On the basis of the “teatrium on serpukhovka” started for ten “Gavroche”. The boy grew up and decided to go beyond the boundaries of Europe went to Israel. I saw interesting performances and shows here in Moscow.

Two hours before opening. The Moscow team bustles, worn from room to room, checking for readiness. Delegations from Israel, it would seem, though: they calmly discuss the nuances of working, I remember about the Sabbath. But one feels that everything is under control, because at the helm of the festival, two art Directors — Teresa Durova and Marina Raikin.
— Russian theatre from Israel have never been presented on this scale, and anyway the Israeli theater for the whole family we have known — says Teresa Ganibalova. We have discovered the beauty and originality for yourself and want to show it to young Muscovites, their parents. He admires the openness, courage and tenderness. It has it all: puppet, object, literary theatre, clowning, daring experiments, experience in hospitals, modern dance.
It and rehearse on the big stage in the play “Football.” From the last row it seems that dancing macho-players without the ball playing the ball, show shenanigans, incredible gymnastics. Begin splits, crazy plastic — do guys get Horny? Here the choreographer Nadine, Bommer specially flown in from new York, exclaims: “Girls, come on, hurry up!”. Well, now you understand. Ms. Bommer destroys the rules of the game, offering a different stage language.
Meanwhile on the small stage is run “the Tailor of dreams” (Director Gaul Fradkin), which opens the festival. In a sleepy village that emerged from the workshop of pillows, sleep well all, only one Princess has nightmares. But the point here is not the plot, but what made the show. In the course went the pillow and thread, and so many of them that it seems someone robbed a model factory.
And in the lobby to charge children a paper at the master class is preparing Galia Levi-Grad. Her performance of “Halamska legend — full moon” will today and tomorrow just in the “Theater of the moon”. On the stage will unfold a great book, like a pop-up book, which will house the theatre of shadows and puppets. Heroes go in search of the new moon to hang it is stolen. And the audience through the window look at Jewish folklore.
Here is the opening of the festival. Guests have become accustomed that “Gavroche” always look to those who are not to meet at press conferences, social events… So was this time. The word takes the Ambassador of Israel in Russia Alex Goldman-Shayman: “I am delighted that the festival is timed to the 25th anniversary of the restoration of diplomatic relations between Russia and Israel. Here you will see good quality performances and know Israel through art”.
As for the Board of Trustees is composed of Vera Vasilyeva, Nonna Grishaeva, Sergey Kazarnovsky. Vera remembered the first acquaintance with the project, then invited her to read a story for kids. She marveled at how children come into the theatre.

Nonna Grishaeva noted that “Gavroche” is the same age as her son, and wished the festival to grow and to sweep away all limits on the way. And Sergei Kazarnovsky told how to find out the effectiveness of artistic works. In his opinion, business is rising, if the birth rate when it is created increases. During the “Gavroche” Kasimovskogo a granddaughter, a grandson and another expected completion. So the festival is more than effective.
