Show resume

Olga Eliseeva, Alexandr Gusarov, Yulia Sergeeva and Marina Makhaeva, co-authors and performers in the cult play “The Family Semianyki” are coming back with their new play “LoDka” (Saint Pétersburg, Russia). These talented Russian clowns have become masters of their art, mimes with no equals, speaking such a rich, nuanced and universal language with their bodies that they are understood by young and old the world over.
“LoDka” is a play about life in a small theater. The spectators are invited to plunge into a wild and wonderful universe where the stage performers are characters of a play constantly being rewritten. The play leaves them stranded in a small boat in the middle of the endless ocean and the agony of finishing the play drives them crazy!
However, over the course of their adventure, they start realizing that it is not the arrival in a safe harbor that counts. And that it is all about the voyage itself, and the happiness that comes from doing the things that they all love together.
For this new venture the four Semianyki artists have invited Natalia Parashkina. In addition to being an accomplished clown who has performed with Semianyki Theatre in the past, Natalia is a well-known Russian cinema and theater.actress. The director of the show is Sergey Byzgu, an Honored Artist of Russia
