Culture included

The construction of the New Stage of the Vakhtangov Theatre was financed by Eastern Property Holdings, a Turandot Residence investor. The initiative presented new opportunities for the development of Moscow’s theatrical culture. In its turn, Turandot Residences also benefits from the vicinity to such a famous neighbour. The unique atmosphere of high culture spreads out onto the house and defines its character.

The cutting-edge theatre technologies widen the scope of artistic self-expression and freedom to experiment, which guarantees the audiences unforgettable cathartic moments. The basement levels contain the theatre’s costume sewing shop, the stage property maintenance workshop and the storage. The carpenters’ workshop produces decorations for both the New and the Old Stages. But the main advantage is that both the stage and the auditorium are as transformable as a director might choose them to be.

AES+F

The photographers on the project are one of Russia’s most successful art-groups. Having existed since 1987, AES+F works in the genres of installation, photography, video, sculpture and media art. Their visual mannerism is easily recognisable due to somewhat deliberate staginess and “gloss”. Having become the firm’s trademark, they help highlight the ideas the artists strive to get across.
