The exhibition of theatre artists from the United States is presented in Moscow for the first time.

Bakhrushin Central Theatre Museum (SCTM) hosts the exhibition of contemporary American theatre artists for the first time, as the press service of Bakhrushin SCTM reports. The exhibition includes the works of two dozens of stage designers who are well-known in the United States, the works reflect their attitude towards the events of recent years, beginning from 2007.

The official opening of the exhibition called “At the Edge” (“Na Krayu”) took place on July 9 in the Luzhnetsky Hall of the museum. “These papers were prepared for the Prague Quadrenniale of 2011” - the curator Igor Rusanoff  who brought these exhibits to the Bakhrushin Museum explained. “Hollywood and Broadway performances are famous most of all In Russia. We wanted to show different stage designers. Actually, American artists working for contemporary theatre are most of all interested in social, racial, political problems. The works reflect their attitude to the events of recent years, problems and consequences associated with natural disasters, wars and religious conflicts”.

According to the curator’s words, one of the exhibition participants Pat Olezhko in the “Banyayskaya Sea Odyssey” performance interprets the mythology of different cultures and its influence on the world view of modern people. Another artist, Mike Meyer, in the “American Idiot” performance refers to very recent events in Iraq. 

“In addition to the photos of models, the exhibition will feature two installations” – Rusanoff said. “One of them is a huge doll “Dinosaur of War”, taller than a man, eating people. Besides, a film presenting fragments of performances decorated by the exhibitors working in repertory theatres and private theatre companies of the U.S. and Europe, will be shown within the framework of the exhibition.

“The visitors of Bakhrushin Museum will learn the style of American theatre artists working in various genres. Nancy Keystone refers to video-art in the “Apollo” performance and tells the story of the United States, dating back to the beginning of the American Civil War, to the Nazi Germany and the American South of the 1960s. The theatre group PHAMALy works in the sector of social theatre, involving people with disabilities as actors and musicians. “At the Edge” is a frank and critical view of American theatre artists to contemporary realities”- the curator said. “All of them feel pity for what is happening now in Ukraine and commiserate with all victims and those who lost their loved ones. They all support a peaceful resolution of the conflict in Ukraine”. “At the Edge” exhibition is open for a wide audience from July 10 to August 17.
