The international inclusive festival invites participants to discussions, performances, and masterclasses at the Pushkin Museum from today and until October 25, TASS reports. The events will be broadcast on the project’s account on Facebook.
It is noted that the central theme of the festival will be the experience of social exclusion, the lack of emotional and tactile contact with the world in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. Festival guests will discuss such issues as equality and its illusion, hyperlocality and digital freedom, as well as rethinking the concept of personal boundaries.
For the first time, a special theatrical programme was also planned as part of the festival. Its curator is Nika Parkhomovskaya, a theater expert and producer of socio-cultural projects. Guests will be able to attend an open rehearsal of a play, as well as inclusive movement masterclasses from Swiss specialists from the integration dance company BewegGrund.
