Theatre Kitchen

under the direction of
Sergey Ostrenko

Sergey Ostrenko is a Russian director and teacher working in professional theatre over twenty-five years. His creative way has passed through the Cold War of the 1980s, collapse of the USSR in the 1990s, creative ordeals in the period of the interethnic tension in the Baltic and joining the New Europe. His creative work is the synthesis of the Russian Theatre School and the newest experiments in various performing arts.

Sergey Ostrenko has dedicated many years to exploration of world theatre traditions working with multicultural groups of performing artists. His approach is known internationally as the effective method of growing cohesion and creation of live performances within limited time. Theatre workers from Russia, Europe, America, Asia and Australia who trained with Ostrenko have been using his method in their own creative practice.

Theatre Kitchen is the hearth of new contacts, ideas, discoveries and inspiration in the atmosphere of group creative process.

The Kitchen is open to performers from different parts of the world, who have chosen the way of constant motion, change, continuous exploration of own potentialities and self-perfection in profession - the way of creation as the couse of life.
