Based on texts by Paul Valery, Georg Christoph Lichtenberg, and Ludwig Wittgenstein this legendary work by Heiner Goebbels offers a feast for the eyes and ears. Music theatre pyrotechnics offer a new mode of embodying philosophical discourse in a staging that that is both sensuous and spontaneous. Here one of Europe’s most adventurous theatre-makers offers an opportunity to experience the magic that scientist Max Black is capable of realising in his onstage laboratory where anything and everything is possible.

The Stanislavsky Electrotheatre is located in the heart of Moscow, on Tverskaya Street 23, and was founded almost a century ago in 1915 as the cinema palace — the Ars electrotheatre. After the revolution it became home to Konstantin Stanislavsky’s opera and drama studio, and not long after that, the Stanislavsky Drama Theatre. The symbolic legacy of these three locations, a cinema, an opera studio and a dramatic theatre, has been fully endorsed by the Stanislavsky Electrotheatre as it launches a new era.
