The first immersive luxury dinner based on actual historical materials. Located in the house of Ryleev – one of the main decembrists from 19th century. The spectators were invited to participate in the court on Decembrists case. During the theatrical show spectators examined real historical facts and undertook the roles of prosecutors and barristers. Spectators had to communicate not only with the actors of the Play, but between themselves.
My idea was following:
I wanted to create a mechanism of communication between people and to find out how populistic information or artistic narrative could affect people. There were 20 shows during a month of project life. Despite of the high PR indicators, 'Decembrists' show was closed because of the poor operational management.
First of all – high PR results and positive feedbacks.
Secondly – we involved spectators in a play. Well educated, upper-middle class and premium audience were shouting from the scene: 'Defendant should be killed'. We spoke with spectators about revolution, murder, crime and punishment, populism and post-truth.
Decembrists. Banned organization in Russia.
