Artists of pantomime and clownery Mikhail Kukota and Igor Chekhov are graduates of the Russian State Institute of Performing Arts. They present a completely new vision and new form of William Shakespeare's famous drama plays through ironic consciousness. Sixteenth-century morality, English drama traditions, the author's unrivalled genius and notorious subjects that outlived millions of interpretations and screenings are transformed in the creator's imagination. An unexpected fusion, which would have surprised William Shakespeare, Elizabeth I and all the Elsinore population. The author of the show is the young talented director Ilya Moshchitsky, known for experimental cross-genre productions.
