Moscow. 29 Nov. INTERFAX.RU – Artistic Director of the Bolshoi Moscow circus on Vernadsky Prospekt Askold Zapashny encouraged to distribute the work on circuses, which is now engaged in the Russian state circus company, among the key Russian authorities.
“Offer to distribute the work on the circuses between the key companies that developed after the collapse of the USSR. However, they would have acted under the control of the Ministry of culture to ensure that there were no attempts to commercialize the institutions that they worked for the industry,” said Zapashny on Tuesday at a meeting of the public Council under the Ministry of culture.
He noted that the circuses might work on the principle of a conglomerate of large companies in the industry.
“there’s a healthy competition, they create a product, but are in the Union,” said Zapashny.
Artistic Director of the Great Moscow circus said that the concept of development of circus arts until 2020 in its present form has as its objective monopolization of the circus sector, which is not allowed.
In turn, Deputy Minister of culture of the Russian Federation Alexander Zhuravsky has suggested to create working group on development of draft concept of development.
“this concept is not a strategic planning document. To review, it must, it does not correspond to current reality. We are ready to organize a working group to work on a new concept,” – said the Deputy Minister.
He noted that the working group must be approved prior to February 1, 2017.
“Rosgostsirk” to date, brings together 42 of the stationary circus all over Russia.
