NEBOLSHOY THEATRE is successfully implementing its socio-cultural project “Where are We Living for?”(Kuda Zhivem?) as part of a Regional target programme. The idea of the project is to hold regular discussions of the plays “Crime, Home Help, Punishment, Pensioner Murdered”, “Well, I’m Living. All is Well”, “CHEKHOV. With Love…”, “Once Upon a Time There Lived Hercules…”.
OBJECTIVES AND AIMS OF THE SOCIO-CULTURAL PROJECT “WHERE ARE WE LIVING FOR?”:
- Audience accumulation by attracting young people, students.
- Building a stable active audience.
- Establishingaudience feedback.
During the discussions, which follow performances, the young spectators are welcome to join in a frank conversation with the company and guest experts. According to audience feedback, the plays they have seen make them think, look for solutions to those problems, which lead to spiritual crisis in young people. The audience are interested in analyzing the characters’ actions, in projecting them onto their own reality. The young spectators sincerely sympathize with the characters and together with them truly live through their stories.
No fewer than 20 discussions are held each theatre season and every one of them is unique.
