DOMOVOI THEATRE COMPANY was founded by Igor Mamlenkov in 2018 during his Master studies in Physical Theatre at Accademia Teatro Dimitri, Switzerland
We are an independent theatre company that are fascinated about fantasy, visual arts, physical and movement based theatre, object theatre, but our main interest is CLOWN in all its existential, philosophic, comic, surrealist and absurd dimensions. The aesthetics could be determined as visual and atmospheric. It is a so-called synthetic theatre that merges different languages and styles into one dreamy narrative. We believe in the arts that unite and bring people together in a wonderful vortex of play and laughter. Therefore, we are very interested in traveling to distant places, playing for all types of audiences, especially in the places of trying and difficult conditions. We promote theatre as an encounter, as a common collective experience.

Gerardo Tetilla and Robert Diaz Diaz assisted in directing of the piece. Elia Moretti composed the original soundtrack. The show is based on the fairytale Domovoi written by Irina Bogashova-Kotova.

Accademia Teatro Dimitri in Master in Physical Theatre
Accademia Teatro Dimitri is a theatre school in the south of Switzerland. In the Master program of Physical Theatre the actor, as a writer, creator, and interpreter, is at the center of artistic creation. The training is structured modularly and is composed of workshops, courses and seminars, allowing each student to develop their own expressive capacity in terms of composition and theatrical creation, to cultivate their own aptitude for theatrical reflection and self-criticism.
