Russian collective VASYA RUN present the UK premier of their latest performance. Eight young men aged between 18 to 26 from London and Moscow feature in this interactive and experimental work on the bounds of theatre, music and contemporary art. Created over an extended rehearsal period, the young men, with no background in performance, undergo an intensive programme designed to address their experiences of anxiety and introduce mindfulness practices into their daily lives.

“The aim is not to make [the performers] actors. During the actual performance they need to perform in a state of selfawareness, inner spontaneity, inner freedom and freedom of physical expression.” VASYA RUN

VASYA RUN is an anonymous platform investigating street subcultures, radical youth and teenage scenes, particularly amongst the generation born in the early nineties, following the collapse of the Soviet Union. Their research explores the gender politics of youth and what happens to subcultures when they become commodified.


Organised with V-A-C Live,a performance platform of the V-A-C Foundation, founded in Moscow in 2009 for the production, presentation and development of new culture.
