Behind the scenes

Description of the artwork «Behind the scenes»

The idea of this work was born in my head a long time ago, however, the mood did not fit the implementation of the plan and there was no time. Recently I got into a situation where I had to try on the role of an actress. The hardest task, to be honest. Acting has never been my strong point, I was not eager to play on stage as a child, now nothing has changed. And what fate has prepared for me once again confirmed me in the idea that playing on stage is not my business. But! Having come into contact with this sphere of creativity, I realized how difficult this profession is. Each time going on stage, or filming takes in front of the camera, the actor must step over his own emotions and thoughts, mood, perhaps even worldview, leaving them deep inside in order to live the role that is written in the script. I can't imagine how people do it. Forget who you really are, showing only what you have to show. It is fun and carefree to play when the soul is sad, or vice versa ... Somewhere to put your good mood in order to play a dramatic role. And after the shooting day, how can you get this good mood, trampled by a sad role? How not to be, as if in the lines of Vysotsky: "Suddenly the harlequin will become sad forever, admiring his own sad face?"
So in this portrait: a sad clown, tired after a working day, the role is over. Only the make-up remained after the fun on the stage, and in the eyes - longing and fatigue. He gave fun to others, but left the sadness for himself ...
