In November 2018, one of the most acclaimed Moscow theatres, the Pyotr Fomenko Workshop, commissioned me to produce a series of portraits of theatre's complete cast, creative crew, Artistic Director and CEO.
Together with my team we produced 89photoshoots in 21days, resulting in a massive set of 224 portraits.
In the core of the project is a collaboration between the artist and his subject.
To make the series more diverse and involving for the viewer, I came up with an idea of a game. Actors were all invited to choose an object from a large set of more than 100 random theatrical props.
They were then to enact a character, who owns the chosen item.
The result of such improvisation might be seen as a spontaneous play, happening once and existing afterwards only as a few frames, captured by the photographer.

In January, 2019 the project was displayed as a massive show in the Theatre's exhibition space, comprising 64 portraits.
The project is a collaboration with Broncolor Russia.
