Donka L

Step into a spellbinding and breathtaking world inspired by Anton Chekhov's plays and diaries, told with sublimely lyrical wit from one of the world’s most talented troupes of clowns, acrobats and musicians.

Commissioned for the opening of the 2010 Chekhov International Theatre Festival, this dazzling feat of aerial acrobatics, multi-media illusion and circus magic, arrives in Dublin after captivating audiences around the world with its intoxicating marriage of surrealism and pure escapism.

Directed by award-winning Daniele Finzi Pasca (director of Cirque Du Soleil’s Corteo and the Broadway hit Rain), let this sumptuous theatrical extravaganza lift your spirits and draw you into the enigmatic mind of Russia’s most famous writer.
