“This year we are holding the festival for the fourth time. The main news for both ourselves and the audience is that for the first time we are organising it in cooperation with the Theatre Centre of the Russian Federation’s STD ‘On Strastnoy’.

In addition, as last time, we are inviting to the festival performances staged by creative teams of GITIS graduates. It is important for us that these works are seen by the Moscow audience”

“The festival ‘Your Chance’ is a platform for meeting students and graduates of different schools, their potential employers and Moscow viewers who can see the future stars of theatre and cinema today. This year we are celebrating our 20th anniversary. In its honour we are organising a special project – a joint festival with GITIS, our regular participant, long-time friend and partner,” said Director and Artistic Director of the Theatre Centre “On Strastnoy” of the STD of the Russian Federation Mikhail Pushkin.
