T he Ekipazh (Crew) club, located in Patriarch's Pond, was home to a high-profile gathering on April 6 with popular TV anchors Arina Sharapova, Anastasia Solovyova, Pyotr Fadeyev, Svetlana Konnegen and Yekaterina Semicheva, eccentric circus producer Valentin Gneushev, stage director Tina Barkalaya, actor Andrei Rudensky (who played artist Stanislav Vytkyevich in the Ksistoff Zanussi film The Brother of My God), journalists and Russian and foreign businessmen.
The occasion for the VIP gathering was club's enlargement. Ekipazh, styled as a sailing vessel, now opened a second floor, to be more precise, the upper deck. The birth of yet another cozy nook in the jungles of the hustling city was presented by the Quartet band, especially popular among Moscow's intellectuals, and the prize-winning artist Tatyana Nazarenko.
For nearly 6 years now the club has been and remains to be one of the most popular hangouts of Moscow's show-biz and financial and business elites.
Despite the presence of many celebrities, the center of attention was one of the most charming members of the crew' the raven-head femme fatale and acclaimed artist hostingpersonal exhibitions around the world, Tatyana Nazarenko who displayed full-size wooden dummies.
