Vladimir Supik Archive

The archive of philologist Vladimir Supik comprises digital video recordings and photographs of theater productions and events that took place in significant institutions of the 2000s and 2010s, such as Teatr.doc, the Meyerhold Center, the Center for Dramaturgy and Directing, Praktika, Transformer.doc, the Chekhov Moscow Art Theater, the Melnikov House, the Mikhail Shchepkin House Museum, and others. It also includes archival documents and ephemera related to these events.

The archive was developed based on the personal choice of the collector and the technical possibilities for amateur shooting. Nevertheless, the materials enable researchers to re‑establish how the New Drama theater and drama movement developed (from the project Documentary Play to the eponymous festival), trace the evolution of the verbatim medium at Teatr.doc (through recordings of important performances, including Big Grub, Vodka, F***, TV, Blue Plumber, etc.), learn about early productions by Kirill Serebrennikov, Mikhail Ugarov, Vladimir Pankov, Ruslan Malikov, and others, and examine documentation of theater and contemporary drama festivals, play readings, memorial evenings, rehearsals, lectures, exhibitions, and other events. A significant part of the collection is made up of videos and photographs of projects by Vsevolod Lisovsky and his team, which is especially valuable given that this group’s performances are not repeated, changing with each iteration depending on the venue and the audience.

The archive amplifies the history of contemporary Russian theater and art and establishes connections between events of the past 25 years.
