V-A-C Foundation and Whitechapel Gallery, London, are proud to present the third edition of the V-A-C Live performance series.
Russian collective VASYA RUN bring their latest performance to the UK for the very first time. Nine young men aged between 18 to 26 from London and Moscow feature in this interactive and experimental work which blurs the boundaries between theatre, music and contemporary art.
“The aim is not to make [the performers] actors. During the actual performance they need to perform in a state of self-awareness, inner spontaneity, inner freedom and freedom of physical expression.“ — VASYA RUN
VASYA RUN is an anonymous platform investigating street subcultures, radical youth and teenage scenes, particularly amongst the generation born in the early nineties, following the collapse of the Soviet Union. Their research explores the gender politics of youth and what happens to subcultures when they become commodified.
