Sasha Weinstein

Alexander Weinstein, was born in 1987 in St. Petersburg, Russia. Master of arts, theater producer, engine for progress, International Network for Contemporary Performing Arts (Brussels) consultant, Fulbright Visiting scholar, CEO in Leludi and Skorohod venue.

He has began his career as an art-manager in 2009, when he has established theatre school named Leludi. This independent educational project is currently known as the largest Russian private theatre school. Leludi also supports senior citizens to go on stage and perform.

Later in 2012 he founded "Platform Skorokhod». This multifunctional venue is unique as it's the only one of a kind in Saint-Petersburg which has no government support and functions. Skorohod gives opportunity for young theatre groups to show their works.

Working both locally and internationally Alexander was co-founder in EU funded big scale project "Meeting the Odyssey", where 14 partners from different countries gathered on one sailing boat and toured from St.Petersburg, Russia to Corfu, Greece staging shows to challenge current refugee crisis in Europe.

He is good in combining creative ideas, business models and social work. "My goal -- is to encourage more people to work independently, means without state support. To be sustainable and to influence on social issues".

Alexander's latest interest is lying in the field tolerance and multiculturalism, which lately became unpopular worldwide, especially in Russia. He is trying to work with growing level of aggression through means of theatre and education.
