Good news: A new court ruling has lifted the house arrest against the Russian theatre maker Kirill Serebrennikov
. Judge Irina Akkuratowa ruled on Wednesday 11 September in Moscow that his case would be returned to the Attorney General's Office due to contradictions. Now there are no restrictions on his freedom of movement anymore. In August 2019, a report commissioned by the court had already relieved Kirill Serebrennikov of the accusation that he had embezzled subsidies. His premiere of Decamerone
after Giovanni Boccaccio at Deutsches Theater Berlin is scheduled for 8 March
, 2020, with rehearsals scheduled to begin in January 2020.
