The first traveling festival from independent theaters will take place in Nikolskiye Ryady

On October 17 and 18, the first mobile festival of non-state theaters in St. Petersburg will take place on the territory of the Nikolskiye Ryady complex. Among the participants are theaters-laureates of numerous festivals and awards: "Puppet Format", "Doll House", Karlsson Haus, "Osobnyak", Theater "Behind the Black River", "Open Space", "Yana Tumina's Theater Laboratory", "Comedian -trest "," Tsekh "," Such a theater ", the Vokrug theater, the Kraft theater and the Heavenly carousel.

Performances for children and adults will be held in the cozy hall of the mobile tent and in the open air.

St. Petersburg is rightfully considered a city of theatrical underground: in addition to federal and city theaters, about 50 non-state theater groups of various genres have been successfully working here for a long time, more than in any other region of the country. Many of these teams represent St. Petersburg at the most prestigious international and national theater shows.

Most of these theaters do not have their own site and lead a nomadic life. Today, in especially difficult times for the theater, St. Petersburg independent theaters decided to unite in order to organize their own open stage, an independent platform, which will help to draw attention to the activities of non-state theaters in St. Petersburg and reach a wide audience. Such a platform will be a mobile tent "without permanent registration", embodying the idea of ​​a traveling festival of independent theaters in St. Petersburg.

The first festival will take place on the territory of the renovated and comfortable Nikolsky rows. This is a public space with food courts, playgrounds, and lounge areas in the historic center of St. Petersburg next to Nikolsky Cathedral and the Kryukov Canal embankment. The organizers plan to hold an annual traveling festival, both in St. Petersburg and in the Leningrad region.

Organizers: Anna Pavinskaya, director of the Karlsson Haus theater; Alla Danishevskaya, director of the Open Space Theater; Sonya Durova, Director of Yana Tumina's Theater Laboratory.

The organizers would like to express their special gratitude to: Theater "Na Liteiny" and personally to Sergei Morozov for technical support; public space "Nikolskie Ryady" for providing the site; as well as all the festival participants who have contributed to the organization of this project.
