The Free Artist’s Workshop appeared in 2013, when graduates of the St. Petersburg Theatre Academy (A. A. Praudin’s workshop) decided not to part after graduation, but to organize their own theatre and work together. A year later, the name was reduced to a concise “TSEKH” (Workshop) and the theatre gained its platform and its audience.
TSEKH is a young and independent theatre, and it can afford the creative freedom they consider necessary. If you are interested in what the theatrical spirit the youth of St. Petersburg breathes, I recommend you visit this place.
The hall and stage looks quite simple, because everything is furnished through the actors, directors and friends of the project. This minimalism has its own charm. I love small projects in which the individuality of the creators is so clearly visible.
The repertoire of the theatre includes both modern, actual plays and play theatre experiments with classic authors.
Sometimes there are exhibitions and concerts taking place in the theatre space.
