“The year of 2014 has been announced as the UK-Russia Year of Culture, which will celebrate the long-lasting cultural links between the two countries, and illustrate how the relationship continues to develop exciting new creative and contemporary narratives.

It is in this context we have aimed to conceive a project to celebrate the best of Russian and UK culture in beautiful union, and directly explore the connection of performance and audience in this cultural setting.
