Since 2005, Svetlana is one of the leading actresses of the Generation Theater. This is one of the few loft theaters in St. Petersburg that organizes performances in the factory premises and refuses the classical division of space into a stage and an auditorium. The theater’s repertoire is surprisingly eclectic: here are classical dramas, epics, and quite modern productions.
Among the theatrical works of Svetlana: the role of Julia Filipovna in the play “Summer Residents” by M. Gorky, Cornelia in the production of “Without Lear”, Antigone in the eponymous work by Sophocles, Lucy in Bruckner’s Diseases of Youth and many others. In addition, among successful performances, it is worth mentioning “My beloved 2soffka”, “Lightbulb” and the somewhat unexpected role of Spring in Ostrovsky's “Snow Maiden”. She worked on most of the roles under the leadership of Danila Kogorodsky and German director Eberhard Köhler. In addition, the actress took part in the joint work of the “Theater of Generations” and the Youth Theater - for example, “Far on the Island of Chad”.
This work is worth noting separately, as it aroused the interest of numerous theater critics. It was as if a play intended for a children's audience made many adults change their attitude to the concept of “animal in man”, gradually revealing the true connection with nature and denying everything superficial. Theater actors brilliantly coped with their task, masterfully using plastic, honed body language. Svetlana appeared before the audience in the image of an infinitely beautiful black panther. One of the new bright roles is the Duchess in the “bloody pun” “By the Law of Honor”. The husband of the actress was also involved in the work on this production.

In Anton Bormatov’s film “Relative”, Svetlana got the main role and coped with it “perfectly”. Her heroine Katya was more than convincing. In general, viewers and critics reacted positively to the work of the young actress, noting that her play has the best features of “classical Russian dramatic art”. The series "Snipers. Love at gunpoint ”was considered by many to be unsuccessful, but noted a very good play by the actors, including Smirnova-Katsagadzhieva.
