YSU theatre-studio had 2 performances in its program: Hello, out there, - answers Jim Dandy (based upon W. Saroyans works) and Qaj Nazar (a play by D. Demirtchyan) musical performances. I think that organizers were pleased with our theatre-studio, because we had not an amateur level, but professional. May be our plays corresponded to some criterions and we have got an official invitation for the 26th of June, - said Karine Davtyan, art director of theatre-studio.
The director of Highfest explained us that this festival has goal to challenge student dramatic groups. Now is the very time for them to show their skills and our Festival had a special program Fringe for students where different groups from Macedonia, Estonia, Croatia and Georgia were involved,-he said.
Both of those plays were put on the stage at the National Academic Theatre after G. Sundukyan. Good for them, they had spent a lot of money on these projects, - with such a delight expressed his thoughts Arthur Ghukasyan. And as for Karine Davtyan, she is very grateful to YSU authorities - Rector, Professor Aram Simonyan, Vice-rector Arsen Karamyan and many others, who had shown support.
Observing the audience opinion, we can see that the result was positive. It is so pleasant that our University takes part in such a Festival. We are proud of our talented students, who can represent our University at the International Festival, - said Narek Asatryan, Chairman of Student Council of the Faculty of Geology. - All could not be perfect, but one can not see positive unless there is no negative in any phenomenon.
This participation created new prospective for our University. Karine Davtyan informed us, that cooperation projects with the organizers of this Festival are foreseen. And Arthur Ghukasyan told us in details. There are 2 spheres of collaboration. 1st is between the culture departments of the universities, within the limits of which our and foreign universities can establish relations (I am a lecturer of several universities abroad), and the second is connected with the progress of young dramatic groups, which need our support.
