MOSCOW. Within two days, March 15-16, an unusual festival will be held at the Taganka Theater, organized as part of the celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of the famous theater.

The initiator and organizer of the festival, Anna Banasyukevich, said that there is a huge archive in the theater, where not only the minutes of the artistic councils were preserved, in which prominent representatives of culture and science, who became legends of the 60s and 80s, participated, but also reviews of performances, correspondence with authorities. There is also a solid video archive and a lot of audio recordings.
These materials are the most valuable witnesses of the time by means of which it is possible to come into contact with the history of «Taganka», having comprehended it from the position of today. Participants of the festival were asked to choose a significant fact from the history of the theater, or one of the performances, creating a documentary play on the basis of available materials.
The result of this work was five author’s texts, the reading of which will take place at the Maly Theater scene on March 15-16. Each of them represents the history of the theater in different ways. Andrei Stadnikov worked on restoring fragments of performances that suffered from censorship. Andrei Rodionov will present the research of events in the theater related to the departure of Lyubimov in 1984 and the appointment to Taganka of Efros.
