16 September 2020
The performances Transsib and V.E.R.A. by Dmitry Brusnikin Workshop nominated for 1 MAP, will be shown on September 18 and 20, as was announced at the press conference in Lecture Hall of Nature Center.
Now besides the exhibition projects of the 1st MAP nominees, you can see theatrical projects in the park. The play Transsib is the result of the creative group journey by train on Moscow–Vladivostok route. It was an attempt to go through “the difficult path from one person to another”. The play V.E.R.A. dedicated to the country’s poetic life at the end of the Thaw. “I am pleased that I am one of the authors of this play, we wrote it together with Andrei Rodionov. A special feature of this production is a unique genre — poetic verbatim. We took real documents and rhymed them, made a funny poetic text (or moderately funny, it always turns out differently). The production will be adapted for Zaryadye,”said Ekaterina Troepolskaya, the director of Brusfest festival.
As part of the presentation of the award nominees, the park will also show the documentary project “Before and After” of the Brusnikin’s Workshop and the Territoria Foundation. This is a production about people, who have dedicated their lives to theater. To create this performance, the actors together with playwright Mikhail Durnenkov, spent several months talking and walking with lonely and forgotten veterans of the stage.
“The Brusnikin's Workshop has been repeatedly named the best theater troupe in the country, a special feature of which is adaptation to a variety of venues. This is not a theater that plays only behind a velvet curtain. We were very pleased to know that Brusfest submitted a number of its events for the 1 Moscow Art Prize and was among its nominees, which gave us the opportunity to present a number of performances by the Brusnikin’s Workshop to a wide audience. Some of these performances have become truly iconic. This is a great opportunity to see them again. I don’t think anyone else will have it in the near future,” said Ivan Lykoshin, the head of the department of cultural events in Zaryadye Park, a member of the expert council of the Moscow Art Prize.
All performances are free, but registration is required.
