Russia – Czech Republic
Evgueni Ibragimov is a Circassian director who has been touring the world for some thirty years, he is the winner of the Russian National Theatre’s GOLDEN MASK award and the winner of the Russian Federation Government Award in honour of Fyodor Volkov (2003). He directs puppet productions in major theatre companies and focuses his work on the relationship of creation to the creator, in spaces that are often dark and disturbing, where the spectator no longer knows who is an actor, a performer or an object.
His work and the strong bond that has been created between him and the actors of Moon Cabaret with whom he has been collaborating since their meeting in the summer of 2021 at the Festival d’Avignon is exceptional and will be a real moment of poetry and virtuosity during this edition of the Jardin Rouge.
Dimitar Dimitrov is a Bulgarian director, puppeter and puppet creator. After studies at the National Academy of Theatre and Film Art (Sofia), he toured all over Europe. He is also a board member at the puppet theatre Vlinders &Co (Beveren, Belgium).
