Theatre ScenA8 – Artistic director – Andriy Sendetskyy

Until May 2020, the Lviv Author’s Drama Theatre and the Experimental-Educational Theatre Laboratory operated under the same name “SPIROGRAPH”. According to the creative staff of the Theatre and with the consent of the founder and artistic director in September 2020, the Theatre began its 16th creative season called “ScenA8”.

“ScenA8” – a stage, platform, platform, podium, or just a creative space in which an art product is created without unnecessary conventions – ideological, repertoire, age, etc.

It is the Arabic numeral “8” that is the dualistic reflection on the sign of infinity. Inexhaustibility in opportunities, aspirations, creative potential, approaches – the critical universe of the philosophy of LAD Theatre “ScenA8”.

The Theatre was founded in 2005. Since 2010 it has been operating as a permanent one, and since 2020 it has been called the Lviv Author’s Drama Theatre “ScenA8” (after this – the Theatre).

He began his work with the premiere of the fairy-tale play “Flower Shop” directed by the author of the play and artistic director of the Theatre Andriy Sendetskyy. The patron and promoter of the Experimental-Educational Theatre Laboratory “SPIROGRAPH”, which works under the creative and academic care of LAD Theatre “ScenA8”, is the Lviv Regional Charitable Foundation “TORBA”, thanks to which gifted children and young people from low-income families have the opportunity to practice, burns, etc.

For years, the Theatre has been trying to reach local authorities at the city and regional levels to lease its roof over its head office. We are listened to, but, unfortunately, we have not been heard for years. Today, having no home, the Theatre continues its activities on the stages of Lviv partner theaters: Oleg Novokhatsky Lviv Theatre of Variety Miniatures “People and Puppets”, Lviv Academic Regional Puppet Theatre, the First Ukrainian Theatre for Young Spectators, Lesya Ukrainka Lviv Drama Theatre, Maria Zankovetska Lviv National Academic Drama Theatre.

The Theatre’s repertoire includes performances for both adults and children. As of September 2020, the current repertoire of the Theatre consists of 12 performances. Three premieres are being prepared for release.

We continue to create performances to which we invite and wait for our audience, which, in turn, we traditionally reciprocate with a positive attitude and love.
