Pavel Serdyukov is an Israeli-Russian theatre and film director. He graduated from the Electrotheatre Stanislavsky Master Program in Theatre Directing and Moscow School of New Cinema in Film Directing. He also has a PhD in Computer Science and is an award winning researcher with a focus on artificial intelligence and web search. After the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Pavel had left Russia and recently settled in Tel-Aviv, where he is currently a resident at Artport.
Serdyukov is a performance maker and film director, whose works focus on issues regarding our relations toward the Other, including non-human subjects or everyday objects.
In his performance practice, Pavel takes inspiration from postdramatic theatre techniques, with the use of non-dramatic texts to combine scripted and improvised elements. These “anti-narrative productions” blur the line between audience and performer by allowing for the agency of viewers to shape performances.
Pavel Serdyukov is an Artists at Risk (AR) Resident at Artport Tel Aviv.
