Our wonderful actors Oleg Sidorchik and Irina Kara in rehearsal for Diaries of Madmen. Book your Early bird tickets via link in bio.
One of the key elements of production of Diaries of Madmen are projected moving images. Alongside our actors Oleg Sidorchik and Irina Kara there will be dozens of animated characters from Nikolai's Gogol's farcical novel. Here is the very beginning of the work our designer Irina Gluzman and director Konstantin Kamenski started a few months ago.
We are happy to announce our new project. Diaries of Madmen is based on Nikolai Gogol's novel "Diary of a Madman" and Russian musician's Piotr Ilyitch Tchaikovsky's personal diaries. Famous farcical short story by one of the greatest Russian writers Nikolai Gogol, is a funny and brutal exploration of a civil servant's Poprishchin struggle to keep a grip on reality. Madness might mean a failure to find your proper place in the world, or the compulsion to occupy a place to which you’re not entitled. Diary of a Madman exposes one man’s longing to find such a place for himself, a place where he is visible, where he matters, and above all, belongs. Another civil servant Pyotr Tchaikovsky, who later became one of the greatest Russian composers, also had a complicated relationship between his inner world and reality. His personal diaries reveal his daunting self-doubt, suicidal thoughts and loneliness. Director Konstantin Kamenski combined the stories of two civil servants, and together with the designer Irina Gluzman, explored the relationship between genius and madness, hopelessness and the desire to escape into the imaginary world. Performed in Russian with English surtitles. Ticket link in bio

Our amazing Sharikov @sergey.kotyuh was a true discovery for London's audience and Bulgakov's admirers last year. His Sharikov is completely different from famous Soviet movie's portrayal of the incarnation of The New Soviet Man. Actors say it is rather difficult to perform characters after a well known adaptation. Sergey was brilliant in making his character different, fresh, truthful and authentic. This is Sharikov you haven't seen before. Come to Canada Water Theatre to see A Dog's Heart with Sergey in title role. Link for tickets in bio

Beautiful review for our production of The Little Prince by CEEL. Well done team! To read the full review, visit our page on Facebook: Xameleon Theatre, make sure you subscribe as well if you haven't already😁
For the director of A Dog's Heart, Konstantin Kamenski, using live-cameras and video on stage was never just about creating the pretty image. Dividing the worlds of Professor and his creation - Sharikov, by the use of multimedia highlights alienation that is so present between those two people. A Dog's Heart is first and foremost a play about different social classes and the struggle that resulted in the Russian Revolution is somehow so relevant and present in today's society. Come and see our version of this rarely performed novel on 22-24th November. Ticket link in bio
