NOVOSPASSKY BUSINESS QUARTER TO BE FEATURED IN THE "NIGHT OF MUSEUMS" FOR THE FIRST TIME

19/05/2017

The Novospassky business quarter, which is housed in the buildings of a former 19th century cotton-printing factory, has joined the "Night of Museums" to be held on May 20. On that day, business quarter visitors will have an opportunity to see a quest-play called "Theatrical Factory". Visitors will receive a tour of Novospassky business quarter stairwells that have retained their historical appearance, the secret nooks of the former factory, and will hear some local legends

Admittance to all Night of Museums events at the Novospassky business quarter is free.

The Russian Realist Art Institute based on the premises of the Novospassky business quarter participates in the Night of Museums each year with an extensive program. This year the door of the Novospassky business quarter will be open from 11 a.m. to midnight. One of the most anticipated events of the program will be the open architectural lecture by the Spanish architect Antonio Ortiz (of the Cruz y Ortiz Arquitectos firm). The "Future of Museum" public talk will begin at 7 p.m. Those wishing to attend the lecture need to register in advance by following this link.

The Novospassky business quarter has prepared a theatrical quest-play within its premises, starring actors of the ARONIN SPACE company, who will fill the space of Emil Zindel's historical factory with characters from the past. Workers, clerks, architects, and factory administrators, for whom the cotton-printing factory used to be a second home, will come back to life and return to its premises where they will communicate, squabble, and discuss their daily lives and the eternity. Street fashion from 100 years ago, anticipation of momentous historical events to come, and the atmosphere of decadency will permeate the stairways, squares, and secret nooks of the business quarter.
