About this show

A new play inspired by writings of the Russian avant-garde absurdist Daniil Kharms, Knock: A Journey to a Strange Country takes a closer look at the experience of migration and the consequences of choices, while attempting to penetrate the paradoxical world of human nature, both tragic and comical. Knock blends approaches and perceptions in order to study what truly compels us to act or to fear, to follow or to rebel, to open up or to hide within our true selves. Exploring the ideas of fear and existence propels the company members to process their personal journeys through the lens of Kharms' writings, allowing us to discover the truth about "what is." Imagine a person coming out of his house, carrying a sack. He cannot be defined by words or labels. Where will the journey take him? Let's find out together.
