Gogol Center

Moscow, Russia


Sasha Zerkalyova

Gogol Center is based on former Gogol theatre — a place situated somewhere behind Kursky railway station and not very popular among theatre-goers. Vanguard russian director Kilrill Serebrennikov turned the old theatre into the modern cultural center with the transformer stage, lobby that looks like a Brooklyn loft, bookstore and cafe that works even when there are no performances on the stage. The main condition of the repertoire choice is topicality. Main topics of the day are provided by Ovid, Shakespeare, Lars von Trier, Reiner Fassbinder and Russian writer Victor Erofeev. One of the most interesting things in Gogol Center is to observe how young actors from Serebrennikov’s class cooperate on the stage with the actors from the former Gogol theatre.
