It’s hard to surprise Minsk spectators spoiled with art performances of all kinds, but the physical theatre InZhest is like no other. InZhest performances are mixes of modern pantomime, physical theatre and Butoh dance. The shows can be street and site-specific (from industrial buildings to city parks).
I was overwhelmed with emotions after watching the legendary DK Dance in the early 2000s. By coincidence, it was a transitional period for the theatre, as it was becoming the InZhest we know today. Many different performances have been staged over the last two decades and Vyacheslav Inozemcev continues to amaze us with new ones: GENESIS, TRASH POEM. Be sure to check the location while booking your tickets for one of the performances (stay tuned on facebook for information on the next events).
InZhest also organizes the annual PlaStforma festival. You might plan your trip to Belarus around these dates to watch some of the performances by outstanding Belarusian and foreign experimental dance theatres.
After attending one of the performances, you might want to get to know InZhest closer, so you can plunge into transformational self-discovery within theatre workshops conducted by the stage director.
