New European Theatre
International Festival

November 2-8, 1998.

Net is the Russian word for "No". We have chosen this as the title of the festival to suggest a challenge thrown into the face of theatre and the world. But really, our objective is purely positive. We believe that the new European theatre is not a myth, but a reality, and we want to give Russian spectators a chance to feel it for themselves.

We are also fully aware of the fact that this reality is hard to catch, especially in the context of Russian theatre. The euphoria of "perestroika" in the 80s, the creation of the first professional theatre-studios, "Creative Workshops" and the Lefortovo Games festival, was followed by the dull routine. The most promising theatre directors still found themselves on the outskirts of the theatre process. They failed to find their own place in the dramatically changing world. Our aim is to help them find their audiences to drag some of them back to the limelight again. Our second task is to present young European directors to Moscow audiences above all East-European countries; with which ties have been broken or less developed.

There will be an international seminar of young directors who made a loud splash in recent years. The seminar is called Slavyansky Bazar-101 and is a logical outcome of the last year`s theatre conference held in the Moscow Art Theatre. It was the time when the best Russian and foreign directors came together to discuss the fruit of the one hundred years` existence of this profession. It seems to us that now it is time to give the floor to young people. This is our first festival. We hope you will be kind enough to lend us your support and forgive us for hoping that this is not the last time we ask you to help us!
