“St. Petersburg Theatre Seasons” Festival has become an annual cross-cultural project, which is meant to build and develop cultural relations between St. Petersburg and other cities and art centers in the world.
We show performances of St. Petersburg theatres, have discussions about art directors and art professionals who work in the cultural capital. Our Festival has been working since 2007.
During these 15 years the performances of “St. Petersburg Theater Seasons” have been shown in Prague, Berlin, Tel Aviv, Marseille, Milan, Athens and many other cities. In different times the most prominent theatres of the city took part in the festival. These were Alexandrinsky Theater, Lensoviet Theatre, “Priyut Komedianta”, Bolshoy Puppet Theatre, Tovstonogov Bolshoi Theatre and many others.
These days we are online.
In two years of the universal lockdown, we came to understand how to make yourself comfortable at home: we can meet friends, invite dear guests to cook together. We learned to enjoy watching performances with our children (What if your children happen to be reluctant readers and jib academic programs?). We can get together with our friends for a hot dinner, order pizza and turn on our video player. We can watch drama shows wearing pajamas. No need to go out.
Classics does not require anything from us and at the same time it is so understandable. Classics neither requires us buying red caviar sandwiches nor wearing our Sunday best.
