imaginary beasts, part of the Emerging Theatre Company program at the Boston Center for the Arts, is putting on a wild new show titled Knock! The Daniil Kharms Project. Translated by Irina Yakubovskaya, directed by Matthew Woods, with dramaturgy by Matthew McMahan, the production is based on the work of the absurdist Russian poet and dramatist Daniil Kharms. Ultimately silenced by the Stalinist regime he lived under, Kharms is loud and present in Boston in the BCA Plaza Black Box Theatre until October 18th.
Here’s my review of the show. I enjoy the creativity, daring, and sheer skill of many of the “beasts”; luckily, they are also prominent in other areas of the Boston fringe theatre scene.
