DESCRIPTION

This performance was originally produced to mark the fiftieth anniversary of Moscow’s legendary Taganka Theater and was only performed only four times, in 2014. The design is based on the theater’s interior and the performance examines the inconsistency of memory. Here it will resonate with the Museum’s building, originally constructed in 1968.

1968: New World, by artist and theater director Dmitry Volkostrelov within a , is a collage of well-known and forgotten texts selected in the course of extensive research into 1960s literature, cinema, theater, and music. It was performed for the first time at Moscow’s Taganka Theater as part of the Anniversary year project. At Garage, the play will be transformed into a large-scale performance based on texts from popular Soviet magazines such as Novy Mir [New World]Foreign LiteratureThe Art of Cinema, and Theater, which documented the Soviet sixties. 1968: New World was Volkostrelov's first major stage production, and it keeps its urgency

A sensitive and meticulous researcher, he managed to elicit the real “noise of time” from the surviving documents and to reveal both the era's meaning and its influence on us today.
