In a bit more than an hour the show will make its axial rotation and come back to the initial point.
In Greek Palimpseston means ‘a newly scraped off book’.
There are no words, but each word has several meanings. There are not many items, but each item has many incarnations. The main thing is that everything starts from nothing and ends with nothing.
Palimpseston is a wordless performance created for the festival in 2007 and it has been repeatedly performed since.
The Young Audience Theatre “SAMART” (State Repertoir Theatre) was founded on 14 December, 1930. 28 April, 1997 has become an event which undoubtedly took on special significance in the cultural life of Samara. For the first time in Russia a theatre (and it was SAMART) with traditional rows of chairs and a stage was modified into a modern easily transformed studio in accordance with the specific concept of a producer. This renovation was made due to the practical support of the Governor of the Samara region and the Department of Culture of the Samara Region Administration. The system of different specialized individual technical devices allows to change the space, flexibly plan the number of seats for spectators. The above experience has identified a new artistic approach and views towards the concealed possibilities of the scenic world which fact allows a theatre and an artist to improve and develop creative ideas, build up an exclusive theatrical “product” of a theatre-atelier. In 1999 small auditorium was opened in SAMART. It was equipped with telescopic seats and a scenic site. Thus, new performances were born on the stage of the theatre-atelier. SAMART is an active participant of numerous festivals and other theatrical activities. During these years the theatre has become known all over Russia and abroad due to the International Festival “Golden Turnip” which is carried out by SAMART every two years. The Festival is also a laboratory course for the young directors, managers of amateur theatres.
