From time to time, the conference hall of Raikin PLAZA Hotel becomes a centre of attraction for theatre professionals. On November, 15 and 16 it held a two-day scientific conference “Theatre and Theatre Studies at the Beginning of the XXI Century: Quests, Problems, and Trends”, which brought together theorists and practitioners of theatre (and even those who combine theory and practice, like, for example, Andrey Tolshin, who is an actor of Nikolay Akimov Saint Petersburg Comedy Theatre and a professor of St. Petersburg State University of Culture). Among speakers, there were Konstantin Raikin, Moscow professors Dmitry Trubotchkin, Alexei Bartoshevich, Vidmantas Silyunas, St. Petersburg’s professor Vadim Maximov, Dmitry Zmeyev, the first Russian who had an official permission to teach and perform Indian dances, the editor-in-chief of the theatre magazine “Zamysly” (Ideas) Ekaterina Kostrikova and others. Of particular interest were foreign visitors - the professor of theatre studies from the UK Maria Shevtsova and guests from Greece: Platon Mavromoustakos, the head of the department of theatre studies, University of Athens, and Stathis Livathinos, the artistic director of Greek National Theatre in Athens. The conference featured video screening, master-classes on work with a mask and Indian dance and heated discussions as well.
