“Immaculate man”

In honor of the 80th anniversary of Vladimir Vysotsky and on the eve of his memory (the poet did not July 25, 1980), the Jewish Museum and tolerance center opened dedicated to the poet exhibition and produced a book that allows you to understand who he was for his country. Vysotsky as a poet, an actor, a dandy, and most importantly — as a myth — in the material “the”.

Culminating in the world Cup helped, ironically, to restore the memory of this important moment of death of Vladimir Vysotsky (1938-1980) — in the midst of the Olympics, where the football championship is comparable in scale. Almost 40 years ago, Moscow has been refined and most refined of people, contacts with foreigners is reduced to a formal minimum. On this lifeless background of wild informal pandemonium — endless queue of desperate to say goodbye to the idol, which is down on both Radishevskiy to the Yauza embankment, it seemed — and was — a phenomenon unthinkable, alien.

the exhibition at the Jewish Museum and tolerance centre (EMCC), which is open until 23 September, you’s not gonna see anything. But it is important because no one but EMCT, round date, didn’t seem to notice. “The corridors. Seven worlds of Vladimir Vysotsky” is a project that thoroughly not recreating the circumstances of the life and death of the poet and the authentic atmosphere of his time, and the atmosphere of the songs, scenery, inhabited by characters Vic with Gena and Evdokim K. with Kesey by M. of “the Ballad about the childhood”, which begins with the biography of Vladimir Vysotsky. The exhibition also begins with it.

“he Passed through the hallway and finished the wall, it looks,” sang Vysotsky in 1975, and the organizers of the project, appealing to the quote literally, built a Suite of those “rooms” of the song. “Thirty-eight” there was not enough space in the narrow side passage of the bakhmetevsky bus garage they squeezed a total of seven, one per song. Songs sound in the headphones, while the audience, looking around in close quarters and looking from enamelled drinking bottle (like the grandmother on a summer residence) on the ebony black phone, the old hanger, the filthy, never washing window — imbued with the atmosphere of a forgotten era. It is unclear what is there more — the joy of recognition will take from childhood, the horror of the most likely parts of admiration how deftly and accurately all recreated.

There really is not “like a native”, namely that “native” — if you don’t recognize with the go kitchen table from impoverished communal, so will freeze in awe in front of a toy horse, as the children’s father’s pictures, erased Sandstone tiles and seeds in an aluminum bowl. There are in the Suite of the Generalissimo on the flip of a newspaper and a military trench (Hello panorama “Stalingrad battle” in Volgograd), “thaw” a couple at the entrance and standing Pivnyak, the prison corridor with the guard and — well — isn’t this from a song from which a line everyone remembers by heart. Yang Vizinberg, writing exposition, says that six months he and his team collected items for the exhibition, even half of a house from the Belarusian village brought.

Here everything is like in the movies, even better — as in a good movie, because the team that made “the halls…”, consists of filmmakers: the artistic Director was Andrey Ponkratov, who worked on three films Zvyagintsev and one Serebrennikov, light-exposed Vladislav opelyants, filmed as the operator of “Hostages”, “Student”, “12” and “Summer.” The names of the paintings — as signs of quality, the title. The head of the team Yang Vizinberg — creative Director Lorem Ipsum, which has developed, particularly multimedia installations for Yeltsin center in Ekaterinburg. They also removed the “Flying over Moscow” for Zaryadye Park. Work Lorem Ipsum can be seen in the permanent exhibition, EMCT is the updated post-war section, which refers to the defeat of the Jewish anti-fascist Committee and “the doctors”. There is, for example, the camera Lubyanka prison authentic prison door.

