April, 20

The relations between DEREVO and Russia have escalated, similar to the story of Archimedes in his bath. The more you go in, the more you are left out. Or like a newly married couple who straight from the registry to smoke whilst waiting for a divorce. Anton's Birthday. The labyrinths of rooms. A knight peeking in the window. A strange controversy: if you speak with a friend-astronaut from a neighbouring galaxy, it may be the fact that he has already been dead for a thousand years... "Legend of Love" ballet danced and described by Darya Pavlenko in the kitchen will never be demoded... The jealous sound of the taxi which takes DEREVO away. And I'm sure that the blue "ZIL" lorries are still watering the city in the mornings. But we are still sleeping at that time...

Dear DEREVO fans, whoever stole the Death mask after the "ONCE..." performance? Give it back, please, or you may fall terribly ill.

Windmills are the symbol of desire. The desire to fly away transforms into the energy. The desire of people to see DEREVO in Russia transformed into the right energy - and here we are. With evergreen "ONCE..." and with the new show "ISLANDS in the STREAM". The music to this latest production has just been released on CD. It was mixed at the Hotel "Astoria" in Budapest. At 4 o'clock in the morning the mixing was finished. But a neighbour knocked on the door and asked us not to turn off the music. He just couldn't imagine the rest of the night without it...
