The center of independent theater opens in Kiev

In the autumn in the Dovzhenko Center, a new theater space will be launched - "Scene 6". The best performances of independent, alternative theaters can now be seen in one place. The initiators of the theater center were journalist Oleksiy Ananov, director of the "Wild Theater" Yaroslav Kravchenko, director Serhiy Perekrest and Dovzhenko Center. Part of the center's area on the sixth floor is now converted into theater space.

"Scene 6" is a multidisciplinary performative platform, opened to the cooperation of independent theatrical groups. Organizers also mentioned that on the basis of the platform will also work the Institute for Theater Studies. "Scene 6" will be integrated into the single structure of the art-cluster of Dovzhenko Center (the opening was announced at the end of autumn), along with the Media Library and the Museum of Cinema.

Already from September 7-17, "Scene 6" in the test mode will host a theatrical-choreographic program of the jubilee 10th festival of contemporary art "Gogolfest", which this year collaborated with Dovzhenko Center. Later, "Wild Theater" will show its performances: the premiere of renewed "Our class" by Sergey Perekrest, and "The Lord of the Flies" by David Petrosyan. In the future, there will be a number of festivals, panel meetings and thematic shows.

In the autumn of 2016 at Dovzhenko Center Jan Spector’s art space "Plivka" started to work, whose residents became the concert agency "Ear", the photo school of Viktor Marushchenko and the bookstore "CafePtah". At the end of 2017, the opening of the Museum of Cinema in the Dovzhenko Center was announced.

The activists describe their actions as a protest against commercialization of art.
