Art is a Cupboard

Art is a Cupboard

Taking inspiration from the Oberiu, The Mist create and perform absurdist
vignettes, with a blend of live music, spoken word, burlesque, audience
participation and puppetry. Our work is invigorative, experimental and fun.

"OBERIU, sometimes called Russia’s last avant-garde, is one of the most
intriguing--and little known-- movements of the years before World War II.
The absurdist poets at its center... were less interested in coining
neologisms than in destroying the protocols of semantic coherence and
linguistic realism, these poets have produced a series of inventive,
free-wheeling, and often hilarious poetic texts in a variety of forms and
genres." -- Marjorie Perloff
