The parties entered into an agreement on the implementation of joint projects
TV BRICS signed a cooperation agreement with the Russian Institute of Theatre Arts - GITIS within the framework of the round table "Russian theatres abroad - plenipotentiaries of Russian culture".
The parties will implement joint information projects that help strengthen the positions of the BRICS+ countries in the field of culture and art in the international space, including holding joint creative conferences, round tables, seminars, master classes, festivals.
In addition, TV BRICS and GITIS will begin to develop interaction between expert centres of the BRICS+ countries and research centres.
The international network and the Russian Institute of Theatre Arts plan to improve projects in the field of creative industries of partner countries.
They also organise meetings with leading experts of the BRICS+ countries in order to exchange experience, as well as the results of research and scientific developments.
Grigory Zaslavsky, Rector of the Russian Institute of Theatre Arts, shared his opinion on what the cooperation agreement with the media network means for GITIS.
“I believe that now is the time when you have to start from scratch every day to talk about yourself, about what you do. Therefore, for us, cooperation is an opportunity to enter new markets for teaching the Stanislavsky system. This is an opportunity to find new students and organise visiting GITIS schools in the BRICS countries, which we are certainly very interested in,” said Grigory Zaslavsky.
He said that once GITIS had a branch in Latin America, now the Russian Institute of Theatre Arts has good relations with leading theatre schools in China, for example, with the Central Academy of Drama.
“We communicate with China all the time and at the beginning of next year, I hope, there will be manuals of our outstanding teachers, translated into Chinese,” he said, noting that negotiations on this issue are at the final stage.
Grigory Zaslavsky mentioned that today GITIS has contacts and agreements to continue cooperation with the Central Academy of Drama in India.
During the event, Janna Tolstikova, CEO of TV BRICS, spoke about the response that Russian classical culture, including theatrical art, enjoys among the audience of the BRICS countries.
She also shared the media formats with which today the international TV BRICS network manages to spread information about culture and art.
More than 40 media outlets of the five BRICS countries are TV BRICS partners, with which a regular exchange of content of various genres is carried out.
TV BRICS has extensive experience of cooperation with leading BRICS universities. Last year, for example, TV BRICS held a public lecture on the alliance's partnerships in the humanities, in particular in film and television, for students of the Federal University of Latin American Integration in the state of Parana.
In September 2022, TV BRICS and the State Academic University for the Humanities (GAUGH) signed a cooperation agreement. Furthermore, in November the International Media Network and Mari State University agreed to enhance interaction between academic institutions of the BRICS+ countries and the centres of expertise of the partner countries on the implementation of projects in medicine, education and sustainable development.Photo: GITIS
