Description: The magic of the circus pays homage to Russian playwright and physician Anton Chekhov in a show of visions, dancers, acrobats and jugglers. Donka is the latest creation of Daniele Finzi Pasca—already confirmed as a leading figure on the international theatre scene and author of unforgettable shows for Cirque Eloize and Cirque du Soleil. In a stream-of-consciousness love-letter to Chekhov you'll see a dream-like world of performers portraying the parade of students,doctors and dreamers that populate Chekhov's literary landscape. Donka is a theatrical work accompanied by the exotic sounds of old Russia.
