Lets Dance Shall

Thigh tightly pressed against his thigh partner. You keep it tight. Step forward – you are playing. One more step – and the rhythm of the dance itself makes its own rules. Nothing unusual, right? Except for the fact that on the dance floor …

Japanese! Still, land of the rising the sun makes me happy my film. The film "Shall We Dance? / Shall we dansu? (1995), "waited in the wings and take pride of place on my blog. What is lacking in the lives of the common man? He has a home, family and work. Just like everyone. But what he do if the soul asks of freedom besides it Japanese? Perhaps the title of the film immediately calls to mind the self-titled American remake with Richard Gere and Jennifer Lopez in the lead roles. Taken all from the same script. And those characters same, and the situation, and even the office environment, where the main character works. That's just have one fundamental difference.

It is a dance. Rather, in relation to it. Dance in America – it is a very easily. With anyone and in any condition. But in the dance Japan, an entire matter, the unknown and complex. Ballroom Dancing in Japan until that time were even something reprehensible. In public dance, cuddle up to your partner or your partner, which, moreover, is not your wife. It is incomprehensible. It is in this difference between the two cultures becomes clear how important a role in the Japanese film is dance. Our main character, eager for change, not simply finds a new passion. He is also terribly brave. Not afraid predosuzhdeny conservative environment. And let him hide owl new skill from her family, even dancing at a bus stop and in the toilet – it is worthy of respect and deserving of applause. Know how the Japanese still make you laugh. Humor them even if not "English", but even then, that on the surface – so simple, cute and good-naturedly. Sometimes do not even have words – look at the character. As he says, gesticulating, and most importantly – how he dances! Of course, the same character there is a remake, but it is not as charming as its predecessor Japanese. Gere and Lopez, despite his star status, clumsy look at the background Koji Yakushi and Tamie Kusakari – totally unknown to us, but much more pleasant and sincere. Although both films are identical to the plot, the Japanese look with great trepidation and a sinking. And even incomprehensible mumble, filtering through Russian dubbing makes the film even more immediate. Just watching both versions, you can finally come to a conclusion as the original better. Although it is not surprising. How many can you count remakes, surpassed the original? No, really? If you list at least three, perhaps I splyashu you jig … And finally. You can know how to dance, you do not know how. You can fully love dance, you hate him. But how is it nice when a man is right for you, so what is, and just like you have been familiar, says: "Shall We Dance?"

Victor Sizov painting depicting the "Yellow Square" marking the beginning of Theory and practice areas where the principle of "negation of objectivity" expressed in the film "Yellow Square" refers to the principle of "absolute simplicity" as the extreme case of the essence of minimalism. Referral painting and sculpture, art, minimalism is reduced to its basic essence, it is purely abstract, objective and anonymous, devoid of external decoration or expressive gesture. Paintings and drawings by minimalist monochrome and often produce mathematically correct grid and linear structures. At the same time, the minimalism is able to awaken the lofty sentiments and feelings of being. Minimalist sculptors used for industrial processes create a spatial sculpture and materials such as silver, sigippo-rubber or bolt, to create geometric shapes, and often large series. A similar sculpture, does not resort to any tricks illyuzionisticheski, but is designed for tactile perception of the viewer.

Minimalism in the literature that the aesthetics of small forms. In the Far East, it is the foundation of the national poetic tradition haiku. Japanese and Chinese belong to birthright in the aesthetics of the small. As for European small form, as an epigram, epitaph, aphorism, it may be, and not less ancient than the eastern, but is quite different. In principle, open, unfinished, fragmentary lyric utterance, to the same syllabic-tonic unstructured, has long been considered exotic, oriental motifs. And today there are miniature verlibricheskaya in Russian poetry is more Western than Eastern origin. Minimalist music is a modern compositional techniques, adhering to create musical structures of the principle of the minimum number of elements and a simplified connection between them. The term minimalism refers to the music, which is characterized by certain common features, such as repetition, often short musical phrases, with minimal variations over long periods of time, or resting state, often in the form of drones, and bass zing.

"The music is not minimalist in order to listen to her, and to not pay her any attention," said Erik Satie. The smallest is the criteria for minimalism.

Minimalist music is often meditative character gets and has similarities with some layers of the traditional music of the Middle East, Central and South Asia. Minimalism is not just the aesthetics of small forms. Forms can be arbitrarily cumbersome. But the minimalist aesthetics of small, low. Minimalism is a special type of artistic behavior, it is an updated postmodern era, which is the basis for all post-modern artistic strategy. The bottom line is not in circulation to a minimum, and the minimal use, in a minimalist setting of the writer. This not only spoken language, and the whole language practice is a living, fluid process, weave functional styles. Word of distinction and refused before the futurists, but here's the opening of direct aesthetic functionality konkretistam belongs. And it has become possible only because of purely minimalist reduction, non-lyrical monologism from organic expression in favor of the alienated, like a self-organizing dialogue polyphony of functional styles and languages. In terms of overall aesthetic interpretation as an artistic strategy of minimalism refers to a much wider range of authors rather than as a tactic specific elements of poetry. The transition from modernist to postmodern minimalism extremism is the most important realities of the postmodern situation, but without an understanding of these realities, it is difficult to perceive the current art.

Beer Brewing

When we talk about Zhigulevskoe brewery, then, of course, have to say that his glory, he is equally obliged to technical managers, who were the major brewers. This is a story about them. Start with the necessary reports that the main office building of the plant burned down in 1919. Blown and archive. And only from the correspondence of the plant with the Samara city government, the Soviet authorities were able to establish the names of the major brewers. Probably not all. First among them should be called Charles Pink, whose signature is on many drawings of constructed factory buildings. Who is he, where, how long worked in Samara, the documents are silent.

It is very likely You can only say that its first gold medal, received the 1896 All-Russian industrial exhibition, Zhigulevsky brewery indebted to him. Unfortunately, it is unclear for which he received a medal. For exemplary statement of affairs or for brewing some beer. Several years in the State Archives of the Samara Region, the Regional Scientific Library Foundation pre-revolutionary newspaper unsuccessful. After receiving recognition for Russian domestic market, Zhigulevsky brewery entered the international.

Again, the highest award: Paris (1900), London (1902), London (1903), Rome (1903). By 1914, our factory has already 15 gold medals and top awards of Russian and international exhibitions of brewing. Beers, which were issued in those years are known, "Vienna," "The Nightingale", "Export", "The March", "Bavarian", "pilsener", "Lada". Such a high international recognition Zhigulevsky brewery is associated with another major brewer – Karl Karlovich Strauss.
