The Meyerhold Centre
With the support of the French Embassy and the French Institute in Russia
Three shows of the festival - three histories that combine gesture and words. If we change the rules and take away leader roles from actors -What could happen between them: contact or conflict, do they attract themselves or not, can they be partners or will they be competitors?
Whatever may happen, plastics and text have chosen and changed each other – as if a ghostly dance was washing out the borders of the Classical Greek tragedy, an old story adapted on stage and that seeks a plastic expression, all the words of an absurd novel, go away and look for happiness in the physical theatre, and let only a few captions hanging above the stage.
