"I saw this group on a trip to St. Petersburg, and they blew me away!
I couldn't wait to share them with you!"

USA Springfield Arts Council Executive Director J. Chris Moore

†Latest touring show, "Starry Stories," tells a cheerful, yet philosophical, tale with dance, mime and music.
It's a cross between Tim Burton movies and Cirque du Soleil - in short, arty, gently weird family fare.

Theatre Shkidy, based in St. Petersburg, Russia. The group has earned numerous international awards during its ten-year history including: Presidentís Award, Turkish Theatre Union; Kaukliar Award, 7th International Festival, Slovakia; Rainbow Award, International Theatre Festival, Russia; Raikin Award, Open Competition of Variety Performers, Russia; Pushkin Award, International Carnival of Pushkin, Russia; Generation XXI Award, International Theatrical Festival, Russia; Grand Prix Award, Good Morning Festival.

Shkidy is a highly visual and physical theatre. The action in Theatre Shkidy performances has a psychological base, a strong emotional center, and a clear storyline. But the means of expression is through physical, nonverbal interaction. Every scene develops unexpectedly, but with inexplicable ease, as naturally as a good mood.

Shkidy has a fresh, wild, and eclectic style derived from a variety of origins. Shkidy organically combines disparate elements from many mime and theatrical clowning schools, including Comedie dell'Arte, L'Ecole Jacques Lecoq, Vsevolod Meyerhold, Jerzy Grotowski, Konstantin Stanivslavski, Mikhael Chekhov, Slava Polunin, Marcel Marceau, Charlie Chaplin, Red Skelton, and Emmett Kelly. Japanese traditional forms such as Kabuki and No also contributed to the art of Theatre Shkidy.

Shkidy uses elements of Contemporary and Classical Dance in their physical theatre. Their performance displays a level of physical control and flexibility that exhibits a strong background in movement and dance. Theatre Shkidy performances are active, vibrant, and fresh, beautifully combining startlingly new approaches with the best methods from a wide variety of seemingly immissible sources.
