To work for the center some of the most famous and talented Belarusian authors were invited: Leonid Pronchak, the lyricist, became Director of the producer center "Spamash"; Vladimir Kondrusevich, the composer, was appointed as Art Director.
Vladimir Kondrusevich is a Belarusian composer, author of many large-scale musical works including the ballets “Krylya pamyaty” (“Wings of memory”)" and “Mefisto”, the musicals “Julia” and “Stackan vody” ("A glass of water”). In 2008, the composer presented a new performance which was the musical "Biker" (based on the novel by Choderlos de Laclos “Dangerous liaisons”) to the audience. Also, he is the author of the music to more than 150 performances and 50 films. Since 1979 he had been a member of the Union of composers of the USSR (since 1992, the Union of composers of the Republic of Belarus). Vladimir Kondrusevich is a laureate of the international all-Union and Republican contests and festivals. He was awarded a medal of Francisc Skaryna.
The first step to realize this goal was the search for the young and talented artists all over Belarus. First of all, the direction of the Producer center "Spamash" paid attention to the new-coming but promising artists, who according to their social status (children from single-parent families, orphans and others) desperately needed support. After all, as you know, many capable guys do not have the necessary funds to invest them in their creative development – to buy the repertoire, to pay for classes with teachers of vocal, choreography, to make the costumes, etc. And in the framework of the Producer center you can bring up these stars ready to start their career on the big stage not only in Belarus, but also in other countries.
In a short period of time, a team of the Producer center held castings in different regions of Belarus, and the first artists who in April 2005 were employed by the center were Alena Lanskaya and Ivan Buslaj. Later, other popular today’s performers joined the team of "Spamash".
After several years of intense creative activities it became clear that the Producer center «Spamash», in fact, is ready to sail on the waves of the Belarusian show business.
