Garage Museum of Contemporary Art and Alisher Usmanov’s Art, Science and Sport Charity Foundation present A Christmas Story, a unique performance by Invisible Shows theater project. The show is staged in a completely new format that has not been seen before anywhere in the world.
An invisible show is a performance without the visual element, where the story is told through sound, smells and tactile experiences—a living audiobook, where listeners find themselves inside the narrative.
Based on the novella A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, A Christmas Story is a story about love and kindness, greed and indifference—and getting a fresh start before Christmas. Mischievous rhythms, voices coming from the dark, enchanting odors and gusts of wind will take the listeners on a journey to the past in order to change the present.
The score by acclaimed composer Vadim Kaverin, English carols and Irish folk songs, sound effects and kinetic elements create a totally immersive environment.The show was developed with the support of Art, Science and Sport Charity Foundation.
‘This is not the first time we have worked with Invisible Shows. For the past two years, our Foundation has been supporting their tours as part of our program for helping blind or partially sighted children. Their shows Wolke and Scarecrow have travelled to thirty-four Russian cities,’ says Maria Melnichenko, the Head of Special Projects at Art, Science and Sport Charity Foundation.
