Teatr Licedei: The Family (Semianyki)

Note: This review is from 2006

Review by Steve Bennett

Description

Legendary St Petersburg clown company Licedei, which was founded by Slava Polunine, will be performing at The Edinburgh Fringe for the first time in twenty years with a whole new generation of performers.

The Family (Semianyki) paints a picture of a cartoon-like Russian family. Their lives are a ceaseless power struggle between an alcoholic father ever threatening to leave, a pregnant mother ever threatening to deliver, and their gang of hyperactive offspring continually threatening acts of violence on both parents as punishment for their faults.
