So, over the years, this programme gave viewers a unique opportunity to communicate with the directors of the leading Russian theatres: Lev Dodin, Rimas Tuminas, Yuri Butusov, Dmitry Krymov and Konstantin Raikin; and Voronezh students and ballet dancers - were able to take part in the workshops by world-famous companies, including the Ballet Preljocaj and the Batsheva Dance Company.
