Fairytale in rap-style

Mikhail Kuzmin
Premiere: May 5, 2007 |Duration: 1 hour | No intermission | 6+

About

Mihail Kuzmin (1872-1936), a prominent member of the Silver Age literary movement in Russia, wrote a play based on Charles Perrault’s fairy tale Puss in Boots. Kuzmin remained faithful to Perrault’s original storyline, however, he added an air of lightness and humourous irony, injecting the play with a tone typical of commedia dell’arte.

Puss in Boots is the first children production staged at the Roman Viktyuk Theatre. The story of Puss is placed in a modern world where the famous cat is a fan of rap music and roller blades. That said, in typical Roman Viktyuk style, the director remains demanding of his audience: the story is not simplified or especially customised for children. In similar vein, the actors put on a faithful Vityuk-style physical performance, acrobatic-like and admirable as ever.
