The programme of the Platonov Festival traditionally also has a lot of free events - creative meetings, master classes, open rehearsals, exhibitions and other events. Their schedule will be announced later.
The anniversary festival will open with a spectacular show of vertical dance "Giant" performed by the Italian street theatre Il Posto. The facade of the Azimut hotel will turn into a real scene. In addition to choreography, video projections and live music are used in an extreme and emotional performance. Entrance to this performance is free for spectators.
Another large-scale free event is the Theatre Parade, beloved by many spectators. Street theatres from France, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Germany, Russia and Kazakhstan will take part in one of the most popular and spectacular events of the festival.
After a two-year break, the legendary Kommuna festival art center will resume its work, located in the building of the former printing house of the Voronezhskaya Kommuna newspaper, for which the young journalist Andrei Platonov wrote the texts.
