5 January "Vsyo khorosho!", a concert by DEREVO & friends, Akropolis Theatre, Prague (CZ)   DEREVO is a ship with Anton Adasinsky as a captain. The ship was built in Leningrad at the end of the last century. Boatswain Fidel can bet it was a brigantine built. Pilot Zhizha considers this a tea clipper. And Adasinsky just likes to be the lookout...

Dear friends! Slava Polunin has planned and already started possibly the biggest project of the 21st Century, The Tower of Human Foolishness. I heard him and saw the deed of an Architect, and I’ve got permission to talk on his behalf...

How is it called in English; the ‘flash’, the ‘rush’? In Russian this is ‘prikhod’… I sat on the bank and it looked like Alisa was checking the construction for walking on the water’s surface. You know, she’s quite risible…

It was a big risk just to make up our minds to begin that week… Metaphysical Hoffmann-based epics by Mikhail Chemiakin, anti-world of the highest clownery by Slava Polunin, “talking body” of DEREVO by Anton Adasinsky — three apexes of a triangle, equidistant and suddenly united…

Happy New Year!

And we are celebrating the New Year with blinding tiredness!
