The play was inspired by the extraordinary life and work of the pioneering cinematography artist Georges Mélies's . The authors welcome the viewers in the land of magicians, magical skills and magic.  The magic tricks Méliès pioneered in film remained unique until today.  

"We encounter Georges Méliès at a retired film artists shelter when he approaches the end of his days.  (...) He uses magical tricks to bring back memories. (...) Death appears assuming the male form, Méliès however has no intention of voluntarily crossing to the other side. He attempts to cheat Death with his tricks.  Yet, Death is quite an illusionist himself.  The duel that starts is brimming with gags from the silent film era, at times becoming dance macabre, and finally ending in the victory of Death.  Méliès' soul raises up in the air and goes straight into his most renown 1902 film A trip to the moon.  A beautiful metaphor."

With Miravella, her second opus for children, Catherine Dreyfus transports us to our origins to explore the animal within. A tangible, vibrant, rhythmic, and colourful dance invites us on a journey to the edge of a surreal, poetic and wonderfully imaginative world.
In the beginning we observe life in its simplest cellular and organic form.  Within fragile bubbles the first movements take form and evolve with time to become a deep sea-scape. Bodies shed their cocoons and the animal kingdom is born. They crawl, sniff around, snuggle or confront each other. A delightful bestiary comes to life: under water organisms create a ballet of light, sea lions undulate, wings flutter, lovers parade, cocks fight, love-birds coo…

 

"Vanya A story about Vanya and the perplexity of the Russian soul" Karlsson Haus (St. Petersburg, Russia)

theatre director: Anna Pawińska
directed by: Alexei Leliavski
set design by: Alexander Warhamieiev
music by: Leonid Pavlenok

cast: Mikhail Szelomiencev


ages: 16+
70 min.

Somewhere around us, close or far, there must be a Dragon.  If it is nowhere to be found, it needs to be promptly invented.  Who would we fight then, if there was no dragon? What would we need our wonderful and brave heroes for? We all know we can't live without them. If it hadn't been for them, who would have helped us? Who would have saved us? If only in a fairytale? It will certainly be Vanya who will save us.
The story about a miraculous showing of Vanya, his battle against the terrifying monster (Dragon) and the end of his adventures finally will let us understand the perplexing Russian soul a little better.

"One-man show, played brilliantly by Mikhail Szelomiencev and the whole ensemble of simple wooden figures in a somewhat claustrophobic space, was not only an opportunity to demonstrate spectacular animation and puppetry,  as well as amazing acting, but also a poignant reflection on human nature.  (…)”

Marek Waszkiel, „Teatr Lalek” no 1/2016
