The Theatre «Ilkhom» was founded in 1976 by the director Mark Weil, who was its artistic director until 2007. "Maskharaboz-76" is the first theatrical performance made in the tradition of street theatre. «ILkhom» is one of the first professional theatres in the former Soviet Union’s territory.
Theatre hall accommodates 150 visitors. There has been a School of Dramatic Art since 1989. Its masters are the leading actors of «ILkhom», highly qualified experts of various profiles. After graduating, the students become members of theatrical troupe. The performances “Happy beggars” and "White White Black Stork" are very popular among viewers.
Theatre «ILkhom» is not only famous for its theatrical performances but also different projects. Music and theatre festivals, exhibitions of young artists are held here.As Mark Weil said, there were three stages of the theatre development:
The first stage began in 1976 when the first tours of the theatre took place in Moscow. The repertoire of "Ilkhom" drew a wide response. The main performances of this period are: "Duck Hunt" by A. Vampilov, "Petty Bourgeois Wedding" by B. Brecht and "A scene at the fountain" by S. Zlotnikov.
The second stage of the theatre development refers to the 1990. The performances of this period are "Ragtime for Clowns" by M. Weil, "Clomadeus" by M. Weil, and "Petrushka" (based on Stravinsky's ballet "Petrushka").
The third stage begins with the beginning of an independent Uzbekistan. According to Mark Weil, the performance “Happy beggars” is the best example of that period. The director said: “The traditional masks of the genre and Uzbek maskharaboz are alive”. This period also includes: "White White Black Stork", "Imitation of the Koran".
