The debate is attended by 20 experts – key figures from the world of theater, cinema and media:
- theater critic and associate professor at the Moscow Art Theater School Pavel Rudnev,
- actress Varvara Shmykova,
- head of radio “Culture” Ksenia Lamshina,

- playwright and art director of the Lyubimovka Drama Festival Olzhas Zhanaidarov
and many others.
According to the Festival President Yana Balachevtsevain the first season, all experts unanimously recognized online as a new theatrical format.
“We are building an open theater that does not dictate any rules and has no boundaries. The viewer always has the feeling that the actor is playing just for him. A very high degree of trust and intimacy. And the theater is built differently, there are other directorial moves,” – said Yana Balachevtseva.
Onlife IDEA Fest gives viewers open access to theatrical art: thanks to modern digital technologies, all performances can be watched on any device.
Opening of the festival on October 1 at 19:00 (Moscow time).
