Evgenia Berkovich
Moscow, Russia

Evgenia Berkovich is a Russian theater director. She graduated from Kirill Serebrennikov’s workshop at the Moscow Art Theatre School in 2013 and participated in Serebrennikov’s Seventh Studio project. On May 5, 2023, she was arrested on a case of justification of terrorism. Berkovich is charged with justification of terrorism (Part 2, Article 205.2 of the Criminal Code). She was detained on May 4; her house and her relatives’ house were searched. The claims against the director arose from the production of “Finist Yasny Sokol” – the play, as stated in the official announcement, “about the women who decided to virtually marry representatives of radical Islam and go to them in Syria”. Berkowitz pleaded not guilty. “Finist Yasny Sokol.” is a performance by Berkovich, based on a script by Petriychuk. In 2022, it won the Golden Mask Award for Best Dramaturgical Work and Best Costume Designer.
