Meet-the-artist sessions

16+

During the week before the demonstration of each performance of the “Saint Petersburg Theatre Seasons” program, the audience will be enjoying the meet-the-artist sessions with the production teams involved in the performances – actors, directors, artists. All these sessions will be accompanied by an introduction – a concise historical background, devoted to the plays and their crucial embodiments at the stage. Almost all the texts that have become the basis of the festival’s performances this year are the classics. And each such meeting should not only tell the story of working over a certain performance, but also help the audience to observe the play within its historical scenic background. 

The meet-the-artist sessions will take place in the Theatre museum, the collection of which is comprised of rare items, connected with the history of the Russian theatre from XVIII to XX centuries, in the space, that encourages studying.

The meetings will be hosted by Alexander Platunov, Ph.D. in Art history, a theatre critic, member of the nomination council of the supreme Saint Petersburg theatre prize “Zolotoy Sofit”.
