Like an abandoned alien spaceship, the building of Dostoevsky’s Drama Theatre stands on the bank of Volkhov River, only a kilometer away from the walls of famous Novgorod Kremlin in Russia.

An Architecture freak, unloved and uncared for, it sails high above the comforting provinciality of Novgorod the Great.

Erected during the final years of Soviet Rule, this remarkable example of modernist architecture has, for many decades, continued to mock the ancient heritage of the city, as well as the mediocre tastes of its populace.

The story of theater’s uneasy survival, it’s persistent inability to fit into the Novgorod’s surroundings, and its slow but sure demise at the hands of greedy bureaucrats become a direct metaphor for the Russian society today.
