ABOUT THE PROJECT

In a new way will you hear words and thoughts of Marcel Mithois, Antoine de Saint Exupery, Nadezhda Teffi, Andre Roussin and suddenly even for us - The Bible, The Old Testament. Our actors will be dangerously balancing themselves in movements, interludes and dances. You will see “the eternal bride” and “the girl in the window”, you will meet the youth who will disclose the secret of his fear and will see our big puppet heroes. And maybe you will be able to hear and see a worldwide popular singer. Besides, in the end we will see every our spectator in a close-up like in a forgotten movie, as if it were nostalgia… for reality.

Sometimes the moments come, when you want to start a conversation with the people who come to the show. The con versation, which is more intimate, confessionary enabling you to look in, the eyes of the person whom you want to dialogue with, to feel his pulse and breath. The most important in the show is what is behind the words and between the lines. There are 2 actors, 3 actresses, 4 puppets, 1 video director, 1 projector, a lot of light and music. We fight for the real, live theatre and step into the dialogue with the audience about theatre, life and love. SSSR productions company was founded in 2007. Its main focus is on producing and financing art projects. Our creative triumphs have already been well received by the Foreign and Russian critics and the media.

There are only highly professional actors in the cast. Their acting is based on the Stanislavski's system, which has stood the test of time. Foreign masterpieces will be expressed through the richness and beauty of English language.
