Piece by E.Tarakhovskaya after Russian Folktales
- We love our “Pike” because of the pithiness and elegancy. The idea of our performance is based on the Russian folktale about Emelya. A Pike told him about the “magic words” that made all the wishes come true. By will of the Pike, does as Emelya likes - sledge goes home without horses, the wood chopped by itself, and Unsmiling Tsarevna Nesmeyana marries Emelya upon his will.
Funny glove puppets, a golden smiling sun on the round folding screen and many other techniques gladden the spectators during 75 years.
