A young team of artists, choreographers, and dancers decided to instill a new form to the A.V. Sukhovo-Kobylins classic comedy: Russian classic is merged here with modern art, dance, and state-of-art technologies.  This is a kind of a dialogue with the legendary Meyerholds performance of 1922: is tells about transformation of a human being into a small screw of the bureaucratic machine.  Transferring the plot into present-day realities, authors of the performance intended to contemplate on the present-day total control   and omnipresence of the authorities.  The entire audience will be engaged in the action: cameras will be turned onto the public, and the screens used as a stage set will be showing footage of the auditorium.
