The Theatre project “Vmeste” (Russian for “Together”) was born in 2012 in St.Petersburg, Russia. Since then, the organisation has been involved in various social-theatre projects and promotes the idea of social theatre in Russia. Vmeste create interdisciplinary, participative and site-specific performances. The artists generate theatre that talks about important social issues, and uses theatre in and as education.
Vmeste is one of very few groups that uses the forum-theatre method in Russia. It co-creates forum-theatre pieces for and with human-rights organizations, students, schoolchildren and migrant children. Moreover, Vmeste has devised and produced six documentary performances inside and outside of theatre, working with museums and circus, non-actors and communities.
