An anonymous theatre company

The Kotorogo Theatre
24 Nov 2014 | From Anna of Russia

Here's a magical and whimsical postcard for my umbrella-themed postcard collection. And the stamps were cool too with their beautiful designs and embosed patterns. Anna said that the postcard shows a theatre performance whose name cannot be called. It was intriguing that I searched it up on the internet. On the postcard, a little text of 'Kotorogo Theatre' is written.

The Kotorogo Theatre is a mysterious Russian physical theatre company who keeps their identities secret. They are a secret community of strange nationality with abnormal behavior in life history. They assert that everything is changing, every second – is past, instant is dust. 

Kotorogo Theatre is something like the transformers of place: wherever you come – they are already there, got mixed up - they appear, make a stage scandal again and leave a phone number. Nobody knows for certain where are they from, but silliness can be read in their faces, pale and thin with ingrown items in hands. Since recently the Kotorogo Theatre symbiotic activity widely spread in the ranks of visual arts toilers. 

This somehow reminds me of the movie Step-up: Revolution. They perform exactly the same anonymous manner. They do elaborate, cutting-edge flash mobs, called "The Mob", then leave their mark or name. The Mob then turn their performance art into protest art as the movie progresses.
