00.00.0000 Comments of Artistic Director of the Alexandrinsky Theater Valery Fokin to the Free Format Interview
Dear colleagues! After the broadcast of Free Format show in which issues of censorship in culture had been touched (Echo Moscow radio station, 12.01.2016), new circumstances have come out. 
I said in the ether that a play of young playwright Kirill Fokin, which he had created after his novel Fire by theaters order, had undergone censorship by request of the Ministry of Culture (presently, I am in the final stage of working on a performanceToday. 2016 after this play.) After the broadcast, I have received a well-founded letter from the Minister of Culture Vladimir Medinsky refuting this fact. The Ministry had never sent a request for introduction of the play and, according to the actual law, it even had no rights to issue such request even as a recommendation. The procedure and regulations for censorship which I had told about in the yesterday interview do not exist. However, the theater did send the play for some internal review. I cannot exclude that someones private initiative could be considered as an official request. On its part, the theater intends to find out the causes of what had happened. I am bringing my official apologies to the Ministry of Culture and listeners to the Free Format show. 



00.00.0000 Opening of Artist Mikhail Platonovs Exhibit DANTES SPIRIT. Graphics and Installations.
On January 15, an exhibit of the theater artist Mikhail M. Platonoventitled Dantes Spirit will open at the K.S. Stanislavsky House of Actor (86 Nevsky Ave.) at 5 p.m. Mikhail Platonov has worked at the Alexandrinsky Theater since 1978 as an artist-constructor; since 1982, he has been teaching at the department of stage design and theater technologies at RSISA (Russian State Institute of Stage Arts, earlier called SPbSATA and LSITN&C). His hands had created models for the legendary performances of the Alexandrinsky Theater. However, to imaging the scale of Platonovs artists personality, it would not be enough to operate with the terms of model designer and producing designer. Besides the stage design, Mikhail Platonov works in diverse genres. At the Dantes Spirit Exhibit one can see his installations and his graphic illustrations for Dantes Inferno, the first part of The Divine Comedy by Dante Alighiery. 

The exhibit will extend from January 15 to 26, 2016.

00.00.0000 The Last Chance by Vladimir Nagli
On February 28, 2016, a memorial plaque (The Last Addresses) will be placed on the house at 38 Kolomenskaya Str. to commemorate Vladimir N. Nagli, Deputy Director of the theater in 1933-1936. This address turned to be the last one for V.N. Nagli. On October 20, 1938, he was arrested under a framed up case of participation in the rightist Trotsky-Zinoviev terrorist organization which had allegedly intended to assassinate the First Secretary of the Leningrad Regional and City Committee of the All-Union Communist Party of Bolsheviks A. Zhdanov. Vladimir Nagli (36) was convicted to 8 years in camps. Suffering of gastric ulcer, after 10 months in prison under investigation, he was considered fit for physical labor and marching to the penitentiary zone. An occasional fellow prisoner George Zhzhenov described him as looking unhealthy in his memoirs; he had met Nagli when transported with his group under arrest to Kolyma. On October 6, 1940, a certificate of death was signed at Sevvostlag with the cause of death indicated as Froze to death on the way. No other indications. In 1956, Vladimir Nagli was rehabilitated post-mortem. Vladimir Naglis son Mikhail had also become a prominent theater figure, recollected how prior to repressions visitors to their spacious apartment were such actors as Nickolay Cherkasov, Vasily Merkuroev, Yuru Lavrov, Ekaterina Korchagina-Alexandrovskaya; how his father would take him to Meyerholds rehearsals.
The event will be taking place within the frame of The Last Address movement which emerged in 2013 in commemoration of people repressed in the 1930s. There are 57 memorial signs already installed on 31 buildings in St. Petersburg. These houses with small plaques of 11x19cm size include: Akhmatova Museum (the Fountain House) and Zoshchenko Museum. Other cities also have such signs: one can see them in Moscow, the Moscow Region, Taganrog, Perm, Tver, Maloyaroslavets, Buy, the Perm Region, and the Nizhny Novgorod Region.
