artistic director of the theater “Actor,” theater producer, founder of the theater school “Sverkhzadacha” (“Supertask”)
“Actor” is a drama theater in Kyiv. “The conglomerate of our theatrical activity can be divided into two vectors: social and educational. Now it’s all online services. “Actor” theater began to put out materials with free access and perform plays online. The main idea of our business is that everyone can feel involved in art and become a direct participant in the action.” Despite all the limitations and the impossibility of performing live, the theater does not stop its activities and learns to mimicry into new realities. Temporarily, of course. The main challenge was to reassemble offline projects into online during the quarantine because theater is a living art, and live emotions cannot be transmitted through the screen of gadgets. We coped with these tasks, mimicked under the proposed circumstances. We are preparing the premiere (June 16) of a gamified play in Zoom with the National Artist of Ukraine Oleksiy Vertynsky and the troupe of the Mr. Butterfly Theater, where the audience will participate and influence the plot by voting. Of course, all this is not a desirable return to offline life, but only a slowdown, but by no means the closure of the business.
