curator of the educational program

The Educational program has become an integral part of "The Access Point" festival, highlighting the need for the theatrical community to reflect on recent transformations of modern theatre. Over the past ten years, a significant metamorphosis has occurred in the domestic theatrical landscape, largely dictated by the restrictions of state institutions. Thus, the situation when the young generation was doomed to risk returned life to the theatre. Independent theatre associations became the foundation upon which the quantity and the quality of social, site-specific, documentary projects (and, of course, their modifications) grew and the word "experiment" lost its meaning. The question "why is it theatre?" has almost disappeared from the current agenda, and the right to be considered a theatre was won back by any event created for the audience. On the one hand, modern theatre demonstrates the willingness to work with the new technologies, on the other, it seeks opportunities for direct communication with and among the audience. It is no coincidence that today the already created performance is replaced by something that unfolds through a process and participatory, and the hierarchical system of its production is replaced by horizontal. The boundaries between different kinds of art are also becoming blurred. Obviously, there will be more and more interdisciplinary projects in the near future.

However, it is easier to sense tectonic shifts having only the experience of an academic school, than to put them into practice or develop tools for analyzing such difficult to fixate matter. The idea of the Educational program-2019 was born from the request for new competencies. It will allow both practitioners and theorists to gain first-hand knowledge. People with undying curiosity and sensitivity to a rapidly changing reality are invited to give lectures and organize master classes in St. Petersburg. The festival invites everyone to attend the lectures. The master classes will be held for 60 lucky participants who have passed a rigorous competitive selection. After the large group study, participants will form teams to create projects within the site-specific laboratory, which is the second stage of the Educational program. Symbolically, the program will be held in The Herzen State University. The sketches will be created and shown here, in the most unexpected spaces. The future will become closer.
