Show Information

Using a five-piece band on stage, a European ensemble and an array of theatrical styles, New International Encounter brings you the story of Maria Michaliovna, at one moment an old lady sitting in her flat, in the next, a young girl dancing in the park.

The Herald Angel and Total Theatre Award-winning production Past Half Remembered is a madcap journey through the epic sweep of twentieth century Russian history. The Reds and the Whites do battle, the Germans invade, tea is served from a samovar and there is a very big wedding while actors change roles and get confused about which side they are on!

Don’t miss your chance to take this comic, tragic and absurd journey through the Soviet Century.

Ages 12+

“This magical slice of storytelling theatre uses every trick in the book and still leaves you wondering what they'll come up with next."
The Stage

“A beautiful and touching piece about a young woman who falls in love just before the first world war. Fragile, slightly mad and tinged with sadness.”
The Guardian

"The mixture of light and dark captures the essence of the stories they tell, which are of humanity winning against long odds, exploring the intimate while hinting at the epic. Clever, inventive, transformative.”