the Exhibition, therefore, logically integrated in the permanent exhibition, as part of its continuation. Even if you came to “Corridors…” — is to be curious and to go into a Museum, which, remember there are not only objects, but also revived heroes. In the Suite, they also have the costume designer dressed the characters of the half of the above mentioned films have tried and for the characters in the show, populated by headless monsters (draft “a Ballad about the mannequins” 1975 hanging there on the wall). Instead of the heads of dressed up mannequins — one crowbar, one bottle is clear, but too obvious allusions to the songs of Vysotsky. Each room, I want to say in theatre “the stage”, so detailed that it seems an hour is not enough to consider. Wanted to do a total installation below born, as the Ilya Kabakov, everyone has their own emotions, and turned the film frames. The film frame is held for a second or less: what did you see something and have time, then it froze forever. And for endless contemplation too many details.

the Audience, however enthusiastic. Yeah, someone asked why, in fact, the exhibition at the Jewish Museum, and read the biography and hearing — apparently for the first time, “In Rome were Jews Vysotsky …” — sighs to himself “is he?…” But the joy of recognition wins. Items of interest to visitors is clearly more than the songs, though handwritten drafts of RGALI shed light on the mysteries of writing and many edits — for example “letters to the editor of the TV program “Obvious — improbable” Kanatchikov giving” allows you to imagine how excruciating the process was illusory and ease, which is obvious and audible.

Studying the draft, it is easy to notice that they often covered the pages with the logo of the USSR MORFLOT — of these was the ship’s logs. Drafts of poems written in surprisingly legible handwriting, which is repeated in the table of contents of the book, released for the exhibition: designers edition Andrew Salotto and Irina Chekmareva issued in the form of tape cassettes, such as those in which the country was listening to Vysotsky.

the Book, released in conjunction with EMST Artguide Editions — not an exhibition catalog, and explanation of love and description of the myth. Collected by the literary critic Anna Narinsky “the Book is a tribute to Vladimir Vysotsky” connects articles old and new, from a short essay Joseph Brodsky, recognized Vysotsky “better than any out there Kirsanovich, Mayakovsky” (“I’m talking about his ability, about what he was doing with the language, its rhymes”, — Brodsky wrote), and analysis of “near-death Yamba” (“And below the ice, and the top — toil between…”), conducted the Lion by oborina, to the dandyism of Vysotsky in the presentation of a fashion observer “the businessman” Elena Stafeeva and his machismo, dismantled Vladimir Lekmanov.

the essay “On polusmerti poet” written by another poet Maria Stepanova — the main text that precedes, in turn, “the novel about girls” Vysotsky. This immortal, or not say, article of Natalia Krymova, published in 1989. Vysotsky for nine years as he was in the grave, eventually becoming a legend, matured, frozen, turned into a non-negotiable blocks, taken in the light of ideas about his songs, movies and plays, none of which that particularly bitter, never was shot entirely on film — and this is in 1970-e years! Isolated fragments of “hamlet”, “antimirov”, rehearsals “Pugachev”, perhaps two or three at the disposal of the descendants of the scenes — everything we’ve seen and know.

Natalia Anatolievna Krymova, a prominent historian and theorist of theater of the late Soviet era, and in a sense, and its Creator, a man known for his talent to discover new names and to give a final assessment, once the first wrote publicly about Vysotsky the actor. She, by and large, and closed the subject: “He always gave whole. At the beginning of the end, in the end the memory of the beginning, the middle, the beginning and the end together.” And further: “…He played Lopakhin as if this is not the first Chekhov’s play at the Taganka, and the fifth, once in the Moscow art like all previous experience was that Chekhov”. All this artist writes about Vysotsky in “the Cherry orchard” staged in 1975 at the Taganka her husband, the great Director of the Anatoly Efros, which gave Vysotsky Chekhov. She is talking about a movie and hearing “the hearing of such an acute sense of life”, the absence of the characteristic of the actors of the “ambiguity of play”, which could not Vysotsky to play an alien role. He rearranged them to suit herself, and because it Zheglov and not played by a colorless Concinnum Sharapov became the hero of “the meeting Place cannot be changed” — and it turned out that Govorukhin reinterpreted, distorted served as the basis for his novel.

the Compiler of this book is the dedication gave the word all — or almost all concerned, the living and the dead, from the Cord and Eduard Limonov (“Immaculate man”) to Dovlatov and Lev Losev. If the exhibition, which will run until 23 September, is essentially an introduction to the myth under the name “Vysotsky”, the book reveals the myth and gives a comprehensive view about the place Vysockogo in history and life, showing him exactly how happy some contemporaries saw him alive a I heard and someone’s bound to have heard of it.

