Parallel Worlds to bring together 18 youth theater companies in Baranovichi

BREST, 13 April (BelTA) – The international festival and workshop Parallel Worlds will bring together 18 youth theater companies in Baranovichi, BelTA learned from Larisa Sartakova, the director of the theater studio Parallel.

The Belarusian Youth Capital, the city of Baranovichi, will host the theater forum from 19 to 24 April for the sixth time. Partaking in the festival will be theater companies from Belarus, Ukraine, Russia, Germany, and Estonia. The organizers received applications from 57 theaters, and 18 of them were chosen to perform on the stage of the Baranovichi Children’s Art Palace.

“The level of the forum is rising year by year. Its geography is expanding. This year we have invited new companies unknown to our audience. The program features performances to suit everyone’s taste,” Larisa Sartakova said and added that Baranovichi residents and guests will be invited to enjoy productions in Russian, German, and Lithuanian. The youth theater companies will present tragedies, comedies, dramas, musical productions, and even detective stories.

For example, the Saint Petersburg-based theater studio Zakulisye will present production Ten based on the most famous novel by Agatha Christie. A theater from the Lithuanian Anyksciai will show a continuation of Johann Goethe’s Faust with Margarita as the lead character. The program also features exciting productions by the Cologne Theater Academy and the Nikolaev youth theater S.T.U.K.

The participants will be offered tours of Mir Castle and Nesvizh Castle, Brest Fortress, and the capital city of Minsk. Representatives of the Cologne Theater Academy have plans to spend two days in Minsk and visit the Belarusian State Academy of Arts.
