On February 18,at the Kariev Theatre in Kazan, Tatarstan President Rustam Minnikhanov attended a performance of the E-Motion Inclusive Art Studio.
The What I Remember About Myself tells of a successful young man who moved from Tatarstan to Sydney (Australia). In his dreams, he has images from childhood, and, despite a successful career, he increasingly wants to return to his motherland.
The performance, involving actors with disabilities, is in Russian and Tatar languages. The socialization of this category of people through theatrical creativity is the main mission of the E-motion studio. Over the three years of work, the actors of the studio have played more than 40 performances in 12 cities of Russia.
In December 2019, Head of the E-Motion Studio Inessa Klyukina won the Volunteer of the Year nomination in the Volunteer of Russia contest. The award was presented to her by Russian President Vladimir Putin. Moreover, E-Motion studio was recognized as the best volunteer project in the Equality of Opportunity nomination.
At the end of the performance, Minnikhanov thanked the E-Motion studio, noting the high level of stage skill. “In a short time, the E-Motion studio has proved itself at the Russian level as a very highly professional team. We have seen this today. The performance raises an important topic, which the artists have perfectly visualized,” Tatarstan President emphasized.
He added that the achievements of the studio show that, if desired, everyone can become successful, despite the difficult life situation.
Then, Minnikhanov handed in a letter of thanks from Tatarstan President for the contribution to the development of inclusive culture in society and a certificate for the purchase of special equipment to the E-Motion Studio.
