Dear Alen.

I would like to explore all that I know about this theater
but there is a problem. My English is not that good. For me it=92s ease to talk
then to write. (Just try to follow me). Shortly, this theater is an Moscow puppet
theater named =93Ten=92=94 (The Shadow). It started like a shadow theater by the
family of great people. Maya Krasnopolskaya and Ilia Epelbaum. Maya is an
actress and musician and Ilia is a great artist. About 15 or 17 years ago they
came with idea of =93Lilikan National Academicals Theater=94. What the Name! (Lilikaniya
is an country some were in the world. It=92s made up). I was proud to help them
to build the first sample of this project. 

Lilikanians (the people) are very small that=92s why Theater
Ten=92 build the =93Lilikan theater=94 inside of the Theater Ten=92, in the one room.
It=92s a whole building and audience are sitting around and watching the show through
the windows of this building. Every things inside are ALIVE. The Actors, the Orchestra
and the Audience. The show itself is an opera in =93lilikan language=94 but don=92t worry
you have a =93translation=94 from speakers. J
I cannot tell how match of professional fun it was. This show was always sold
out 6-8 months before and I believe ( hope !!! )they still playing this show
now. http://www.theatre.ru/lilikan/about/

I would recommend Google to find out more in English. Go
there with Moscow Theatre Ten=92 or try their names.  Ilia Epelbaum or Maya Krasnopolskaya.

Sorry for my inconvenient English.
 
Vladimir

Miniaturization is a different sort of impact (and often benefits from projected enlargements for bigger audiences.) I do find doll houses to be interesting, and do own a few odds and ends which could be considered to be "miniatures". Also I own a Polish Szopka which is sort of a miniaturized theater/church.
