My love for creating original work grew partly out of my love for acting and storytelling, and partly to overcome bouts of unwanted unemployment owing to a highly saturated Asian market.
I had a choice. Either I continued sitting and blaming the unfair industry or I start doing something about it.
So I decided to give KrisP. a chance to shine.
Being trained in both traditional and contemporary theatre in Russia, Asia and Europe I’m always interested in experimenting with different performance techniques, genres and styles, exploring the possibilities of performance. I like theatre that is daring, adventurous and multidisciplinary. With KrisP I hope to give other creatives, who struggle to find their voices, the opportunities too. I believe creative collaborations are probably one of the most important elements to one’s success. I was definitely lucky enough in my life to meet people who were very supportive and caring and who basically pushed me towards theatre-making and producing my own work. Therefore its one of my main objectives to work and help other creatives to find their inner artists too.
I want to create theatre with people, for people, about people. Theatre where you can come in comfortable clothes, have a hot drink or a glass of wine, sit down and have a conversation about the world today.
I don’t expect everyone understand or like my work. Theatre and Art should stimulate. People come to theatre, to be stimulated, to be involved and feeling intensely without the traumas that real-life experiences hold for us. With KrisP I am committed to trust and develop my ideas and aesthetics further. I want to have the ability to create my own projects and stories that I’m passionate and care about Because I know if I care, my audience would too.
Be bold, be influenced, be affected.
