Experimental theatre and graffiti come together in Voronezh for one-off show

The Voronezh-based experimental theatre troupe Informal (Neformat) will use an exhibition from street artist Lastik as a backdrop for a new, one-off show at Actor’s House cultural space next week. The exhibition comprises sketches and stencils for Lastik’s future work on contemporary social issues, which the troupe will use as inspiration for their performance, privileging topics such as the internet’s effect on social disunity, the dominance of technology and environmental concerns.

Established to provide Voronezh with a platform for experimental theatre, Informal wowed audiences earlier this year with a performance of Silent House, a show in which the actors remained silent, using only dance and movement to construct a narrative.

Informal performance will take place on 14 May.
