Artyom Kim’s Laboratory THEATRE+MUSIC began its work in January of 2016. This is a collaborative project of the Ilkhom Theatre of Mark Weil and the Omnibus Ensemble. Over the course of half a year, the Laboratory has been leading theoretical and practical lessons on plasticity, rhythm, and improvisation. The participants of the Laboratory see their goal as finding a new stage language, experimenting with synthesizing various types of art, and the creation of an encompassing space of communication for artistic people in Uzbekistan: actors, directors, painters, dancers, playwrights, and musicians. During its collaboration with the Ilkhom Theatre, the Laboratory has presented three performances: “Counting to Seven”, “The Mysticism of Sound”, and “Flight to the Skies”.
The end of the six-month cycle of Artyom Kim’s THEATRE+MUSIC Laboratory work was the preview of the project “Airport” – which connects within itself all branches of the Laboratory’s work. The preview took place on June 25th and 26th, 2016.
