Our number one fan! August 19, 2012

At the end of each of our performances, we ask audience members to spread the word about “Nikotine”.  One such audience member, Christiane Klatt, was kind enough to write this amazing review and publish it on the Fringe Web site:

“An emotional ride for our Nikolai Nikotine (a puppet made of a scarf and a foam head) – he has to give a lecture and he gets distracted either by the thought of his miserable existence when he shrinks into his own cloth body and nervously orders his clothes or by visions of greatness and freedom and lightness when he dances or glides through the air – and back down to earth again. The change between these two moods and the change between performing the puppet and presenting a character herself is done excellently by Milena Milanova. Thanks.”
No, thank you, Christiane!  You are now officially our favorite fan in the world.  And also our favorite critic!  Does our number-one-fan know how to write a stellar review, or what?!

Our third great Fringe review!!! August 17, 2012

Three Weeks gave us our third really good Fringe review! Here it is:

“In this quirky adaptation of Chekhov’s ‘On the Harmful Effects of Tobacco’, puppet character Nikolai Nikotine (drawn from Ivan Ivanovich Nyukhin), a smoker, is forced by the unseen presence of his domineering wife to deliver a conference on the harmful effects of smoking. Chekhov’s droll and moving monologue on the desire to stop bending to the will of others and stand as a self-governing individual works well as a puppet show– the themes of control and independence acquire a new dimension when it is the puppet who is mourning his loss of free will. Sequences of Russian folk music and dance are cleverly choreographed, and a singing mouse is cute to say the least – this is a readily accessible show.”

We also had an invitation from the director of the Prague Fringe to participate in the festival! This is a great opportunity and we are very happy for that chance to show our work on that theatre platform!
