The Art of Artistic Light and Artistic Sound

At present we create a Theatre. A new kind of Theatre. A theatre of synthetic forms.

A theatre where Artistic Light and Artistic Sound are to be given a new quality.

This also means that Artistic Light and Artistic Sound will occupy a prominent place in the new Theatre.

We can encounter here all the elements accepted by traditional theatre.

Though the starting-point is quite different:

Artistic Light and Artistic Sound lie in the basis of dramaturgy.

Hence, a different thinking of a director, a different scenography, a different play of actors and, as a result, a different atmosphere of a performance.

Artistic Light and Artistic Sound blend in a single entity. Their indissoluble connection has purely natural origins: the first days of the existence of Man and Universe. There is not a phenomenon in the surrounding space which is connected with light and sound separately. Light phenomena always lie in the basis of sound ones. While sound phenomena carry light ones along. The other side of this issue is that theatrical light, or rather lighting technology, is far behind in its development.

The creation and application of light and sound scenography originates in the 20th century, the time when the electric light bulb was invented, causing a rapid development of lighting technology and electronics.

The birth of new artistic forms, the emergence of a director with a modern kind of thinking, should not come as a surprise at the threshold of the third millennium, as the whole artistic systems are synthesized. Within their frames any combinations become possible...

On the basis of accidental nature, that, nevertheless, has an absolutely objective conformity to natural laws.
