The festival organized by The State Youth Drama Theater “From the Street of Roses” and with the support of the Russkiy Mir Foundation and the Embassy of Russia in Moldova, has taken place in Chişinău 0n 21-27 November. The festival united theater groups from 13 countries.

“Everything was organized really good; there were no serious issues, all of the expected participants arrived. Everything was organized according to a program: there were tours, workshops and meetings of the art club,” – said Alina Shishkina, Director of the art festival.

Nadezhda Aksyonova, theater historian and employee of the Institute of Cultural Heritage of the Academy of Sciences of Moldova, believes the festival showed two trends.

“There were two main trends: assertion of the Russian classic traditional theater, this was accomplished by “From the Street of Roses” theater and their works Dear Yelena Sergeyevna, Kantor, and Flowers for Algernon, and of course by Novechento performed by the Boris Shchukin Theatre Institute. The second trend is represented by productions of the new authors with regard to the post-drama,” – marks Aksyonova.

Elfrida Koloryova, Arts PhD and researcher at the Institute of Cultural Heritage of the Academy of Sciences of Moldova, believes that through such festivals participants and the audience can see the world from a new angle, through the theatrical art. Korolyova also highlights that the main topics of the festival were “The Man and the Society” and “The Man with Disabilities”.

All productions were about the world and a person’s place there, about his or her social status and psychological issues. Especially, this was visible in productions by Kharmelin, who is often called Director-Psychologist.
