Volunteers’ enrolment has been opened for the central event of the Platonov Festival participation.

This year the traditional Theatres parade of the Platonov Festival will take place in a new format: it will be a large scale street performance, invented and created specifically for the festival. Its concept is worked out by young Moscow artists and directors from the art group KTOMY led by Anastasia Nefyodova, the main artist of the Stanislavsky Electrotheater. At the parade will be presented more than 120 original costumes, objects and designs. And to make all these ideas come to life we are looking for the participants.

We are looking for:

  • Actors, students and graduates of theater schools;
  • stilt-walkers;
  • Rollers, jumpers, skateboarders;
  • Dancers (pop dance, cancan, or hip-hop) and models;
  • Young men of athletic build;
  • Young black men with a sporty build;
  • Volunteers for working with parade decorations and objects.

Requirements for participants: 

  • Over 18 years old;
  • Good physical conditioning;
  • You must have free time from 6 to 12 June (for the period of carrying out the fitting, rehearsals and performances).

Applications are accepted until 15 May at the email parad@platonovfest.com. Download the application form: for one person or for a team.

The parade-duel "Pushkin Games" will take place on the Revolution Avenue on June the 12th. This is the most mass event of the Platonov Festival. More than 15,000 people were the spectators of the parade last year. We are looking for people who want to announce themselves and contribute to the creation of a great city celebration.
