarded the Wolfert van Borselen Medal by the Mayor and City of Rotterdam, which I remember when we were all living in Brussels.
You are a true inspiration to me and to women all around the world. Thank you for everything you do for us. I love you with all my heart. Happy Mother’s Day!
Lots of love,
Dick Lee: Imperfect Memories | Art in Singapore
Having made a glittering name for himself as a songwriter, composer, playwright, pop singer, fashion guru and restaurateur, Dick Lee has plenty of laurels to rest on – but the 57-year-old isn’t showing any signs of stopping. This month, he reveals yet another talent to the world: visual art.
‘I’ve always sketched, even in my childhood, when I was drawing comic books, and later when I studied fashion at the Harrow School of Art,’ recalls Lee. ‘I am [merely] revisiting this part of myself after so many years and this makes it even more exciting. Nobody else, apart from my family and Galerie Belvedere, knew that I can sketch and paint.’
And it’s just as well that Rasina Rubin, the director of Galerie Belvedere, happened to see Lee’s private works at his house and suggested that he create more works and put together an art exhibition. It took him three years to get everything in order, but it’s finally coming together this month.
The resulting show, Imperfect Memories, consists of 24 works divided into two series – titled ‘Flower’ and ‘Flag’ – and revisits his childhood in the 1950s and ’60s. The former series is drawn from his recollections of fabric shops; his mother used to run a boutique and his ‘earliest memories were of her shop and the countless bales of marvellously coloured fabric at the shops we used to visit,’ as he says fondly. The latter explores the more political concept of nationhood ‘as Singapore morphed from a British colony to a Malaysian state to an independent country’.
And while this is the first time that we will get a glimpse into his paintings, it’s certainly not the last. ‘I have never pursued a career in [visual] art until now, [but] these are works I take seriously and I, of course, hope that the public will regard them as serious works [too]. It is my wish to continue painting,’ Lee reassures us. ‘In fact, Imperfect Memory is the first of a series of exhibitions that I will be staging with Galerie Belvedere.’ Watch this space!

Savouring the world’s finest whiskies at Diageo Rare & Exceptional tasting
On Planet Whisky, few can beat the clout of global powerhouse Diageo. In Scotland, Diageo owns 50 out of the 130-odd whisky distilleries. Cult names like Caol Ila, Talisker and Mortlach are among them. Sitting at the pinnacle of Diageo’s massive whisky empire is the Rare & Exceptional, a portfolio of the company’s most- prized liquids.
And it is this special class of labels that a select group of readers were introduced to recently during two tasting sessions. They included Anthony Yong, Angela Lee-Ng, Bernard and Dolly Cheong, Chan Kok Weng and Elaine Lim-Chan, Jane Heng, Pauline Chan, Rasina Rubin, Terence Siew and Chermaine Pang.

Diageo Private Client Manager Raymond Poon
On Apr 13 and 15, Prestige co-hosted 12 guests to a memorable experience at the Diageo APAC headquarters. The evening began at The Bar with pours of the John Walker & Sons King George V. The group then adjourned to the Diageo Private Client Suite, where private client manager Raymond Poon gave a short introduction to the company’s illustrious heritage in whiskies and its most precious bottles.
The sit-down tasting followed shortly at The Bar’s dining space, where the guests embarked on a journey through Scotland with every sip, accompanied by cheese, nuts and Japanese chicken skewers. To fully showcase the whiskies’ complexity and flavour range, the profiles started with the lightest and most delicate, increasing in intensity to the smokiest and most peaty.
The bottles tasted at the second session, as pictured here, were: Pittyvaich 28 Year Old; Mortlach 21 Year Old Special Release 2020; Diageo Cask of Distinction Benrinnes 21 Year Old; Carsebridge 48 Year Old; Talisker 25 Year Old; and Caol Ila 1984. As Raymond offered valuable insight into whisky making and investing, the guests also took their time to decide which Rare & Exceptional best suited their palate.

