Theater Pokoleniy was founded in St. Petersburg in 1990
The mission of the Theater is to draw upon the traditions of Russian psychological theater and adapt them to the new cultural and social context at the dawn of the 21st century. The company explores techniques to build upon the teachings of Stanislavsky and reflect the changing conditions of the 90ies. Pokoleniy Theater was designed as laboratory for exploring new techniques for acting, and as a producing theater performing fresh and relevant work.
The company of professionally trained actors seeks to form a theatrical family. Not only performing traditional work, such as Shakespeare, the company reaches out to new playwrights internationally and creates work collectively as well. Guest artists from Germany and the United States bring new conceptual visions to Pokoleniy productions and company members bring their own projects to the group to develop them for performance. Pokoleniy - Generations - aims to create a nurturing theatrical home for both artists and audience: a laboratory for discovering new theatrical languages for the 21st century.
