MUSEUM NIGHT 2
Department of Culture decided that too few people attended the Museum Night last weekend because of the rainy weather. In addition, Moscow parks had to cancel outdoor activities. As a result, officials have decided that the best way out is to repeat the action on 23 May.
Thus, the Pyramid performance will be shown in Muzeon. This will be a noir play-promenade, where the audience will move through the park along with the actors. At VDNKh, at the pedestal of Worker and Collective Farm Girl, Aysedorino Gore duet will show a ballet, the Museum of Archaeology will host a multimedia show Shadows of the Past on the Bridge, and the Na Kashirke Gallery will hold The Night of Absurdity and Paradox, devoted to Daniil Kharms.