Let The Deeds Speak For Themselves
Even after 60 years, Rubin’s Vinjak is recognised for its world-class quality, with hundred different awards, and its new special selection series, which was made to mark the jubilee
The Tri Morava region is located in central Serbia and covers an area of 286,930ha and nine vineyards, mainly characterised by moderately steep and gentle slopes and the fact that they are generally located at an altitude of 200 to 350 metres above sea-level, which enables the cultivation of top-quality grape varieties.
The Rubin Winery has a tradition dating back more than 60 years. In the last ten years, it has invested seriously in the expansion and renewal of vineyards and the introduction of modern technology. How big is the area currently occupied by Rubin’s vineyards?
– As a company, we are exceptionally committed to the quality and growth of the wine business, which is why our main preoccupation over the last decade has been an investment in the development of viticulture and the spreading of the wine culture in Serbia. Since 2008 we have acquired and planted over 800 hectares of vineyards, and today we have a total of 1,200 ha of vineyards.
We see the future in providing the raw materials for production from our own vineyards. With continuous growth, Rubin last year achieved annual production of more than 14 million litres of alcoholic beverages.
Rubin’s vineyards are located in the Tri Morava winegrowing region. What are the applicable attributes of that region and what are the most common varieties grown in your vineyards?
– In the development of viticulture, we are focusing on that part of central and southern Serbia, while our priority is the Tri Morava region, which is the location of our winery and the majority of our vineyards. Rubin mainly cultivates international varieties in its vineyards: Merlot, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc, Muscat Ottonel, Rhine Riesling and Italian Riesling.
We are working intensively on planting the Prokupac indigenous variety. We have devoted a special aspect to the series of varietal wines that are currently Rubin’s fastest-growing brand. The range of these wines comprises three whites and three reds: Cabernet Sauvignon, Prokupac, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscat Ottonel.
In creating these wines we were led by the idea of providing the market with something that reflects the serious work done in the vineyards and the winery.
We are currently developing the Vinjak Special Selection series, which will emerge as a result of the culmination of Rubin’s 60 years of experience in the production of vinjak. This is a blend of distillates that have aged in oak barrels for an unbelievable 30 to 50 years
You have been working intensively for many years on the revitalisation and progressive development of our autochthonous Prokupac variety?
– A rule of the winemaking world in developed countries is the correct selection of the assortment and work on choosing autochthonous varieties, so Rubin also turned towards the selection of varieties and the intensive planting of Prokupac and the production of wine from Prokupac.
We are expanding our Prokupac plantations every year and adjusting in accordance with the potential of vine grafts. In parallel with that, we are continuing to advance the wine potential of this variety through its clonal selection.
Vinjak is Rubin’s most popular authentic product, while its consistent quality has ensured the long-term loyalty of customers. What are your plans for Vinjak?
– Rubin Vinjak was created way back in 1957. And already by 1961, it had won its first prize, the Grand Prix in Ljubljana, and since then it has received hundreds of gold medals and championship trophies in international and domestic competitions.
Today we are working on the popularisation and promotion of vinjak brands Rubin VSOP and Rubin XO, which have been evaluated by foreign experts as being top world-class products.
To be the market leader for 60 years is a huge success, a success which, alongside the quality of Vinjak, must be attributed to its loyal customers, employees and Serbia.

90,000 95 years ago, the poet Schwarzburd shot the former head of the UPR Petliura in Paris
On May 25, 1926, the leader of the Ukrainian People’s Republic (UPR) Simon Petlyura was shot dead in Paris. The murderer Samuel Schwarzburd voluntarily surrendered to the police and was acquitted by the court, claiming that he took revenge on the Ukrainian nationalist for the Jewish pogroms during the Civil War. Ukrainian leaders suspected Soviet special services of organizing the assassination attempt.
How Pilsudski used Petliura
Simon Petliura can be called one of the losers of the Civil War.In the fall of 1919, the troops of the Ukrainian People’s Republic (UPR) were defeated by the White Guard forces, and the chief chieftain himself fled to Warsaw, barely able to stand, depressed, in mud-stained shabby clothes. The plan for the construction of a Ukrainian national state on the territory of Ukraine collapsed. In exile, Petliura no longer had any money, no state territory, no army. He clearly understood that a return to Ukraine was possible only with the help of other people’s bayonets. In many respects, out of despair, the chairman of the UPR Directory agreed to an alliance with Jozef Pilsudski, who cherished hopes for the revival of the Commonwealth and dreamed of a buffer, puppet Ukrainian state that would shield Poland from Russia.
