They think they are fulfilling their function well if everything on stage is as it is in reality. 62 He called for a stylised theatre. Stanislavski, however, maintained that the Art Theatre had never sought naturalism on the stage. The aim was always what he called ‘spiritual realism’, an inner rather than an ‘outer’ truth. Unfortunately, Bryusov’s article in many ways set the terms of the debate for years to come. He had labelled the Art Theatre ‘naturalistic’, and the label stuck. 63 Others followed Bryusov’s lead and attacked the Art Theatre.

Pauses A significant innovation in the production of The Seagull consisted in the use of pauses. 27 But pauses were also used to create the ‘mood’ and reveal the ‘sad, monotonous life’ of the characters. In Act IV, for example, when Polina is talking to Masha about Treplev, we can hear him playing the piano off-stage. Stanislavski noted: A pause. Ten seconds – they make the bed. The sounds of the piano can be heard very distantly. 28 The ‘pause’ here – the silence, followed by stillness – makes it a moment charged with significance.

On one occasion, he famously declared: You say you have cried at my plays. And you are not the only ones. But that is not why I wrote them, it was Alekseev [Stanislavski] who turned them into cry-babies. I wanted something else. ’ The important thing is, that people should understand this, and when they understand it, they will, without fail, create for themselves another and better life.
