A documentary puppet production by a Russian scenographer working in Prague. Daria Gosteva tells the story of a strange house under the spruce trees outside Moscow. Out of memory emerges a mysterious house with a cold kitchen made of window frames and steep red stairs and its bizarre inhabitants and neighbours: a singing bourgeois, an Afghan war veteran, the Dong and Jumbli siblings and other strange inhabitants of this near and yet so distant world. Originally created as a home theatre project, we are also presenting this production at Alfred ve dvoře for a limited audience.
