"Second Hand"(clownstrophobia)

The clowns from boxes

""Comic-Trust's" play has disrupted the peaceful flow of St.-Petersburg's life, and as such has become one of the most important theatrical happenings in recent memory."
Commersant Daily

""Second Hand" evoked cheers and hearty laughter."

"They brought life to everything they touched, resurrecting the myth of the mysterious Russian soul."
Marie Claire

"From the opening minutes the viewer can't help but fall in love with the ridiculous clown trio.

""Second Hand" is absolutely unique: it says so much without uttering a single word."
St.-Petersburg Revew


The premiere of the performance Second Hand took place in January, 1997 (director - Vadim Fisson, designer - Boris Petrushansky).
   This show for three clowns is a comic drama which explorers a world at once terrifying and beautiful, absurd and tender. The story, a series of sketches, is championed by the self-doubting terrorist (Natalia Fisson), the mad academic telepath (Nikolai Kytchev) and the frenetic modern jester (Igor Sladkevich). These three friends weave their way through a senseless, impoverished world with dignity and humor, resulting in an escapade that is both hilarious and poignant. They quarrel, then make up, dance, sing, show tricks, fall in love, train irons, tell their funny and sad stories without any words.
   Its very difficult to define the genre of the performance: its sort of parody where actors laugh at our life.

All the spectators laugh and forget about their age, nationality and crisis.

"Fisson's newest work offers the Petersburg public a taste of an entirely new style of theater."
"Delovoi Peterburg"
