KALINKA is a theater performance in which musical eclecticism and aerial acrobatics (trapeze, tissus) joins with games of extreme originality, gags, improvisation, comic spontaneity and carefully planned effects to create a work of extreme freshness and effect. Maskerpa, improbable presenter/theatrical manager and no less than vaudevillian con man/scoundrel, presents the self-styled Russian artist Maila Zirovna, who disinterestedly plays along with the scam… until, impetuously, their tedious fraud erupts bringing to life a rich gallery of characters, musical instruments, melodies, and eccentric gags.
KALINKA é uno spettacolo comico e coinvolgente, in cui il pubblico, senza distinzioni tra grandi e piccini, viene chiamato ad una partecipazione diretta e divertita.
