XI International Theatre Forum 'M.@rt Contact' underway in Mogilev

Mogilev is hosting the XI International Theatre Forum Mart Contact. This youth project opens with the drama The Lower Depths.

The new production of the Belarusian director Igor Kazakov is unusual in its shape, artistic design and content. In fact, this is search for a new theatrical language with the use of modern technologies. Enhancing the visual effect is the fact that dolls are "working" on the stage on a par with actors. Heroes of the play will try to find answers to the eternal questions of life and death.

Another no less eccentric project with puppets, which viewers will see at the forum is the play "The Master and Margarita" by the Polish theater.

All in all, the 2016 edition of the forum will feature 20 productions from 9 countries: Belarus, Russia, Poland, Armenia, Germany and beyond. Most of them are premieres.

Nina Mazur, member of the International Association of Theatre Critics, member of the German Center of the International Theatre Institute:
The organizers of "Mart Contact" have managed to create highly festival artistic. This is the first thing. And the second is that they have created a poster for the festival, which even professionals look at with pleasure.

Anna, participant (Poland):
It is necessary to raise good artists, good directors and actors. And this kind of festival creates a good soil for theater development.
