WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The Russian Revolution and the civil war that followed were disastrous events in the lives of millions. A stage adaptation of Isaac Babel's selected stories. The society was split apart and the gap was getting wider and deeper every day. Some people were able to find a place in the new world, others were recognised as 'needless' and 'undesirable'. Isaac Babel witnessed and beautifully described The 'Knights of Moldavanka', the romantic thugs, all the beggars, small-time businessmen and smugglers that played an essential part in Odessa's Jewish community at the time. Could they fit in or did they become unwanted strangers, aliens in this new world? Explore Babel's magical world with Xameleon Theatre's new production featuring live music and strong ensemble led by Moscow Arts Theatre actor Alexey Shedko.
