Interactive theatrical projects to contribute to the festive atmosphere of the Slavianski Bazaar in Vitebsk-2015
The 24th International Festival of Arts known as the Slavianski Bazaar in Vitebsk will be held from July 9th-13th. The traditional opening and closing concerts, the Day of the Union State (mostly dedicated to the Great Victory’s 70th anniversary) and the international song contest will be the key events. In addition, the Vitebsk Cultural Centre aims to support the festive atmosphere in the city with additional cultural projects, such as a sequel to The Doll Quarter project. The latter was first presented in 2014 as a one-off event before the show in the Lyalka Puppet Theatre and was well received by the public. With this in mind, it’s been decided to organise On Seven Winds, a festival of street theatres, musicians, artists and poets, to feature interactive performances, exhibitions and shows. The organisers hope that these planned events will help to reinforce the theme of the cultural capital, youth and artistry of the Year of Youth. Young residents and Vitebsk’s guests will also enjoy participating in the international children’s drawing competition.
