The Beginning of the End

After nine years of construction, the new building of the Valeri Gunia Professional State Theatre in the city of Poti will be officially inaugurated within several days. The opening of the 600-seat, 5,700 square meters space, which cost about 11 million GEL to construct, is a special event for the local population and the creative, administrative and technical staff of the theatre who have worked in poor conditions for years. It is also very important for Georgian theatre in general.[[{"fid":"...

Overwhelmed by Istanbul

On Facebook a segment of society continues to deride those Georgians who expressed excitement about meeting with Orhan Pamuk. Why was there any need to invite this "underbred" Turkish "infidel" to Georgia, whose novels do not paint Georgians in the best of light – wonder those who have not yet uttered a single word of discontent about the plans of Georgian singer Nino Katamadze and Georgian composer and conductor Nikoloz Rachveli to give a concert titled "15 Years Together" in Moscow on 28 and...

Soviet Zoo

“Georgia is home for me. Most of my friends live in Georgia too. When I leave for Iran, I will miss it; but, on the other hand, every time I come back I never feel estranged and, therefore, I am not afraid to leave,” said Thomas Dworzak, a German-born photographer who has lived in Georgia for years now. The presentation of his new book Beyond Sochi was held one day before the opening of the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi. It was organized by the Tbilisi Photo Festival at the Writers’ House of...

All the World's Stage

The state of Georgian theatre is not as grave as might be suggested by the lackluster extent to which the Georgian Dramatic Society marked the Day of Georgian Theatre on 14 January. Events of this type are attended by people that have connections with theatre and their only compensation they receive for the anger they feel at thousands of...

Art Village

"An Art Village in Georgia" – that is how Garikula is referred to, the location in Eastern Georgia where the Polish civil architect Vasiliy Bolgarski built a villa as a summer residence for his family in 1885. The property was nationalized after the Sovietization of Georgia, whilst its owner, Bolgarski, was executed by a firing squad. This eye-catching residence, now known as Art Villa Garikula, was taken over by painters in the 1990s and subsequently, in 2000, a commune of artists was...

Indeed, this autumn, appears to be particularly bountiful as Tbilisi will host two international theatre festivals.After the Georgian Dream came to power in October 2012, representatives of theatrical sphere wondered whether the tradition of organizing an annual Tbilisi International Festival of Theatre, which started in 2009 with the support of Tbilisi Mayor's Office, would continue.

The Tbilisi State Conservatoire Today

It has been almost two years now since the composer and performer Rezo Kiknadze was elected rector of the Vano Sarajishvili Tbilisi State Conservatoire. I learnt from him that the Georgian Ministry of Education has been drafting a law on art education which will define the future of higher educational art institutions. In his responses to our questions, Rezo Kiknadze highlighted the current situation in this area and outlined several painful unresolved problems.When you were elected as the...
