KEEPING ON TRACK (2).png

In this episode we talk to Pushkin House Trustee, Ariadne Arendt. Born on the Black Sea in Crimea, and named after her great-grandmother, Ariadne moved to London from Moscow when she was four. Her creative projects span a wide range: a gangster Russian cat deejay alter-ego, a fictional artistic movement dedicated exclusively to sandwiches, a travelling vegetable puppet show, offering classic Russian literature spin-offs like Anna Karrotenina, Eugene Onionegin, Crime and Radishment. In addition to this Ariadne talks about her personal experience of growing up between different cultures and establishing a sense of belonging, from the Soviet Union to Montenegro.
