|Posters for the Clown Troupe!|
What an adventure (which my mom summarized on the other family blog...click here and here if you want to read about that experience).
But again, the most fabulous Alex and Evgeni suggested that we might want to experience a broad range of cultural events, so they helped us get tickets for an evening with clowns.
And not just ANY clowns! This was an evening of the most loved sketches by Licedie (which is how I think the Russian term for it is written?)... this is the comedy group which includes Slava Polunin et al, famous for such events as Slava's Snow Show. For those of you who have seen Cirque de Soleil's "Allegria" show, you will recognize him as the clown who did the sketch where he is dancing with a coat, and then walking through a manufactured snow storm.

And then, off to the show! It was all in a combination of Russian and 'clown language', which is to say 'pantomime and bodily humour'.
