Golden Mask International Activities
Throughout the years of its existence the Golden Mask Festival has been actively engaged in a variety of international activities. Russian theatre has never existed in isolation from global artistic ideas, searches and challenges. It is clear that mutual influences, intersections, derivations, the emergence of innovative, unique and pioneering phenomena make theatre life more diverse, unpredictable and fascinating. This is a mutually beneficial situation: being part of the global context the theatre in our country becomes enriched and nourished, while world theatre experiences the influence of Russian theatre.
Golden Mask International Activities are channelled in three directions: showing recent innovative foreign productions and programs in Russia, sending the very best new Russian performances abroad and finally the annual Russian Case Programme launched over 20 years ago, which updates the international festival community to what is happening in Russian theatre.
