Following the success of Sharmanka’s new Gothic Circus exhibition at last year’s Edinburgh Festival, and more recently as part of MimeFest in London, the pieces move to the Oxfordshire Museum in Woodstock.
SHARMANKA (Russian for hurdy-gurdy) was founded by sculptor-mechanic Eduard Bersudsky and theatre director Tatyana Jakovskaya in St.Petersburg (Russia) in 1989. Audiences in many countries have been fascinated by its magic, and based in Glasgow since 1996 it has gained a reputation as one of the city’s hidden treasures.
‘Bizarre, hilarious, ghoulish… unmissible’. – The Sunday Times.
The exhibition opens on February 11th and continues until March 29th.
