About the Show Less...

Inspired by Cervantes' Don Quixote, this funny and inventive mime-show explores otherness and what is means to feel you are somehow just a bit different from the rest. Read More >

Donky Khot is a sad-looking knight, a strange figure – 2 metres tall in a hat and glasses and eccentric. He’s a poet, an unstable blunderer and a giant in a world of dwarves. But however often he is killed or literally flushed down a toilet he always bounces back. Ages 8+

Dmitry Krymov is celebrated throughout Russia as creator of a totally unique form of theatre with his artists applauded as the new wave of Russian performance art. In his work, the lines of reality become blurred as drawn images appear to come to life in a stunning visual tableau. Not a Fairy Tale and Donky Khot are performed by Krymov’s ensemble who tell their stories using their skills as visual and performance artists. The results are hilarious and visually stunning.
