A new session of The Golden Ass project runs in May. This project is created in the genre of the “open-circuited workspace,” a fundamentally new strategy for Russian theatre.
Each of the five days of The Golden Ass project consists of daytime (2 to 6 p.m.) showings of so-called Modules  that is, independent works created by project participants which are presented in fragments and may be stopped by the director at any time to comment on them – and evening (7 to 11 p.m.) compositions: two “Shaggy,” two “White” and one “City.” Compositions are finished performances built from scenes and episodes, in which the text of Apuleius’ novel is combined with commentary from the performers engaging in the action.
