theatre postThe Closed Door
Independent theatre group “theatre post” was founded in 2011 by Dmitry Volkostrelov, student of an outstanding director Lev Dodin, graduate of the Saint Petersburg State Theatre Arts Academy. They employ young actors from Moscow and St. Petersburg and for their performances they chose alternative spaces, such as nightclubs, rearranging them according to the needs of the performance. “theatre post” is not financed by the Russian government and relies
entirely on the money donated by private contributors and sponsors.
The main goal of the theatre is to combine the most interesting elements of contemporary theatre and visual arts. The artists of “theatre post” use theatre as the means of studying reality and, at the same time, they are trying to find new language for their work. The name of the theatre refers to the theory of post-dramatic theatre by a German theatrologist, Hans-Thies Lehmann.