Fluttered and stung

Big Boxing returned to Moscow: it here not seen since the fight Alexander Povetkin and Wladimir Klitschko, held in 2013. to Answer the question, who from them the strongest, in the eyes of the public capital was Ukrainian Aleksandr Usik and Russian Murat Gassiev. Both had not lost. “the” — about the outcome of the main fight this year.

as soon As it became clear that the organizers of the finals of the world Boxing series (WBSS) managed to lure Mustache and his team in Moscow, much doubt the venue was an event of this magnitude is able to take not every Metropolitan arena. Almost immediately announced: the fight will take place in “Olympic”.

a few hours before the main event of the evening on the outskirts of the complex was not overcrowded. Girls in gorgeous evening dresses were interspersed with men in hats. Everywhere flags of North Ossetia (which is understandable, because Gassiev is a native of Vladikavkaz), slightly less frequently met in the Russian tricolor. Periodically from the side enthusiasts tried to charge “Only Gassiev, just win!” However, the response from the motley crowd chants did not cause. Gradually, and seemingly reluctantly, the fans went inside.

it Soon became clear why the audience in no hurry to take their places. Inside the “Olympic” it was very hot. And it’s not a figure of speech. The air temperature was close to 30 degrees (and perhaps exceeded, the measure had nothing). The complex was built in 1980, and it seems that since his ventilation wasn’t doing anything. Yes, the “Olympic” holds up to 35 thousand spectators and is the largest indoor arena in Europe, but conditions for safe competition in the heat inside him unbearable. And by the boxers in such a situation is hardly comfortable.

At the same time, in defense of the organizers, we can say that the choice they have, in fact, was not. Indoor stadium of similar capacity in there, “Megasport” and “VTB the Ice Palace” can accommodate thousands at 13-14. New (relatively) stadiums football “Spartacus” and CSKA is not equipped with a roof. It is in Britain, there are 90-thousand “Wembley”. And we have… And we have “Olympic”. Frankly, a little anxious for the first UFC tournament in Moscow, which will be held here in the fall. Hopefully, by September, the heat subsides, and Dana white companions will be satisfied with the arena.

While outside the walls of the stadium going fans inside already there were fights of the main card. In the first fight relationship was found out by the Russian Fedor Chudinov owning a champion belt WBA International in the super Middleweight division, and a little-known Frenchman canister. Boxers have gone full distance, during which, the opponent Chudinov looked brighter and got more and more accurate. It would seem, here it is, the new champion, but the judges decided otherwise: 115:113, 116:112,111:118 in favor of Chudinov. Hall went dissatisfied roar. First had to see how Patriotic boxer Boo at home. Mohammed fans, by contrast, were greeted by applause. Ambiguous (to put it mildly) solution which does not add whists nor the Russian Boxing as a whole, nor Fedor Chudinov in particular.

“are Dissatisfied with their victory, but a victory. I was a little better at the end, but not all did. Not very happy with the way we performed,” said Chudinov in comments after the fight. “Not everything worked out” is putting it mildly, Fyodor.

Next to the ring came the women: the Norwegian champion Cecilia Braekhus and Russia Inna Sahaidakovsky. Both did not know defeats, with the only difference that the first has spent 34 fights, and the second only 7. Before the match there were a lot of words and promises, especially by the hostess of the ring. Sahaidakovsky intended to knock out the 36-year-old opponent, but in fact it turned out otherwise. Experienced Braekhus dominated almost all the time, having missed it for a couple of rounds in the middle of battle. But in the end joined in the final round nearly sent the Russian in the knockout. This time there were no surprises — the unanimous decision of judges has won Brachus.

