VASYA RUN – an interactive social experiment on the bounds of theater, music and contemporary art. The group is comprised of guys between the ages of 18 to 28, with no prior experience of performing.


The anonymous platform was created with the intention of enabling interaction and collaboration.

The central focus is on developing self-remembering, self-study and total immersion in the practice. All process is based on the research in acting practices, mental and spiritual schools, physical education.

Physical training for performers is as basic of a need as is training camps for athletes. Stage presence can only be achieved through continuous training of the body. The actor must not only be in good physical shape, he needs to fully monitor a complex set of reactions, and constantly avoid automatism. There is no simulator to hone these skills, so the only way to train is acting improvisation.

"THIS WAS EVERYWHERE, THE SEARCH HAS BEEN SUSTAINABLE. TRADE CENTERS, SUBWAY TRANSITIONS, CLUBS, STATIONS, SUBURBS. IF WE ARE TALKING ABOUT THE SUBCULTURE, EVERYBODY IS READY TO SUPPORT OUR HISTORY. IF YOU BEGIN TO TALK ABOUT EXPERIMENTS, IT INTIMIDATES. THERE IS A FEAR OF LOSING ONESELF. WHO CAN OVERCAME THIS FEAR?"
EXPERIMENT #2

Performance, during which six heroes try to find space hidden behind the senses, using word games. The book "The Reality of Being" by Jeanne de Salzmann, chosen for research, tells about the search for a way beyond the limits of one's own automatism.


Performance is built in exactly the same way as the stream of thoughts in heads: one thought catches up with another, and if two thoughts collide, then all the members of performance go back to the beginning.


Even if we choose the words ourselves, we no longer respond to their meanings. The head works separately from the body and emotions are separately from reality in principle. Our work is in discovering this reality, in awakening. In real time, we are on one of the practices that reveals this work.

Intensive at the Academy of Arts

Intensive course, created for the Academy of Arts, consisting of two daily practices - morning and evening.


Morning physical training resembles the training of Fight Club, opening the pressure points that interfere in the process of working with the body on the stage. Then each of the participants work independently with free improvisation with music Gabba hardcore (the most simple music with high bpm (170). We find the impulse to do certain movements, trying to understand their source and start to shoot down the usual course of the body. The body becomes the source of these movements. This practice takes more than an hour, attempts may be useless, the result is not achieved, but nevertheless it is a necessary step of releasing inner impulses.


The exercises lead to communication training such as, navigating through unfamiliar rooms with the eyes closed and practicing silence with the eyes open but without direct communication.

Practice may vary.

In the evening, the work begins with the text, but not as a sense-material. While pronouncing the words, as if you're staying in the territory of «the text». Voice and breath control is key, the work involves singing.

"THE MIND IS HYPNOTIC. LOST IN OUR OWN IDEAS. BREATH - I. EXPIRATION - AM"

"In short, it was hell. As if immersed in some kind of dark liquid, some unconscious opens: you do not understand anything, but you try to remember yourself, to realize your body, but you still can not figure out where all this shit comes from. It's getting scary, but it's a wonderful practice of knowing. 'The beast' wakes up and I watch the inner reaction of my consciousness to the events that take place in this room" - from the member's diary.
