The third edition of the Big Break International Festival of Theatre for Children will take place from October 30 to November 8, 2009. The Festival is organized by PRAKTIKA Theatre and supported by the Government of Moscow and cultural institutions.
The aim of the Festival is to introduce the Moscow audience to the best examples of Russian and international theatre for children and to create a debating forum for a large contingent of theatre professionals from Russia and abroad.
The Big Break Festival is a major event in Moscow addressed to children. In 2008 it presented an array of highly acclaimed productions for children (59 shows from Russia and Europe) to full audiences (over 40 000 spectators) with wide media coverage and warm feedback from spectators and professionals working in the sphere of theatre for children and child education. Besides the main programme of shows, the Festival hosted a serious discussion platform with the participation of key experts in the field of theatre for children from Russia and abroad. Moreover, the Big Break organized a charity programme which included performances in hospitals and orphanages. Among the participants of the festival were theatre companies from all over Russia (Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Nizhny Novgorod, Samara, Mariinsk, Velikiy Novgorod, etc.) and abroad (Britain, Canada, Mexico, Estonia, Sweden, the U.S., Denmark, Italy, Holland, Switzerland, Bulgaria, etc.).
The festival programme in 2009 will traditionally include Russian, International, Special and Charity sections. Two productions of the legendary Russian Maly Drama Theatre from St.Petersburg - “Mumu” and “The Snow Queen” - will be the focus of the Russian programme. The key event of the International Programme will be the Danish Focus: shows, readings of plays, discussions, an exhibition of Danish theatre posters. The festival is also planning a series of discussions, masterclasses, workshops within the framework of the Special Programme and a series of socially oriented activities reaching out to those who do not have adequate access to cultural life - orphans, disabled or ill children, etc.
The Festival welcomes international guests who come as observers and participants of meetings and discussions.
