Theatershow Over the Rainbow

One year ago I designed my theateract ‘Eaters’. Then I decided to participate in ‘Circus got Talent’. It was a great experience. But I never expected this act to blossom like it does. What started as a 6 minute act became a standalone show of 15 minutes. And those 15 minutes grew into the big theatershow “Over the Rainbow” with a duration of 90 minutes.

Over the Rainbow tells a story of a young person trying to be what she wants to be. It’s a show about self-development, personal growth and equality. It combines live music and singing. It has circustechniques, unicycling and acting.

I play the main part in “Over the rainbow”. Professional performer Ksenia Marasanova (mom) supports me as actress, musician and singer. We sing in several languages, ie English, Jiddisch, Ukrainian, Japanese and Dutch.

It is interesting to experience how something grows. “Eaters” started from a simple idea: I like unicycles, cooking and singing, let’s design something around that. I selected a (Yiddish) song and designed a flow around it. And rehearsed my ass off for “Circus got Talent”. And then festivals and theaters booked “Eaters”. During additional rehearsals the show grew with an extra song and much more unicycling (of course haha).

And then I got the invitation to develop a longer show around Eaters. Show be apx 30-40 minutes or longer. And so it happened. We added songs and story. And unicycle-tricks. And acting. And more unicycling. And now we are finetuning for two versions:

  • 40 minute show for festivals and schools.
  • 90 minute show for in theater and schools.
