Since 2005 a new period has started in life of ?Theatre of Generations?. Danila Zinovyevich Korogodsky has become its leader. From his play ?Without Lear? after W. Shakespeare?s play ?King Lear? a job for the total renewal of the theatre repertoire starts. And in 2006 the theatre changes it?s address ? it moves to the heart of the city ? Petropavlovsky Fort, where a unique theatre area is created among deserted rooms. Russian and foreign directors are engaged to work in the theatre. There are both classical and modern plays produced. The theatre takes part in festivals either in Russia (Nizhniy Novgorod, Saint-Petersburg) or abroad (Serbia, Switzerland). For almost 3 years there creates a repertoire of nine new plays. The Theatre of Generations is the theatre, directed to the viewers not currying flavor with them, the Theatre that belongs to the national tradition, but open for the world, the Theatre, ready for experiments not for reclaim, but for the search of new contents and forms, which indeed correspond with our time.
