I have always been a very creative person. Sometimes even in the classroom, the answers were formulated in verse. “Oh, an artist!” — a saying that has plagued me my whole life.
Since childhood, I wrote stories that were read on the radio as part of children’s program at night, then lyrics, then the song… I and Philology came to develop the creativity that was in me from the very childhood, when I would spend hours to get hold of in the kindergarten the attention of a large group of children, telling them the night of the famous tale, but in its interpretation. I went to the kindergarten of sanatorium type, where there were children from difficult families. I now understand how difficult this audience that could spend hours to listen to me… Then I realized that even then I was holding the audience, telling stories that are listened to on vinyl.

It was a kind of promotion of my work. Now I’m not in the movie at all: I travel a lot, work with new material in the Studio with his musicians, rehearse. But there are two Russian Director whose acting is my dream, Renata Litvinova and Anna Melikyan. I feel that our universes are the same.