On April 21, 1920, Petliura and Pilsudski concluded an agreement in Warsaw on a military alliance against the Bolsheviks. The Poles pledged to free Ukraine from the Red Army and hand it over to the chief chieftain, whom they were going to tightly control. He, in turn, agreed to the drawing of the state border along the Zbruch River and recognized the territories of Galicia and Volhynia (the former possessions of Austria-Hungary and the Russian Empire) for Poland. However, the alliance with the Poles not only did not strengthen Petliura’s position, but rather shook them even more.The agreement with Pilsudski was condemned by all Ukrainian political forces abroad. The Ukrainian emigration was outraged by the decision of the leader of the UPR to give up the territory. The comic of the situation was given by the fact that neither Petliura, nor the UPR, which existed only on paper in the spring of 1920, in fact had nothing to do with Galicia and Volhynia.
After the end of the Soviet-Polish war and the signing of the Riga Peace Treaty on March 18, 1921, the UPR finally ceased to exist as a real state entity.
A significant part of the lands declared by her went to Soviet Ukraine, and Eastern Galicia, western Volyn and Podlasie – to Poland. The activists of the UPR had no choice but to announce the creation of a “government of Ukraine in exile.” At first, it declared rather aggressive intentions. So, in the autumn of 1921, the emigrants planned an invasion of the Ukrainian SSR with the aim of organizing a popular uprising against the Bolsheviks. In case of a successful start of the campaign, Pilsudski promised Petliura to send Polish troops to the battle zone.Attempts at intervention did take place, but they were quickly brought to naught by units of the Red Army under the command of Grigory Kotovsky and Vitaly Primakov.
Why the poet Schwarzburd wanted to kill the chief ataman of the UPR
In 1923, the USSR demanded that Poland extradite Petliura. Not wanting to be kidnapped by the GPU, the military leader began wandering around Europe, lived in Hungary, Austria and Switzerland, until he arrived in Paris in the fall of 1924. There he was overtaken by the avenger – a Jewish poet and anarchist, a native of Ishmael, Samuel Schwarzburd.This man participated in the First World War as part of the French Foreign Legion, returned to Russia in August 1917, and after the October Revolution joined the anarchist Red Guard detachment and at first sympathized with the Soviet regime, fought with the Romanians as part of the Kotovsky brigade. Pretty soon, disillusioned with the Bolsheviks because of their suppression of the opposition, he moved to Paris in transit through Constantinople and Marseille, where he closely communicated with Nestor Makhno and other anarchists.
It is believed that Schwarzburd was looking for a way to get even for the Jewish pogroms for a long time.
In 1925, the poet learned from newspapers that Petliura was in the French capital, whom the Jews considered responsible for the rampant anti-Semitism during the period of the UPR’s activity (this issue is considered controversial by modern Ukrainian historians). According to researchers, at least 50 thousand Ukrainian Jews became victims of the pogroms. For about a year, Schwarzburd nurtured a vendetta plan, for which he was looking for a nationalist, and constantly carried with him a photo of him, cut from the newspaper.Having tracked down Petliura, the avenger bought a pistol and set about organizing the assassination attempt.
Schwarzburd’s resolve turned out to be so great that even Makhno, who knew Petliura well and argued that he was never an anti-Semite and a pogromist, could not dissuade him from the crime, and Jews also sat in the government of the UPR. At the trial, Makhno later admitted that he tried to warn Petliura about the danger, but did not have time.
First attempt failed. Schwarzburd did not dare to shoot, because there was a woman next to Petliura.
