Sasha Weinstein

Alexander Weinstein, was born in 1987 in St. Petersburg, Russia. Producer in the field of performing arts. Consultant of the International Network of Contemporary Performing Arts (IETM), Fulbright Award Recipient, graduate of the School of Theater Leadership, CIM.

Part Academy grew out of the Leludi acting school. In 2009, a tandem of director and producer, Tanya and Sasha Weinstein, founded the center, which soon became the most successful private acting school in St. Petersburg. Since 2014, the school has started to cooperate with SPbGIKiT — the largest creative university in Russia. This made it possible to train students professionally and to issue a diploma of higher education at the end of the course.

Now Part is an Academy of Performing Arts with educational campuses in Russia, Armenia, Georgia, Kazakstan. Here you can get education in the field of theater, cinema and modern dance, try yourself in producing and screenwriting, go to practice in the USA or create your own project.

In 2012, Alexander founded the Skorokhod Platform. Skorokhod is a home venue for "Takoy Teatr" (Such a Theater).

Working both locally and internationally, Alexander was a co-founder in the EU-funded large-scale project "Meeting the Odyssey", where 14 partners from different countries gathered on one sailing boat and went on a tour from St. Petersburg, Russia to Corfu, Greece, dedicated to the refugee crisis in Europe.
