Transformation of Russian Club and Rave Spaces of the 1990s: Promotion Group "Tanzpol"

Student: Stepan Saityrly

Supervisor: Elena L. Omelchenko

Faculty: School of Arts and Humanities

Educational Programme: History (Bachelor)

Year of Graduation: 2021

In this work, by comparing two scenes organized by the "Tanzpol" promotion group, we study how Russian club and rave scenes changed during the 1990s. The work is based on contemporary sociological studies of musical scenes and on data from written and visual sources that represent how the selected scenes were organized and designed, how their communities were formed, and what social and cultural practices were adopted in these scenes. During the 1990s, Russian club and rave scenes were commercialized, entered relations with society and the official and unofficial power and authorities, and turned from closed and local to open, inclusive and translocal. The communities of these scenes had become more fluid, had included people of different social statuses, and had homogenized and normalized.
