Capital Theatre “Gogol center”, which is headed by the director Kirill Serebrennikov, again got into debt. The costs of unprofitable theater only grow, but the Moscow Department of Culture has stated that he was not going to pay off his debts.
Moscow would no longer financially support “Gogol-center.” “We categorically refuse to interfere in the affairs of the theater … In March, the theater had a problem with the payment of wages, but then we moved them to the annual funding of the whole, although it is done in the best quarterly. We helped the theater, thus fulfilling all its obligations before him. More money we do not have “- quoted by” Izvestia “head of the Department of Culture Alexander Kibovsky.
According to Kibovsky, responsible for the high costs “Gogol center” lies on the artistic director Kirill Serebrennikov, that “at the moment is actually acting as director and determines what is good, what is bad.” He continues to put expensive productions, and the mayor’s office refuses to allocate more funding for them. Himself Serebrennikov in July wrote that, on the contrary, refuses to work as director, which he imposed on the Department of Culture – precisely because it considers itself not competent enough in the economic life of the theater.
According to the Department of Culture, theater is loss-making and responsibility for all decisions related to finances, is the artistic director of “Gogol-center” by Kirill Serebrennikov. “We categorically refuse to interfere in the affairs of the theater. Serebrennikov not only the artistic director. At the moment he is actually acting as director and determines what is good, what is bad “- said the head of the Department of Culture Alexander Kibovsky.
He said that in March, the theater had a problem with the payment of wages, and authorities transferred them to annual funding entirely. “Although this is done in the best quarterly. We helped the theater, thus fulfilling all its obligations before him. More money we have, “- said Kibovsky.
However, the Serebrennikov argues that writing has refused to perform the duties of the director, but the answer from the Department of Culture did not come to him. According to him, during the last four months of the budget deficit of the theater managed to reduce almost by half, write “Izvestia».
At the same time, “Gogol center” has spent substantial sums on staging the play Serebrennikov “Who Lives Well in Russia “. Only choreographer Anton Adasinsky received for his work 600 thousand rubles – is unreasonably high fee, according to the former theater director Alexei Malobrodskogo. It is because of his conflict with Serebrennikov at the “Gogol-center” and financial problems – the director required to perform an expensive staging plan with a lack of funding.Tell A Friend:
