On November 14 and 21, 2022, the “Ne zrya” Inclusive Laboratory class was conducted by Anna Vishnyakova, head of the musical department of the St. Petersburg Bolshoi Drama Theater.
Participants performed folk songs — lullabies, children's songs and songs about love. They discussed the features of the inclusive presentation, solo parts and the professional performance of the team.
The class is a part of the preparation for the demonstration of the intermediate results of the laboratory, which will take place in December 2022.
The project is implemented by the PRO ARTE Foundation — with the grant provided by the Vladimir Potanin Charitable Foundation, and with the support of the Committee for Culture and Committee for Social Policy of St. Petersburg.
Project partners: Bolshoi Drama Theater named after Georgiy Tovstonogov and Center for Medical and Social Rehabilitation of the Visually Impaired
