Boris Yukhananov

Борис Юхананов



Boris Yukhananov is a theater and film director, theoretician and teacher, who, in just one season, turned the tired, former Stanislavsky Drama Theatre into the Stanislavsky Electrotheatre, one of contemporary Moscow’s most exciting venues.

Yukhananov graduated from the legendary directing class of Anatoly Efros and Anatoly Vasilyev at the State Institute of Theatre Arts (GITIS) in 1986.

He was a key figure in the Soviet artistic underground in the 1980s, and was a founding member of the so-called “parallel cinema,” which appeared under the banner of CINE PHANTOM in 1986 as an antidote to official Soviet cinema.
