“Theatre of error” by Alexander Chernyshkov – 2018

The Transcription of Error

by Alexander Chernyshkov

This mutating performance is rewritten every time it is performed. It changes to suit the performers, as well as the local language and cultural environment. The “theatre of error” studies the essence of the present moment.
This is simultaneously a musical theatre-opera, and stand-up comedy, an inverted concert and eccentric improvisation, dramatic theatre and an existential circus.
Seven superheroes from different countries and areas of art create situations that go beyond common logic.
The Transcription of Error creates a situation in which we are so deceptively close to reality that it seems to us this is reality and we have confused it with a musical play, even though we know we are mistaken.
