About a performance::

In honor of the Literature Year and one of its pillars of Fedor Dostoevsky, Engineering Theatre AKHE introduced outdoor performance based on the novel of the French writer Boris Vian «Foam Days» («L’écume des jours»).

«L’écume des jours» is a free adaptation of selected episodes of the novel.

Pokryshkin carefully instills stalk from a cherry garden to the coddled orchid of the French bebop growing on wasteland of Russian absurd. Kharms weeds out of this wasteland of everyday routine, and Stravinsky constructs a funeral march of trash days. All of this was taken by mobile phone of Dziga Vertov and puts into the network. As if.
