Theater of Nations in Moscow
September 26, 2016 16:47

The Theatre of Nations is the meeting point of the eastern and western dramaturgy.
One of the most unusual and creative theaters of Moscow, it acquaints its viewers with the best works of domestic and foreign dramatic art.
A unique creative space under the name of the Theatre of Peoples' Friendship appeared in Moscow in 1987. In two years of its activities the project became so successful and popular that it was given the governmental status and renamed into the Theatre of  Nations.
Activities of the on-stage performance group are rather extensive. The theater organizes various festivals, both on the local and international levels, actively promotes young talents and produces its own performances. Though there is no fixed troupe in the Theatre of Nations, its repertoire is one of the most varied ones.
Festival activities are presented with such a resonant project as the TerritorYa Festival, which introduces public to outstanding works by figures of modern art. One of the freshest projects is the festival Theatres of Russia — to the North Caucasus.  Tours to the cities of North Caucasus were held with dozens of performances by the largest Moscow theaters shown in the framework of the festival.
Theatrical seasons here are never the same. Every premiere show becomes a special occasion with a full house. The repertoire is made of works not only by modern Russian playwrights, but world famous masterpieces as well. Among them there is Marina Vladi's solo performance Vladimir, or the Interrupted Flight, Peter Stein's Faust Fantasy and Russia's first show of the world's best-known dancing studio PARSONS DANCE.
Leading playwrights from around the world are invited to work on stage plays for the Theatre of Nations. The repertoire includes works by  Alvis Hermanis and Eymuntas Njakroshus from Lithuania, Thomas Ostermeier from Germany, and one of the most odious stage directors of the present, Yavor Gyrdev. Besides, the Theatre of Nations gives the chance to aspiring talents to establish themselves and actively promotes the development of domestic stage directing traditions.
In addition to performing stage plays, theatre regularly tours, mostly in the framework of various festival programs. Its works have been repeatedly noted with state awards and honourable diplomas.
The Theatre of Nations is located at the address: 3, Petrovsky Lane, next to the Chekhovskaya, Pushkinskaya and Tverskaya metro stations in the centre of Moscow.
The ticket office is open from 12 am to 6 pm on Monday to Friday
