About Performance:
"Faceless" – written by  Nikoloz Sabashvili' researches  the vicious qualities of the modern society through experimental theatrical forms. Existential fear towards the surrounding world, the eternal struggle between good and evil, the general indifference of the society and the unrestrained desire to self-perception for a better future – is the the theme of performance.  An organic part of the director's concept is the original musical and artistic design of the performance, authored by Nikoloz Sabashvili himself. The artistic structure of the puppets goes far beyond the existing stereotyped features of puppet specificity... The faceless puppets without individual features symbolize the everyday monotonous life of a modern society,deprived of the moral basis.
