    Kirill Serebrennikov: biography

    Kirill Serebrennikov called the master of shocking and a little bit crazy, but in this, perhaps, is his directorial style. His plays and films – exclusive, something that no one before him did and is unlikely to do.

    Kirill Serebrennikov was born on 7 September 1969 in Rostov-on-don. His mother worked as a teacher of Russian language and literature at school, and his father was a surgeon. But, as I wrote the pieces of silver on his own, he is a hereditary filmmaker, because his grandfather graduated from VGIK, even though he was an ordinary Ukrainian shepherd. The future Director went to school with physico-mathematical bias.

    His first performance, Cyril put on the school stage. His setting, he devoted Engels, and she was about weaver-disabled girl without both hands. The experiment was a success – the audience applauded.

    In 1987, the young man went to enter the directing Department in Moscow. But the course Director Anatoly Vasiliev refused him categorically, because Serebrennikov at the time was 17 years old. Then he joined the physics Department of Rostov state University, studied easy, was graduated from the University with «red» diploma. His classmates have been living in America and make decent money, and he chose the theatre path. The Holy spirit was not just at the University Kirill Serebrennikov organized student theater, staged performances as the Director and understand what gets pleasure not from physics, but from creativity.

Time passed and many changed their minds – I am proud that once worked with Serebrennikov.

    At some point the Director realized that it is necessary to move to Moscow, where nobody knows him. Two years after moving pieces of silver worked in television. Start his career in the capital gave the play «Plasticine», which he put in the CBD Roshchin and Kazantsev. The play, none of the Directors not put wanted – six applicants stated that to work with, the material is disgusting to read: the plot boys who have been raped convicts. In an interview Kirill Serebrennikov said that after reading the play I realized to play it you need different. He risked because of the author «Plasticine» no one in Moscow knew of the new Russian drama was not in Vogue. Performance six months did not take journalists trashing him in the media, the audience left, running out of the theater. But at some point things changed, and people crowded to the theatre, changed the temper justice with mercy and critics. Today, the «Clay» is called a cult setting, public breakthrough.

    Personal life

    Personal life Serebrennikov – a closed issue. He is married, but the woman says nothing. We only know that she is the daughter of a Moscow theater Director, whose opinion Kirill Serebrennikov respects. His wife is an art historian and one of the few who tells him the truth. Serebrennikov completely trusts her opinion.

    He doesn’t eat meat because it spares the animals. In her spare time enjoys yoga. And silver coins Shopaholic: from every trip he brings new clothes. In his wardrobe a lot of simple things because of the brands directed not crazy.
