Pushkin House is delighted to present an exclusive performance of the play “Misha and Lena” by ground-breaking Russian theatre company Teatr.doc. This deeply moving play is about Mikhail Ugarov and Elena Gremina, the founders of Teatr.doc using material from their social media posts over many years, telling the story of their own relationship and that of the theatre, and the problems they faced right up to their untimely deaths in April and May 2018. Gremina and Ugarov brought a new voice to Russian theatre, and documented political repressions in Russia over recent years. Followed by Q&A with Zarema Zaudinova, during which she will talk about the history of Teatr.doc & its future. This event is organised in association with the Stanislavski Centre at Rose Bruford College and ARCC.
