Viktor Schilkrot, theatre set designer, Chief artist of the Moscow Theatre on Pokrovka, has joined the Golden Trezzini Awards jury. Applications for 2022 Awards edition are open till September 15.

“For theatre set designers, the Golden Trezzini Awards offer a great opportunity for dialogue with all types of “spatial art”: architecture, landscape design, exhibition and museum design, etc.,” Viktor Schilkrot says. “Here we can speak with colleagues using the language of fine arts and look at our work in this context, regardless of other circumstances that surround us in the theatre (performance, play, director's idea, stage equipment, and much more). This is a competition of plastic ideas and images in its purest form. Here you can’t hide behind Mozart’s music, Grigorovich’s choreography or Ranevskaya’s performance – on the contrary, all this should be expressed in the living space of the stage created by the artist.”

Viktor Schilkrot graduated from the Staging department of Moscow Art Theatre School in 2001. In 2003, he completed his postgraduate studies under the guidance of Oleg Sheintsis. He is the set designer behind numerous theatre performances in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Nizhny Novgorod, Yaroslavl, Perm, Novosibirsk, and other cities of Russia.

From 2002 to 2017, Schilkrot taught at the Department of Scenography and Theatre Technology of Moscow Art Theater School, from 2006 to 2017 he was the Deputy Head of the Department of Scenography and Acting Dean of the Department of Scenography of Moscow Art Theatre School. His works are honoured with such professional awards as Debut, Music Heart of Theatre, and Golden Mask.
