AKHE Group

AKHE: engineering theater

AKHE was founded in 1989 by three members of Boris Ponizovski Theatre "Yes - No" (Maksim Isaev, Pavel Semtchenko, Vadim Vasiliev). The group announced itself as independent (in style and form) and combined elements from performance, cinema and fine arts. The group consists of two to seven members, always including Maksim Isaev and Pavel Semtchenko.

From 1996 on, AHKE saw themselves more as a theater collective, starting with the performance Cataloque of the Hero. Since then, the group participates in theaters festivals worldwide. Its members work as artists, stage designers, film directors, and take part in public art events or collaborative theater projects with groups or theaters, such as Derevo (RUS/GER), Lantaaren (NL), Toihaus (A), Slava Polunin (RUS). 

AKHE sees its interventions as 'Optical Theater' or 'Russian Engineering Theatre'. A such, AKHE considers itself an Operator in an (ideal scenic) Space with (ideal) Light and Sound; thus giving space, light and sound the function of a fully integrated element.
