Teatrul Masca

Teatrul Masca pays tribute to the Gogol story previously reinterpreted in mime by Marceau.

Akakii Akakiev, a civil servant who is the butt of his colleague’s jokes, buys a new coat. It gets stolen. Nobody steps in to help him. 
A dreamer adrift in a world moving too fast for him to keep up, he instead gets swept up in the whirlwind of his desires, erotic fantasies and anxieties.
While nodding to the work of Marceau, who first adapted this Gogol story, Teatrul Masca bring their own spin to the tale with their gigantic masks. A unique vision of expressionist pantomime.
