«Theatre «InZhest «- a phenomenon in the Belarusian theater art unusual. For this is the only team in the capital, which can be called truly experimental. The performances of the theater are made up of a diverse palette of symbols, metaphors and subtexts. Theatre without words attracts not only original directorial, stage design finds and true. The truth about our time, about ourselves»
«For the past 30 years have to ingest in one form or another to deal with a variety of bureaucratic and financial difficulties, to create a new language of theatrical gesture -» Another gesture. «
«InZhest offers his particular vision of the crossroads of cultures, which is possibly Belarus. Their theatrical influence eclectic: from ancient Chinese philosophy and Japanese Butoh dance to comedy del’arte, Dada and Beckett’s theater of the absurd. But they’re doing something new. In contrast to the rest of the contemporary art of Belarus, Inzhest very persistent in his expression dark and offers something more. For them the body — is the center of concentration of pain, but also a source of hope «
