actors creates a transparent prism of joy on the ERARTA stage. The
acute angle of theatrical improvisation breaks the usual
boundaries of the genre. The resulting emptiness is filled with
short-term narratives by dreamnappers, lights shakers, and

Direction: Engineering Theatre AKHE
Performers: Maksim Isaev, Pavel Semchenko, Natalya Shamina, Gala Samoilova, Serzh Karion, Nikolay Khamov, Valeriy Keft, Sergey Azeev
Music: Denis Antonov
At two pm, on the sunniest day, July 9th, when, in the ship channel of Saint-Petersburg port, against the background of a bridge under construction, two white ships melt into one and two liners fly across the sky, the AKHE Theater will begin to foam the afternoon on the beautiful roof of the DOT space. Two absurdly romantic couples and their companions will mix up a dynamic, occasionally hot cocktail from the episodes of Boris Vian's novel «L'Écume des jours» against one-of-a-kind landscape backdrop. Arrive early and let the the breathtaking view completely sweep out what is left of the unnecessary literature knowledge, and your thoughts be taken far away from the down-to-earth «who, what and why» under the influence of refreshing cocktails. Simply enjoy the action, the music, the sea view and the summer!
«Pokryshkin carefully engrafts the сutting from the cherry orchard in the delicate orchid of French bebop, which grows on the wasteland of Russian absurdity. Kharms eradicates the weeds of humdrum from this wasteland, while Stravinsky constructs the funeral march out of the dirt of days. Dziga Vertov records everything with his smart-phone and puts online. Sort of». Maksim Isaev
