|International Nonverbal Theatre Initiative is proud to present Theatre Shkidy - an international renowned ensemble from Saint-Petersburg, Russia.
Shkidy is rooted in the rich Russian theatre traditions of Stanislavsky, Meierhold, Chekhov, and Dostoevsky. On that worthy base they create a novel theatrical experience that infuses comedy of absurdity with physical theatre; comedie dell'Arte and goofy mime with theatrical impressionism. Theatre Shkidy is truly pioneering a new "Nonverbal Drama" theatre form.
Blending non-verbal comedy and pathos in a show entitled, "Starry Stories" the Russian Shkidy theatre ensemble uses visual beauty, poignancy, and comedic elements to enchant adults and children alike.
Shkidy tours throughout Europe, Asia and, of course, Russia and has won awards at the International Theatrical Festival, the International Carnival Moscow and the International Carnival Norilsk. On their USA tour, the troupe will present "Starry Stories" a cheerful yet philosophical story dedicated to our world's famous actors of the past.
"Starry Stories" by Shkidy combines intellectual content with belly-laugh humor. A lyrical, kindly theme and respect for history's great performers shines through the ensemble's every move.
Every adult and child in the audience will be transported into a fantastic alternate reality of wonder, comedy, and dance presented by Shkidy actors. The spectacular imagery and the beautifully presented Russian sentimentality are gifts this internationally renowned troupe brings to every country.
Non-verbal drama, beautifully exemplified in theatre Shkidy's performance, is a truly universal communication medium that transcends language and cultural barriers to reach the hearts of all participants.
Escape the everyday world and join us in this enjoyable fantasy at Shkidy's theatres “Starry Stories”!
