YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 28, ARMENPRESS: During its 37th theatrical session,
which starts March, Yerevan State Mime Theater will perform on tour
in Cyprus. Jirayr Dadasyan, artistic director of the theater, said
today at a meeting with journalists that "Mime" studio will join
the theatrical performances in Cyprus and "will help to present the
Armenian mime theatrical culture more sufficiently".

"There is an invitation from Mongolia, too; however our visit has
not been approved yet. Our theater has been invited to partake in
the international mime festival of Munich to be held in autumn,"
Jirayr Dadasyan said.

As to the issues of the theater, Jirayr Dadasyan mentioned about
lack of corresponding artists and a building. "Now we rent one of the
rehearsal halls of the Young Spectator's Theater in assistance with
the Ministry of Culture, and we have a right to stage a performance in
the theater's hall every Thursday," he said. He also mentioned about
the lack of visitors. "Along with the classical theater, this style
has its unique place and each art lover can find original feelings
and thoughts with some other interpretation," Jirayr Dadasyan said.
