Andrey Sizintsev prepares a CD with "SUICIDE" soundtrack. We want to bring some copies with us to 'OEROL'.
build, we saw and dub, we paint and sew and we paint again... We have a
guest here - Vadim Vasil'ev, an artist. If you already saw "SUICIDE",
you can go and look it once again: at least 150 square meters covered with
painted standarts!!! It would be nice to be in time to sew the costumes
with new designs, if there is a time... Though, as very honourable people
have said, we have a lot of time! 12 days remain till our departure to Montpelier
and to the 'OEROL' (see
And more... In a huge tree which grows in our yard lives the nightingale whose younglings are out now. As yet they sing not so harmoniously but very loud...
already played 'THE RIDER' here, at home, in DEREVO-LABORATORIUM. The huge
interest of the Dresden public was proved by a complete SOLD OUT already
through reservations: No tickets left at the door, but still there were
queues for a small chance to sneak in by the "Waiting List" (a
few people were lucky...). Our telephone lines nearly broke down, some small
"scandals" happened at the box office... Pleasantly the visits
to our Website rose at least twice in these days. The only upset was that
we did not find the horse...
Now the rehearsals of 'REFLECTION' have started, which will be shown at the end of this week (11. - 13. May, 21:00). Again we are completely booked out, but here is an advice for people who are in Dresden. If you have not reserved your tickets you can try to come at 20:00 for the box office opening and enter the "WARTELISTE". There is a small hope that someone will not pick reserved tickets up. If you are among the first ten FORTUNE MAY SMILE UPON YOU...

Spring has come to Europe and particulary to DEREVO-LABORATORIUM. All have gathered from a short vacation: Tanya from Italy, Oleg from Poland, Lena from Korea, Chester Mueller and Karla have returned from France, where regular International theatrical meetings (IETM) were held. Now we rehearse and play in LABORATORIUM the performances "Rider" and "Reflection". For "Rider" natural horse was invited (for a smell and real sensations).
We are definitely must tell you about our impressions from the recent visiting of South Korea. If all the people in the world would were the Buddhists, then there could be the Peace on Earth. For the second time we brought here "ONCE... " - performance about Love, and once again spectators swung us on the waves of a benevolence.
Then was a has gainedderful meeting: Zen monks came to the show (their names are Mu Shim Sunim, Chi Lin Sunim, Myong Gong Sunim, Kwan Haeng Sunim, Bo Haeng Sunim, Kwan Hyon Sunim and Kwan Il Sunim). During the conversation after performance Zen-master Mu Shim Sunim has said, that our job is much in common with their activity. His word has become the most inspiring compliment for us. After that we have conducted some time at Seoul International Zen Center, in a monastery Hwa Gye Sa.

We had a press-conference at "Premier" Casino on Nevsky. Nice that there were no questions like 'why did you called your group DEREVO (tree)?', 'why did you left Russia?' and 'how do you feel yourself abroad?' We answered the questions about books, theater and particularly lacking of a real theatrical education in Russia and St.Petersburg.
