Several meetings with writers and directors took place today.
As part of the literary programme, a writer and a playwright Yevgenia Nekrasova presented her collection of short stories and poems "House Love" and the literary series "Skin".
There was also a creative meeting with the director and the People's Artist of Russia Joseph Raikhelgauz. He is the laureate of many prestigious theatre awards, the founder and the artistic director of the Moscow theatre the "School of Modern Drama".
The second showing of the performance of this theatre took place in the evening of June 10th. The idea, composition, staging — all is by Dmitry Krymov. The performance "Everyone is here" is based on one of the most famous plays by Thornton Wilder "Our Town", which won him the Pulitzer Prize.
The fate and personalities of the characters of this performance were discussed between the spectators of Platonov arts festival and Sergey Nikolaevich — a journalist, a writer, and an editor-in-chief of the SNOB project, the author and the host of the "Cultural Exchange" programme, as well as the author of several books.
The second showing of the performance "The Idiot" by the "Stary Dom" theatre from Novosibirsk was also held. Before that, the theatre director Andrey Prikotenko met with the guests of the festival. Since 2017, he has been the chief director of the theatre and has been nominated for the "Golden Mask" Award several times.
Video screenings of the performances from the programme of the German theatre festival Theatertreffen began with a resounding success. The first of them was of the production "Odyssey" — a mind-blowing farce, a sparkling clownery on the topic of one of the most famous and controversial heroes of world culture. It is interesting that this fantasy does not even require words — the performance is in an invented language, and therefore is understandable to everyone. Antu Romero Nunez is one of Germany's most sought-after middle-generation directors. All video screenings of Platonovfest are held within the framework of the "Year of Germany in Russia 2020/2021".
The three exhibitions of the festival continue to delight art lovers at the Exhibition Hall on 8, Kirov street and at the Kramskoy’s Art Museum. We remind you that Platonov Arts Festival for the first time in Voronezh presents an exhibition of works by the artists of the "Jack of Diamonds" — a creative association that began the history of the Russian avant-garde. In the same place, in the Kramskoy’s Art Museum, there is also an exhibition of works by Arkady Shaikhet, a famous photographer, a renowned master of "truthful" reflection of Soviet reality. At the Exhibition Hall on 8, Kirova street you will find the exhibition "Substance of Existence. Victoria and Pavel Nikonov. Painting".
