An Alternative History of Theatre
A lecture series organized with Theatre magazine. The lectures will be devoted to an alternative history of Russian theatre, the first research of which first appeared in the magazine's issue No. 33. Lectures are devoted to some of the most important figures of “unofficial” Russian/Soviet culture - from Igor Terentyev to Yevgeny Shiffers.
Yevgeny Kharitonov: Why the Flower Caught Cold
The hero of this lecture is a poet, prose writer, author of plays and scripts, the director of the Last Chance performance group, and a pantomime teacher who used movement to treat the ailment of stuttering. This is just a cursory list of who Yevgeny Kharitonov (1941-1981) was and what he did. His poems and prose were not published during his lifetime - the two-volume collection Tears on Flowers and Under House Arrest were published posthumously and became bibliographic rarities immediately upon publication. This lecture addresses the phenomenon of Yevgeny Kharitonov and some of those who surrounded him.
