CONCENTRATE. DIRECTOR AS PERSONA
- This year the “School of TEART” is focused on the director’s persona — on responsibility, the area of professional attention and social position.
- We invite you to discuss the possibilities of self-realization, working conditions in state theatres and on alternative venues together with directors Dmitry Bogoslavsky, Igor Kazakov and Alexander Yanushkevich.
- The spectacle «Duplet» and a conversation with the director Konstantine Abashidze will provide an opportunity to find out under what conditions directors work in the Georgian theatre, what topics excite our colleagues and what role directors play in composition of repertoire.
- The master class of Polish director Wojtek Ziemilski and the director's laboratory of Swiss director Denis Maillefer are aimed to develop competence, special skills, professional knowledge and outlook of young directors working in Belarusian theatres. We hope that these events will delight the “advanced” spectators both with the final sketches created within the laboratory and the possible production of performances in the future.
