Mikhail Saakashvili came to power in Georgia in 2004. Since then the policy of the state has been changed drastically. Unfortunately it has touched the Georgian art and cultural life as well. Practically the entire faculty of the Conservatoire and the Art Academy were replaced. Senior professors in almost all universities were forced to retire. The leaders of many state theatres were dismissed as well. Among those was a world-renowned Georgian director Robert Sturua, and although his Moscow productions are still performed in front of full-house, he can't work in his home country.
