An international conference was held at the Kazakh National Academy of Arts named after Temirbek Zhurgenov, where problems of the modern development of theatrical art, new perspectives, start-ups and projects of future art workers were discussed. At the conference held within the framework of the program “Looking into the Future: Spiritual Revival”, scientists and teachers, in addition to the creative and educational processes, discussed the educational and research activities of theater universities and schools. So, now there are many modern trends and directions in the art of the theater. For example, the traditional school, the second - innovative, which arose as a result of the search and various studies. “By combining these two areas together, future specialists will have the opportunity to become highly qualified specialists with diverse knowledge,” noted the scientists.
The conference was attended by scholars of theatrical art from Germany, Russia and Moldova. Svetlana Tyrceu, Doctor of Arts (Moldova) says: “When I saw performances in St. Petersburg theaters, I noticed new genres for the theater. What does it mean? This means that students need to be taught in new ways. I started studying these trends nine years ago and noticed that the west considers its schools to be strong and the countries of the East hold the same point of view. And this is not true. There are no theater schools with established principles. It is necessary to adapt to current trends and challenges.
Opinions about the need to work together, in order to develop theatrical art, were expressed by scientists and professors at an international conference dedicated to the 70th anniversary of the famous art historian, honored worker of the country Kulbaev Aman. Theater scholars and art historians from Russia, Georgia, Moldova, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan discussed the mechanisms of the development of modern theater art.
