TEATR FORMA: Juliana Berezhnaya's Auteur Theatre


Juliana is a follower of Vsevolod Meyerhold’s avant-garde traditions, Alexander Tairov’s ‘synthetic theatre’, Roman Viktyuk’s esthetic school and her own sense of form and spirituality of art. She works in a multidisciplinary manner, creating an artistic form at the intersection of drama, movement, and emotion, all blended together. Her productions are sharp in form and profound in content. Combining symbolism with Russian psychological theatre her own distinctive language was born. Spoken word is important but becomes secondary to the physicality and the visuals of the performance itself. She is interested in the non-canonical, non-realistic genres, oriented to the beauty of the artistic form, visual esthetics and depth of the substance.


The TEATR FORMA laboratory is aimed at intensive development in the area of theatre art, creation of a performance/creative project on a large stage or in front of the camera.

Creative interviews are required for new members.

It´s recommended to combine the classes with Acting for Life training and other creative disciplines in ArT Platforma.
