WORLD THEATER DAY WAS CELEBRATED BY STUDENTS
According to the tradition, at the initiative of YSU Cultural Centre, a group of students visited Komitas Pantheon to pay tribute to the virtuosi of the Armenian theater.

In 1961 the International Theater Institute, UNESCO declared March 27 as the World Theater Day. It is celebrated in almost all countries and is a real feast not only for the actors but also for the spectators.

 

Members of the Theater Studio “Universitarian” were accompanied by the Director of YSU Cultural Centre Karine Davtyan. During the visit she made a focus on the works and interesting episodes from the life of prominent figures of the Armenian theater.

 

“If we study, we will see that even the best actor in the world of cinema is a great actor at the theater. This phenomenon shows that everything is based on theater,” - says Karine Davtyan.

 

 

Students are proud that they are the representatives of a talented and intellectual nation, which gives them more inspiration to act and live.

 

“The theater is very important for me. It is like a mirror, where I could catch myself. I study the works of famous artists, and not only,” – said Elen Babajanyan, member of the Theater Studio “Universitarian”.

 

Ani Mikayelyan said that the visit to pantheon on the World Theater Day is symbolic. Young people should not only remember and appreciate the tremendous legacy of the devotees of the theater, but also create something new.

 

After laying flowers to the graves of the great figures, students recited some passages from famous works of literature.
