Contemporary Positions of Russian Art

Festivalprogramm Download

In January 2020, HELLERAU – European Centre of the Arts will present contemporary Russian positions of theatre, performing arts and music in a festival. The spectrum ranges from New Drama to music theatre, performances, documentary theatre, installations, films, lectures, discussions and mediation formats. HELLERAU collaborates with various Russian artistic production sites in Moscow and St. Petersburg, but also outside these two metropolises in Kazan, Novosibirsk, Krasnodar and Rostov-on-Don. From theatres, cultural centres, underground venues and festivals, it is above all theatre makers, performers, artists of the younger generation who come to Dresden.

A special role is played by the Russian-German exchange on artistic and socio-political themes such as the relationship between art and the public, the present-day Soviet history and the perception of contemporary theatre positions from an aesthetic and political point of view. By means of residencies and artist forums, the festival will offer a platform for the exchange of artists and cultural actors beyond the artistic programme and invites to an exchange forum with representatives of independent Russian production houses and collectives.
