THE NEW WORLD. CHARITY FAIR
The project is organized by the festival “Territory” and a German festival “Nordwind”. It is a series of three theatricalized discussions. These are not plays, even though the discussions intend to contain elements of a show, as well as are not just regular gatherings-discussions. It’s something in between – a genre, familiar more to a tv-audience, rather than to playgoers. “Territory” festival was always interested with cross-disciplinary projects, now the time has also come for that kind of a genre experiment.
As far as the project is Russian-German, each discussion is focused on representatives of our countries. Only moderator is going to be the same – Konstantin Bogomolov, who has long been known not only as one of the leaders of a modern Russian stage direction, but also as a brilliant showman.
Topics of the three nights are banded with a concept which is essential for the era of globalisation – a free market. It is seen as a universal mean of a mutual exchange not only of goods, but also of ideas, emotions and world views…
The first night
Providing disinterested help to those in need has long become one of the basic development’s parameters in a civil society. At the same time some questions remain unanswered: up to which extent must (may) a society take over the functions of the state, what is a role of a public figure in the charity movement, why actors often become heads of charitable funds?
