Film and theater director, artistic director of "Gogol-center"
It is very important now to consider a theater as a city-forming enterprise and to show its value including for the economical purposes. Changes that have been happening in recent years in the field of theater are well traced by the example of "Gogol-center", which for a couple of seasons has turned into a brand new independent cultural entity. At the Forum, we will show a special theater program, consisting from passages of performances "Nine", "Dead Souls", "The hunting of the Snark", "Spring Awakening" and others. I believe that the Moscow Cultural Forum is a major event. Any conversation about the culture, I'm sure, contributes to "softening of customs."
