"The Russian Context of Hebrew Theater: Past and Present"

Summary of Research, July 2008

Update November 2010:

This period was beautiful because I spent it at the Unit of Culture Research, Tel Aviv University, where I made my post-doctoral research under Prof. Itamar Even-Zohar tutoring. My research was dedicated to cultural entrepreneurs of Russian origins and its theme was "New Russian Immigrants as Suppliers of New Options for the Israeli Theatre". Thanks to this research I met many interesting people, got a lot of interesting information and developed some new ideas. During this period I gave a few lectures and wrote a few articles on this theme, but the most important result of this period is the fact that I myself became a cultural entrepreneur and developed some new cultural projects in the field of Israeli theatre.

 First I raised the Internet forum about Israeli theatre for Russian speakers [ ], which has already been working for more than two years.

Now I am developing another project which has to start in December 2010 in Ashdod. This is "Tet-atrical lounge", that is to say monthly meetings on different theatrical themes which will take place in the "Tet" Cultural Center of Ashdod and will be meant for the Russian-speaking audience.
