On January 12-14, 2017 at 8.00 pm
The Museum of contemporary art ERARTA

St-Petersburg | Russia

Engineering Theatre AKHE and the guests will present a momentary cabaret «GLORIA TRANSIT» (presentation of objects and phenomena with the music, or miniatures, which you will not see ever again!)

During three nights, on the eve of the Old New Year, using AKHE-engineers drawings the group of 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 launchers of air coyote. They do not remember their steps. They are coming!

Among them:

12.01.17 - "The Dreamnappers" - The Rhapsody of holes


13.01.17 - "The lights shakers" - Urban-carols


14.01.17 — "The launchers of air coyote" — monocomic

In November we will show the whole cycle of production "BETWEEN TWO".

The Tibetan Book of the Dead “Bardo Thodol” is the base of "BETWEEN TWO". But the show won't be just an illustration or a paraphrase of the text. We expect it would be detailed and leisured contemplation about beauty of The Life and majesty of The Death. And the show doesn't become а summarizing, but new knowledge about ourselves with mistakes, experiments and paradoxes.

For now, we prepared 5 episodes. Each of them has their own design, set and different context.

On November 8 – 12, 2016 we will perform 4 episodes of "BETWEEN TWO" at the Internationales Theaterfestival UNIDRAM in Potsdam (Germany):

The Trial. Six worlds”, Choosing the Womb”, Carmic Storm”, Self-Realization”

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

On May 2-3, 2016 Engineering Theatre AKHE & Theatre CINEMA (PL) will present a work-in-progress “CARD FILE” on The New Stage of Alexandrinsky Theatre.

In 1960 the classic of the Polish avant-garde and the finest poet Tadeusz Różewicz has published "Card file". It is an absurdist play about confusion of post-war generation,  impossibility to carry on intelligent family dialogue and about loss of personal identity.

Theatre AKHE & Theatre CINEMA the play seemed to be relevant today. The reason is in its radical form of psychological authenticity, recognition of situations and possibilities of interaction with the text.

Theaters AKHE and CINEMA intend to create a new sequence of semantic text card location where the characters of the play will find hope for understanding, the ability to transform or just a hot coffee.

"Card file" is a visual dramedi. More than words.
