A touring company of storytellers has packed their bags and instruments on their donkey and journeyed all the way from Russia determent to present a piece by one of their national writers.
MishMash’ second play: ”The Nose”, (”Næsen” / “La Nariz”) is based on the famous short story of the Russian writer Nicolai Vasilievich Gogol. “The Nose” is a crazy and unforgettable story about the proud general Kovalev and his nose that one day decides to leave him and live a life of its own.
Using music, acrobatics and character changes quick as a flash the actors show everything from furniture to people and animals on the busy streets of Saint Petersburg.
Once again, no props or decors are needed. MishMash does it all!
