Russian Revolution
RUSSIAN experimental theatre company Derevo bring Red Zone to the Gantry tomorrow (Friday).
The cultural thaw in the former USSR has heralded a flurry of plays
DEREVO - 4 heads
examining urgent and topical social issues. From this background come Derevo, whose name means tree, the brainchild of performer/director/designer Anton Adassinky, former front man and choreographer with rock troupe Avia.
The company from St Petersburg,
who played to huge sellout success

at the Edinburgh Festival, present a
darkly stylish show combining physi-
cal theatre, anarchic and explosive
movement, lighting and a gripping
soundtrack, designed to take the
audience through an utterly mes-
merising and dark visual landscape.
Not for the faint hearted, Red Zone

will terrify you with grotesque imagery, tantalise you with metaphysics and hurt your ears with very loud noises.
Then on Saturday the Natalie
MacMaster Band are at the Gantry
playing their own inimitable style of
folk music.

The Canadian, from Cape Breton,
is a diva in the fiddle world who has
supported Carlos Santana and The
Chieftains and entertains with a mix
of fast moving reels to powerful
laments. Natalie and her band
promise to play up a storm.
