What is Creative Centre "B&TS"
It is the theatrical set designer Boris Bylev and the theatrical director, the playwright, the actor and critic Igor Tsunsky
We became winners of the "Theatre and family" Ural Regional Theatrical Festival in 1993 (an award for the best scenography and direction) for the performance of "Test on a role of the Great actress," Chelyabinsk New Art Theatre (NHT). That project was nominated for the Golden Mask Award in 1997. The Open Society Institute and Soros Fund supported the performance of "Apricot Paradise", the project winner of the Competition of "Theatre of XXI century" Theatrical Projects. We presented our performances for international theatrical festivals, in particular for the "Theatrical Experience" in Magnitogorsk, Ural Region, and "Lambushka" Festival of Chamber Drama in Petrozavodsk. We performed in Tallinn, Kineshma, Smolensk... Our performances went (and still go on!) in Moscow: at the New Drama Theatre, Ostrovsky Moscow Theatre, "Shalom" Jew Theatre, "Balaganchik" Studio Theatre, "AYA" Studio Theatre for Children, "Dialogue" Moscow Studio Theatre.
Our team project was developed into the theses "Theatrical Hermeneutics: on the Understanding of Theatrical Texts" Igor completed his post-graduate studies at the "Independent Academy of Free Arts". He earned his PhD at RATI. Our critics and research papers were published in the following journals: "Playwright", " Modern Dramatic Art ", "Autograph", "Social Sciences and the Modernity", the journal of the Russian Academy of Sciences, "Obschaya gazeta", etc. We collaborate with Nelli Kornienko's Kurbas Centre in Kiev.
In music, we collaborate with modern Russian composers such as Margarita Zelenaya, Janna Plieva, Vladimir Brussom, Vladimir Chernev and others. We were the first performer of many modern plays, namely "Apricot paradise" by Elena Isaeva, "Theatre of Peshkin militiaman or the Weekend with Revizor" by Igor Lysov, "Sad face" by Victor Sobchak, UK, "The other life of Oblomov" by Michael Ugarov, and "Codefendants", a play written by 17-year-old Goethe.
