Nikolai Gogol (1809 – 1852) is an author, with whom sorrow and tragedy are overcome through sparkling laughter. The paradoxes of life, reflected in his whimsical fantasy, are both comic and mystical. Human and otherworldly, people and ghosts intermingle in Gogol’s chorus – the overcoats are vibrant, the portraits alive, and noses stroll along the boulevards. "The essence of humanity is derived irrationally from the chaos of the imaginary realities that objectify Gogol’s world". (V. Nabokov)

The performance is a new and original take on Gogol’s prose. It expands the on-stage perception of the author, as the artists reveal his absurdist humour in a captivating way with its improvisational power.

The production "Walking With Gogol" is part of the "Theater+" Program.
