Stanislavsky Electrotheatre: Synergy and Alchemy of Performing Arts in Moscow
November 28, 2016 12:30

The Electrotheatre is not just a theater, but a museum and a popular meeting venue for cultural exchange as well. It stands on three pillars: the Electrotheatre cinema hall, the Stanislavsky Opera and Drama Studio and the Stanislavsky Theater, which used to be here before.
Having inherited the name from the first "pillar" and ideology from the two others, the new theatrical project of Moscow has turned into a space where arts synthesize with each other like chemical elements in one flask. This process of alchemy is headed by the stage director and teacher Boris Yukhananov, who won the competition of ideas on cultural revival and reconstruction of the Stanislavsky Drama Theater in 2013. The process being his main concept, he turns the theater into the centre of gravity and assembly for various arts, including cinema, concert, performance and a few others.

The Stanislavsky Electrotheatre welcomes all comers — be it for a cup of coffee in the foyer or for hours-long fantasy opera, or even taking part in some performance. However the electrozone does not position itself merely as a time pass venue: visitors should be ready for work! According to Boris Yukhananov, that is the intense work of perceiving modern art.

Stage plays of the Electrotheatre are based on synergy of the traditions of Russian repertoire theater and modern trends. Here radicalism adjoins traditional forms, while young and talented directors, choreographers, artists and composers become the authors of performances. By the way, the theatre pays special attention to cooperation with them as a tradition tribute, since an opera studio used to work here before.
The repertoir of the Stanislavsky Electrotheatre includes both academic music concerts and the electronic performances, which splash beyond the auditorium borders. Photo exhibitions, video art presentations and lectures about art,  as well as film screenings, film discussion and even dancing workshops are regularly held here in addition to music sessions.
Besides, the Stanislavsky Theater runs an educational project under the title School of Modern Viewer and Listener. It is designed for those willing to study and understand modern art.

The Stanislavsky Electrotheatre is located at the address 23, Tverskaya Street, next to the Tverskaya, Pushkinskaya, and Chekhovskaya metro stations, Moscow.
