The II International Festival-forum “Director’s Space”

October, 8-14, 2010, Perm

Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation
Ministry of Culture, Youth Policy and Mass Communications of the Perm Region
Perm Academic Theatre
The project is realized within the framework of the France-Russia Year 2010 /

The festival is held in Perm for the second time. It sees its aim in creating a united directors’ community. It intends to become a space for dialogue between directors of the First League of the world theatre, as well as for those, who are at the very beginning of their career. The idea  of the festival implies breaking the stereotypes connected to the perception of the director’s profession, and the biggest myth of a self-sufficiency of that profession.

Through interaction among them and with the representatives of the most important adjacent professions, the participants will have a possibility to gain an insight into the interests and the artistic criteria of their colleagues and, consequently, to understand better their own earmarking, to see their possible way of development. The programme of the festival includes performances of productions chosen by selectors-representatives of key theatre professions (director, critic, actor, producer).

«Director’s Space» is one of the major culture development projects in the Perm Region. The festival was created in 2007 and at once became the venue for serious artistic dialogue between Russian and foreign directors.
