“We change not only the name, but also the format. The elaboration of a strategy that we formulate for ourselves as a theatre, where there is a place for development and where the creators together with the audience create a common theatre space – we feel that this activity for 1.5 years was truly successful. We see that the invitation of Alexander Yanushkevich, Yura Divakov, Dmitry Bogoslavsky and Anton Makukha builds the concept whereby we form a repertoire. Therefore, switching to the status of the theater seems timely and important. I would like to think that our activity causes a reaction in everyone who deal with it – as if you got electrically shocked. We are for light and shiver. An electric current is a flow that transfers energy – this metaphor is also very close to us. We want to talk to our audience, it is important to us how they will perceive every event”, – Alexander Marchenko, project monitor and director, comments on the development of the project.
