A special project of the TERRITORIЯ and the Centre for Healthy
Youth Charity Foundation is a rare but gaining in these latitudes
momentum practice called ‘social theatre’. Several people that
due to the Centre for Healthy Youth rehabilitation programs
got rid of all sorts of fatal addictions are brought together with
a group of contemporary theatre personalities to speak about
difficult path of rescue with their own words in an artistic form.
A special TERRITORIЯ ’s project that continues to explore the
laws of interaction between theatrical action and the space
in which it exists. This year, three author’s teams are ‘landed’
in three different museums where, with just a few days of
rehearsals, the teams will prepare especially for the festival
sketches of performances that reflect the essence of that
frozen-in-time museum space.
The project is curated by Marat Gatsalov