Shots at the corner of Saint-Michel and Racine
On May 25, 1926, the avenger noticed a man who looked like a former military leader of the UPR at the window of a bookstore near the Sorbonne – at the corner of Boulevard Saint-Michel and Rue Racine. Approaching and calling him in Ukrainian, the anarchist opened fire. Five bullets hit the target, two more missed. Petliura was taken to the nearby Charite hospital, where he died 15 minutes later. And Schwarzburd voluntarily surrendered to the police and announced the elimination of the murderer, explaining that on the orders of Petliura, his relatives died and his cousins were raped.
“Petliura was killed in Paris yesterday,” wrote the “Latest News” newspaper published by the former Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Provisional Government Pavel Milyukov. – The killer fired six bullets into Petliura. Petliura, seriously wounded, was taken by a police agent to the Charité hospital, where he died a few minutes later. The killer has been detained. ”
The Schwarzburd trial began a year and a half later and gained widespread resonance. Many world celebrities stood up for the defendant, in particular, the physicist Albert Einstein, the writers Maxim Gorky, Romain Rolland and Henri Barbusse, the artist Marc Chagall.
And the Schwarzburd Defense Committee created in Paris and New York found 126 witnesses who told the investigation in detail about the horrors of Jewish pogroms in Ukraine.
The defense managed to obtain an acquittal by convincing the judges of Petliura’s involvement in the massacres of the Jewish population.
Soviet trace in the liquidation of Petliura
True, there was a version of involvement in the murder of OGPU agents, since the USSR had tried to extradite Petliura three years earlier.During the investigation, this line was swept aside. Schwarzburd was officially declared a loner.
One of those who pointed to the “hand of Moscow” was a lawyer and politician Andrei Yakovlev, who in 1917-1918 served as the director of the Central Rada Chancellery, who later emigrated and taught law at the Ukrainian Free University. If you believe this person, the former head of the Union of Socialist-Revolutionaries-maximalists in the Far East, Mikhail Volodin, who allegedly met Schwarzburd in Paris in January 1926 and actively sought out the address of the future victim, took part in the operation to eliminate Petliura.
“As soon as the Soviet agents saw that Petliura had left the house alone for dinner, they immediately let Volodin know and one of them called Schwarzburd by phone,” Yakovlev described the events that took place on the day of the murder. – Schwarzburd went to a nearby store to the phone, returned home and immediately ran out of the house, in which he was standing, in a white work blouse, without a hat, not wanting to have breakfast, although breakfast, as his wife admitted, was already on the table. From Boulevard Menimoltan, where Schwarzburd lived, to the restaurant on Racine Street, where Petliura dined, it will be one and a half to two kilometers, and it was possible to travel by underground railway, but with a change, in 25-30 minutes. “
Further, Yakovlev claimed that at 13:00 Schwarzburd met Volodin on Racine Street, who: “I told him that Petliura was in a restaurant – I received a letter from him for the pneumatic mail, in which Schwarzburd immediately wrote in pencil that“ his act must end today ”, and waited for the completion of the act. And when the murder was committed and Schwarzburd was arrested, at 2 hours 15 minutes, then Volodin went to the post office of the Hotel de Ville and dropped the letter there. ”
According to Yakovlev, which is also cited in the book by Alexander Kolpakidi and Klim Degtyarev “USSR Foreign Intelligence Service”, “the trial was biased and political in nature, and therefore it was not possible to establish a complete picture of the preparation for the murder.”
At the same time, it is believed that certain circles of France were also interested in the murder of Petliura, who used his death to incite a campaign against anti-Semitism.
In the book by Ilya Kaverin “Before the Judgment of History. Simon Petlyura “with reference to one of the experts, a version is put forward that the assassination attempt was organized by a small group of Jews who defended their own interests. One of its leaders was allegedly Anri Torres – at that time a communist and Schwarzburd’s lawyer.
Petliura’s killer died of a heart attack on a beach in Cape Town in 1938, shortly after moving to South Africa.30 years later, his remains were reburied in Israel.
Alexandrinsky Theater in St. Petersburg
Alexandrinsky Theater … What do you imagine at these words? Bright decorations, weightless ballerinas, daring hussars and a grateful applauding audience. Let’s open the veil of secrecy and look at the Alexandrinsky Theater from the inside. After all, he deserves it, so many talents were born here that you cannot even imagine.
