Sharmanka Kinetic Theatre visit

This month we have the pleasure of visiting Glasgow’s Sharmanka Kinetic Theatre, home to sculptor-mechanic Eduard Bersudsky and theatre director Tatyana Jakovskaya life’s work of hundreds of carved figures and pieces of old scrap, which perform an incredible choreography to haunting music and synchronised light. With his kinetic sculptures, Eduard’s pieces tell the funny and tragic stories of the human spirit as it struggles against the relentless circles of life and death.

Join Eduard and Tatyana’s son and entrusted caretaker and GM of the theatre, Sergey Jakovsky for an informative tour around the space and a look into the unique work of Eduard Bersudsky. Hear Sergey’s stories of growing up in the space, the effects of the pandemic, what it’s like to now lead his family’s business and his plans for the future.