Then your fight was held the Latvian mairis Briedis, who came to Moscow in the first place to insure the organizers, he was assigned the role of official reserve in case Gassiev or Mustache will not be able to get in the ring. But the son could fight against the Russians in the final without any “but” and “if,” but at the end of January lost to Usyk in the semifinals. Now he had to settle for a Frenchman Brandon deslauriers. Despite the fact that the first was the outright favorite, to show an outstanding Boxing he failed. Deslauriers was playing in defense all 10 rounds, and sometimes even snapped. The result: the first victory of a unanimous decision.

Finally, it’s time for the main fight of the evening. Few people undertook to predict the winner of the confrontation. Quotes on success Gassieva and antennae bookies were practically identical. The only thing the experts agree — the fight will probably last all 12 rounds. In the case of judicial decisions more believed in the victory of the Ukrainians, the chance of the Russians called out.

First in the ring went Gassiev. Murat appeared in the hall by the song “Heart of Ossetians” on the way with a smile and talked with his trainer Abel Sanchez. Mustache also looked quite relaxed. Both stopped in front of the ring and smoke have to pose for television images. In fairness, the footage came out spectacular. Sorry, the temperature in the room is not passed.

the First round started with intelligence. The mustache does not like to go forward, but was forced to take matters into their own hands, too passive was Gassiev. The rivals exchanged several hits on the protection and parted at the corners. In the corner of the Ukrainians, by the way, in addition to a cut-man Russ of Anbar attended Anatoly Lomachenko the father of another Ukrainian champion Vasyl Lomachenko and an experienced coach.

early In the second round Gassieva managed crown reception — side in the liver. Thought the Mustache was even a little shaken, but the Russian success is not developed, and the boxers finished the round at a leisurely pace. In the following period, the Russians continued to aim at the liver of the opponent, but the Tendril wisely kept her distance, using the advantage of reach and mobility. Every time he left the line of fire, and fire intermittently jabs pushing Gassieva.

the Fourth round was under the dictation of the Tendril smoothly until the last seconds. Then Gassieva managed another powerful side, this time in the head. Ukrainian wisely went into a clinch and wait for the Gong. It was obvious that the citizen is embedded in every stroke, trying to decide the outcome of the match is the only hit. But your opponent every time, was faster.

Mustache is constantly moving, knocking the direction of attacks Gassieva. The sixth round was completed under the dictation of the Ukrainian. He is not inflicted to the opponent serious damage, but their active actions did not allow him to get into the rhythm. The seventh round was held in the same vein, and in the eighth Alexander began to invest in the punches to keep the opponent. Was struck by his excellent functional readiness — for the eighth round, it looked very fresh.

In the ninth round Barbel three times surpassed Gassieva in number of shots. The Ukrainians worked on the principle of “the best defense is a good offense”. The barrage of his punches did not give the Murat how to lock on to a target.

Time passed, and the 31-year-old Mustache all are not tired. The Ukrainian maintained a high pace in the championship rounds. He perfectly fulfilled the plan of action, to the maximum using its advantages. Gassiev was not ready for such a moving opponent and managed to rebuild the tactics during the match.

At the end of the 12th round of the Tendril continued to flutter. And even a little show off, a couple of times after retiring from sweeping sledgehammers Gassieva, already thrown randomly in the final seconds. After the bell, the rivals warmly greeted each other and arm in arm walked around the ring, more recently, the former battlefield.

the Tendril deservedly won a unanimous judges ‘ decision (120:108, 119:109, 119:109) and combined belt version of the four major Boxing organizations, becoming the absolute world champion. In addition, he won the trophy name Muhammad Ali and the first ever winner of the tournament WBSS.

After the game, Alexander admitted that he was going to rise in the heavy weight, and Murat Gassiev promised to come back stronger. First defeat in his career he suffered from a worthy opponent, who spent the best fight in his career. Ahead will be many more fights and hopefully more successful than this one.
