AKHE’s art-reflection to the world order.
The variety of information and money wars have generated a worldwide flood of terms, new concepts and memes. Democracy is a victorious slogan of the 20th century, in the 21st century acquired an estimated meaning equivalent to an export, a barrel, the profits.
Theater AKHE using the law of Archimedes examines the transformation of the term and, according to the law of time, spreads the puzzle of art objects into an understandable evaluative symbol of modern Plutosses.
Perfromance act of Engeneering theatre AKHE ” DEMOCRACY” – get the price of democracy first-ever!
The group was founded by three members of Boris Ponizovski theatre “Yes – No” (Maksim Isaev, Pavel Semtchenko, Vadim Vasiliev) in 1989. Immediately the group announced itself as independent (in term of styles and forms) and started their activity in a performance, cinema, fineart’s fields. From 1996 they count themselves more like theatre collective, created for the normal (in classical means) stage the performance “Cataloque of the Hero”. Since that time the group is permanent participant of theatre festivals in Russia and abroad. Without ignorance of the real Theatre laws, but admiring its Signs, AKHE substitutes with desire: dramatic art ( drama ) by logic development of images and situations, rehearsals by zombeing themselves and psychological play by ependence on elementary physical laws.
