Transdisciplinary collective ORTA was founded in 2015 by director Rustem Begenov and actress Alexandra Morozova. Since 2017, the group also includes artist Alexander Bakanov, photo and video designer Daria Dzhumelya and artist Sabina Kuangalieva. ORTA explores the possibilities of human creativity through the creation of Universal Projects, including theatre, visual arts and new media art, video and film, technology, social research and philosophy, as well as robotic, computer, electronic engineering and applied arts. Since 2017, their projects have been mainly focused on the New Genius Theory of the artist Sergey Kalmykov (1891-1967).
