In support of the crowdfunding campaign for a new theatrical space "POROKH" December 9 at 20:00 (MSC) theater AKHE will broadcast the play "Hero's catalog" online.

The AKHE Engineering Theater is a unique theater of artists from St. Petersburg, successfully performing on the russian and world theater scene for more than 25 years, laureate of the Golden Mask national prize and the Fringe First at Edinburgh Fringe Festival. This Saturday, December 9, the AKHE Theater will show the play "Hero's Catalog", which will be available for viewing online.

"Hero's catalog" is a performance-constructor, in which an attempt is made to trace the life of the Hero from his birth to his death, and even further ... While the Hero does not exist at all in the play, but there is a very close examination of objects and situations, with which the hero has already encountered. Or could collide.

"POROKH" is the theater space (named after the historical district of Rzhevka-Porokhovye), operating since April 2017, the residence of the Engineering Theater "AKHE" in St. Petersburg.

The "POROKH" is located in the former workshop at the active factory of laminated plastics. The AKHE Theater sets itself the task of turning POROKH into a full-fledged working tool, manned to realize the most ambitious plans. Not only own, but also projects of collectives, related to AKHE in spirit.

In November launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise funds to equip the originally needed technical equipment for the POROKH for functioning in a full-fledged theatrical mode. In support of this campaign, on December 9 the performance "Hero's catalog" will be broadcast online.

Dear our friends,

last week we have launched crowdfunding campaign on the Russian web-platform planeta.ru

We began to equip our new working place POROKH in St. Petersburg and collect money for the theatrical installation.

As non-government theatre, Akhe group believes that today it is possible to solve complex financial tasks without recourse to the state. Turning thereby into hostages of ideology or a momentary conjuncture.

We value independence, we believe in mutual help of free people and we hope for the support of our initiative. Verticals are unstable, and the horizontals are reliable and endless.

You can also support us! And we are feeding back with our creative energy.

This site has an English version and the donation can be made using a bank card or web.money: https://planeta.ru/campaigns/akheporokh

Together - we are force!



From September 30 to October 18, Engineering Theatre AKHE will present a series of performances "BETWEEN TWO", starting with the premiere "BETWEEN TWO. SHELLS"

The cycle of performances "BETWEEN TWO" is a public reflection of the Tibetan Book of the Dead "Bardo Thodol" on a stage. This performance is a postmortem study of the conditions described in the literary monument of IIX century.

The book "Bardo Thodol" is a sort of guide to the afterlife with a detailed description of the stages (bardo) through which the person's consciousness passes from the moment of death to the moment of the next incarnation. "Bardo" literally translates as "between two" and means some intermediate state in the interval from and to. According to the Buddhist tradition, in addition to several death bardo, there are also life bardo, sleep bardo and meditation bardo. In the performances "Between the Two", the AHE Engineering Theater creates an atmosphere of immersion in yet another completely different, actually invented state of the bardo - the theatrical bardo.

To implement such an ambitious project, it was necessary to create a whole series of performances. To date, there are six separate performances pierced by a single stylistic and scenographic solution.

Through its unique theatrical language, formed in a quarter of a century, the AKHE members build on the stage a different reality, genuine and united, and draw the viewer into it. The authors of "Between the Two" are convinced that the performance-reflection on death should be maximally alive. This manifests itself in the genre diversity of each of the shows. Here they face a new "new drama", installation, performance, dance, singing, mystery, masquerade and other artistic practices.

Performance schedule:

September 30 and October 1 - PREMIER "BETWEEN TWO. SHELLS»
October 4 - "BETWEEN TWO. THE TRIAL. SIX WORLDS»
October 7 - "BETWEEN TWO. KARMATIC STORM»
October 11 - "BETWEEN TWO. THE THRESHOLD»

October 18 - "BETWEEN TWO. SELF-REALIZATION»
