The meyerhold center shows an unusual premiere

In the production of "The Lion with a gray beard" will play an antique circus troupe

One of the most interesting theaters of Moscow - the Meyerhold Center invites to the premiere. The current theatrical season CIM began the play "360 degrees". Then on the stage the leading circus artists of Moscow were gathered. And now CIM continues the line of the "new" circus and presents the play "A Lion with a gray beard".

This unusual production is at the junction of the circus and interactive theater. The new performance is based on the fairy tale-parable of the great Italian director Tonino Guerra.

Performers of the play "The Lion with a gray beard" - troupe of the ANTIQUARIAN CIRCUS - circus performers, dancers, musicians, singers, artists. Stylistics of the old classical circus - as if from the movies of Fellini - goes well with the plot of the tale: the famous lion Amadeo from the traveling company of Signor Peretti, traveling around the country, reflects on the freedom and meaning of life. By the end of the performance, his audience will turn into fairy tale participants, participate in the master class and talk with Amadeo.

Director Elena Poldi is confident that this is a performance that one should not forget: "The child lives in the categories of the future and our task is to open to him a past that he does not yet have, but his parents and his family, his country and peace, finally. We want to talk about that circus, which is no longer ... And most importantly, that your children after the performance asked you to open your album and tell them the story of your family. "