Most visitors first go to contemplate Ostrovsky Square.They strive here to see the legendary theater, and, if possible, enjoy the performances. Do you dream about it too? Then it would be better to book a room in advance in the hotels of Nevsky Prospekt or rent a room in one of the many hotels in St. Petersburg.
Once it was the Russian State Academic Drama Theater. A.S. Pushkin, its history began in the middle of the 18th century, during the reign of the Russian Empress Elizabeth Petrovna. It was the first public theater to operate on a permanent basis.Before that, the Russian people were not spoiled for performances, only sometimes foreign corpses came to us, most of them Italian and operatic.
An invaluable contribution to the theater was made by Fyodor Volkov, a gifted director and actor. The first director was the classic of Russian drama – Sumarokov. And the first shows were the most accurate copies of European works – these were plays by Racine, Moliere, Beaumarchais. The works of Russian playwrights such as Fonvizin, Sumarokov, Knyazhnin were also displayed.The audience liked it, people from all over our country were drawn to the theater.
Whoever was not here: A.S. Pushkin and V.G. Belinsky, often performed by the author of many plays – Ostrovsky. And even A.P. Chekhov sat tensely in the hall, watching the performances of his works. The audience repeatedly applauded other theatrical stars: Komissarzhevskaya, Karatygin, Mochalov, Bogdanova-Chesnokova performed here.
Then the wife of Nicholas I, Alexandra Feodorovna, became the patroness of the institution.In honor of her, the theater was later named. To be precise, this event happened in 1832. It was then that the theater moved to a new building, the facade of which was turned to Nevsky Prospect. The building itself (by the way, it was designed by the Italian architect Carl Rossi) was located on Alexandrinskaya Square. Today this area is called Ostrovsky Square, and there are several of our hotels with rentals for a day or longer. The building was erected in the Empire style. It is dignified and light at the same time.The theater is decorated on all sides with porticoes and sculptural friezes. And above the main facade is the creation of the quadriga, which is ruled by the god Apollo. The Alexandrinsky Theater rightfully secured the status of the city’s decoration.
And even when you get inside, you will see that the original decoration of the interiors is still preserved. The breath of the master is felt at every step: spacious parterre, stucco reliefs, rich cornices. Perfect acoustics and ideal proportions complete this impeccable image.

The first story by Dina Rubina was published in the distant 60s of the last century in the then popular magazine Yunost. After that there were several more publications, but, according to Dina Rubina herself, “they did not take the best things. So, stories, little things. ” Despite this, the readers remembered and fell in love with the author of ironic and touching stories and were looking forward to the release of the next issues of the magazine.But real interest in the work of the writer on the part of eminent publications such as “New World”, “Banner”, “Friendship of Peoples” appeared only after the emigration of Dina Rubina abroad. “Probably, I had to leave to break the dam …” The writer is convinced that her works can only be read, because “the prose of writers with a pronounced author’s intonation cannot be transferred to the stage and screen.” And, of course, it is even better if the author himself reads his stories, because no one better than him can convey all the shades and feelings, the depth and sincerity of what is written.In the audiobook “Drink and Snack / Transit Alt”, Dina Rubina recalls the events and people who occupied and still occupy an important place in her life: the poet Igor Guberman, her sister, emigration. He shares with us his thoughts about life, recreates the atmosphere of the years gone by. © D. Rubina; © & ℗ IP Vorobiev © & ℗ ID SOYUZ

90,000 Jutta Lampe returned to “Shaubune” by Andromache – Kommersant newspaper No. 26 (2865) dated 13.02.2004
Jutta Lampe returned to Schaubune Andromache
Newspaper “Kommersant” # 26 of , p. 21
One of the best contemporary German actresses, Jutta Lampe, has returned to the stage at the Schaubühne Theater in Berlin, where she once played her most famous classical roles during the Peter Stein era. ROMAN Kommersant-DOLZHANSKY believes that this is an exemplary model of a comeback – in a new quality, in a bold play, in a performance by the original director.
