Svobodin Aleksandr

Svobodin Aleksandr

Aleksandr Svobodin lived and worked in Moscow. His strange surname, Liberté (from the French for “freedom”) was evidently a revolutionary nickname of his father’s, which was subsequently on the family’s documents – he never knew his actual family surname.
 
Aleksandr Svobodin’s father was, at the beginning of the 20’s, a member of the Comintern and was killed in 1923 during the uprising in Germany; his mother was taken prisoner at the end of the 30’s.

Svobodin stood at the source of the Sovremennik Theatre’s creation, where in 1968 Oleg Efremov staged his play “The People’s Freedom Fighters.” He worked for many years with the journal, “Theatre,” and later worked in the Central Script/Screenplay Studio.
