The economic situation

The Theatre-Academy INTERSTUDIO is a state approved academy and is supported by the russian ministery of culture. The scholarships, the salaries and contributions for the students are paid regularely by the ministery, but they don't satisfy even the modest requirements. And for worse, in the last months two times the banks, where they kept their account, crashed shortly after receiving the monthly contribution. The financial situation is dramatic, if not desperate.
Because INTERSTUDIO is a theatre-academy without continous theatre performances, there are no contributions for material and other expenses, because they are not needed for performances, 'only' for study. So special projects and festivals are always a walk on very thin ice, and the every day teaching can be maintained only by 'improvising'.
Another aspect: because of the growing stability of the rubel, the difference between rubel and foreign money gets more and more marginal. May this be healthy for the national budget, it has a bad influence on the financial situation of the academy, because many needs could be satisfied in the last years by fees earned in the west. One dollar was far more valuable in Russia than in the west, by this the academy could survive by 'private contributions' of the members of the board. This is not working any more.
The members of the academy search for new ways to raise money. They plan performances for the tourists visiting the Catherine Palace in the summer. The professors give workshop in the west, lecture or work as directors in residence. But this is not enough, and there is no light at the end of the tunnel.

What's needed

I hereby list some things which are needed urgently. This list is not thought as a begging letter, but it can demonstrate the economic situation of the academy (see above). If anyone of the readers could contribute something, please refer to the author. Every contribution will be sent to the academy immediately.