Jutta Lampe is known in Russia primarily for three outstanding Chekhov roles – Masha in Three Sisters, Ranevskaya in The Cherry Orchard, Arkadina in The Seagull. All three performances toured Moscow, the first two being staged by Peter Stein at the Schaubühne Theater in Berlin. When a new team, led by Thomas Ostermeier and Sasha Waltz, came to the theater in 2000, the entire old troupe, regardless of faces and popularity, was asked to leave. So Arkadina Jutta Lampe played already in Vienna, in the play by Luke Bondi, and in general all these years she played in different German cities, without joining any troupe.Now, as a free star, she responded to the invitation of “Schaubyune”.
It would seem that the Belgian director Luc Perceval was not the best candidate for staging a benefit comeback. In recent years, he has staged elegant minimalist performances, the most famous of which is “Autumn Dream” based on a play by the Norwegian Ion Fosse, reminiscent of Maeterlinck’s dramas of silence (short simple phrases, stopped time, human doom). Luc Perceval, in collaboration with his brother Peter, rewrote the tragedy of Racine “Andromache” proposed to Jutte Lampe in the way that Ion Fosse would probably have done.Cleared the plot of minor characters, Alexandrian verse, punctuation marks and any loopholes for acting pathos and open emotions. The longest monologue is 20 short lines (compare with Racine), no remarks or explanations.
Luc Perceval continued to cut off the excess already on stage. There is no music and almost no movement in the play. The few abrupt impulses that Hermione (Yvon Jansen) and Pyrrhus (Mark Vacchke) make are torn apart by the strict geometry of the playing area, more precisely, the playing strip.The five main characters of the tragedy stand and sit on a narrow and high rock-pedestal, the foot of which is dotted with green bottles, whole and broken. The characters open up to the viewer behind a high, charcoal curtain, with a soft rustle moving away in a circle to the back of the stage. The performance begins to the sound of the bottles clinking: the furious Hermione smashes the glass on the pedestal, and then the sharp neck of the broken bottle in her hand will become her last argument.
The picture is somewhat reminiscent of an antique frieze, which for minutes comes to life in rapid throws and then freezes in a new position.Mythological heroes are beyond history and time. Their suffering, their passions and their deaths are exhausted by very simple phrases. The past cannot be resurrected, and the future does not come, they are planted here forever to play the same plot. If Luc Perceval were a brave conceptual innovator, he could have the audience watch the same show as a second act (I honestly wouldn’t mind). But he is still not an extremist, but an esthete, therefore he confines himself to an elegant one-act hour with a soft light score, which almost imperceptibly changes the volume and sharpness of the silhouettes.
What does Jutta Lampe do in the play? It seems like now and there is nothing to tell, but it was impossible to take your eyes off her. She sits almost motionless with her hands hidden behind her back (after all, a prisoner), absent-mindedly looks at one point, speaks softly and defiantly. Highlighted by clothes: if Pyrrhus, who is in love with Andromache, jealous Hermione, who became her instrument of revenge, Orestes (Ronald Kukulies), and Oresta’s friend Pilad (Andrei Shimansky) are dressed in simple gray fabrics, then Andromache has invented a beige knitted dress that goes very well with red hair until red.Once, a little disgusted and frightened, she picked up her legs. She lowered her head once or twice. When the plot was resolved and Andromache turned out to be the winner in it, Jutta Lampe just freed her hands from behind and began to wander uncertainly with her fingers on her knees – but how much naturalness was invented in this weak gesture.
Anyone who has seen Jutta Lampe on stage before can imagine what this strict and restrained work cost her. After all, she is not at all a cold queen of the stage, but on the contrary, she is especially good in the movement of the role, in the overflow of voice and moods, in a changeable dramatic partnership with other actors.One can only imagine how many of her equal status actresses would “play enough” in such a situation, how boldly they would try to designate their return to the place of former glory. How they would strive to demonstrate that time has no power over them. Jutta Lampe, on the contrary, recalled with her return that time passes very quickly – but not only in her personal acting biography, but also in theatrical aesthetics, in directing, in drama. Those who are not afraid to try these changes on themselves will never turn into a monument of antiquity.
