4th. MyMime, after festival reflection.
One week after the festival ends, my mind still running through the events, faces artistic and organization matters. First of all- I must thank all people who worked hard to make it all possible, and those who get involved into festival logistic structure- it was enormous amount of work, which often not visually makes the whole system flow.
So, Thanks to artistic director of Theatre “Zazerkalie” Alexander Petrov, administrative director Amir Mustakhimov and all administrative and technical crew, housing the festival with 8 performances and more then 50 participants. Thanks to Russian State Institute of Performing arts, a specially: International department with Yulia Kleiman, Xenia Volkova, pro-rector Nikolai Pesochinski, press attaché Vladimir Kantor and, of course all of our beautiful baby sitters- volunteers, who took tare of foreign visitors (Kristina Martikainen, Polina Vasilieva, Olessia Markova, Anastasia Smirnova, Varvara Brovina, Rosa Shklyarova, Diana Shihalieva, Elisaveta Gotsdiner, Xenia Krylova, Maria Hersonova).
For myself and lots of people, I spoke with- it was one of unforgettable experience full of bright and positive memories. We staged and we’ve seen a lot of great students performances from 4 different schools, we had 6 master- classes fully packed with the young audience. Everything runs as it couldn’t possibly be any better ( might be just a little)
Only the last bit of the story – drops a spoon of tar into the barrel of honey. 4 of the teachers from Berlin had their Russian visas for 50 minutes expires during transition in Moscow Sherementevo airport. We just had wrong people in this day! Absolute A.H. !!!
And we spent 18 hours in the terminal (what makes many scenes of Vogelperspekive – very sensual). Finally we all safely back and even those people on the Russian border couldn’t spoil the positive aftertaste of the festival.
Ones again- thank you- all people who took part or help. Hope to see you again.
