“A Warsaw Melody"


 

What is happiness?

 

Happiness is a complicated thing - сonsists of joy and sorrow, love and parting, hopes and disappointments - just like our lives. 

Life where things do not always work as we expect. Life in which we never know what is better. Life where love does not always win.

 

“A Warsaw Melody" is an "urban legend" about two very different people who met by chance and broke up due to painful circumstances beyond their control.

Each of them lived his own life and had his own love story until they met again...

FREE FALL

A combination of motion and dramatic theater. 

 

Life is a freefall, it is unclear where you're flying to and where you will land. 

But as the ground draws near, and the end becomes clear to you, there is a sudden spark of desire to live within you. And you ask: Can I do it again, please?

"Lear without Lear, introduced by a bastard. It works splendidly. Lear. Puppets and People, directed by Michael Teplitsky, is theatre as it can be and should be: imaginative, entertaining, and unafraid to take risks… It’s provocative, funny, cynical, violent, moving, and harrowingly relevant"

Ayelet  Dekel  "Midnight East"

A foreign woman.

 A woman of Russian descent falls in love with a South American man, and shakes up the immigrant neighborhood in New York where she lives. 

Pure Russian laughter that stems from the depth of despair. Self-humor that thrives out of the misery, imposed on the individual by state and society.

 

Marusia Tatarovich comes from a family of Communist Party activists. At some point she decided to emigrate to the USA. In order to obtain permission to leave the Soviet Union, she married a fictitious marriage to a Jew Zaire Tzahanovitzer. 

 

Very soon she found herself in a Russian neighborhood in New York. 

 

By this point she is a beautiful and lonely woman, a single mother. She went through a typical immigrant journey - lack of work and money, despair, men's onslaught. But eventually life works out, and she finally marries a local man...


 

(Иностранка; literally - "woman from abroad").

 

A play by Michael Teplitzky based on a book by Sergei Dovlatov (a modern Russian-Jewish-American writer)

Ha-fa-na-na

Sometimes it's easier for us to cover up with a joke, sometimes we prefer to pay attention to people that are next to us, sometimes we choose to run away from ourselves instead of solving the problem. Sometimes we decide to take a taxi instead of taking a responsibility. Sometimes we want just to run away. 

 

This is life. Our life, ordinary and standard, the simplest and most complex issue we need to deal with.

 

The show deals with ongoing insults, fate, and the fact that we all carry our burden of worries not knowing how to get rid of it on time. 

A philosophical parable about time, about how we grow up and interpret the actions of our youth. 

 

Many of us remember African Simon who appeared on stage in the late 70s. The singer's main hit was the song "Ha-fa-na-na", whose lyrics seem to be just a strange set of words. But in fact, Simon sings in Tongue language, telling us that both white and black are all equal before God. 

So, have fun, relax, take it easy, do “ha-fa-na-na”!

THE SNOW TALE

 “When the sun arrives I’ll melt away”… “So I’ll head to the sun and will ask him not to come”

“The Snow Tale” is a beautiful and unique show for the whole family that conveys the cozy homely winter feel. The fact that the venue can seat up only 34 persons invests a lot in this atmosphere.

The little snowman starts his journey to stop the sun from coming in an effort to have the winter continue. On his way he meets new friends living in the forest and learns a lot of new about the world, the nature and particularly about himself.

The show is based on a romantic folk story “The sun and the snow people”.
