A phantasmagoria of delights, the music jazzy, racous, but bitterly sweet, UKSUS is an autobiography of Daniil Kharms and the OBERIU in the Soviet Union of the 1930s, a narrative told through their stories and brief lives, as the OBERIU - The Association for Real Art - maintained their love of words and nonsensical art to their deaths in Stalin’s Great Purge, Kharms starving to death in a psychiatric hospital in 1942 after his arrest at the hands of the NKVD.

Directed by Jim Cave / Conducted by Bryan Nies / Designed by Lynne Rutter

Starring Timur Bekbosunov as Pushkin, Laura Bohn as Fefjulka, Nikola Printz as Stalin, the unparalleled Bob Ernst as Michelangelo, and Roham Sheikani as many many things; accompanied by: Beth Custer, Rob Wilkins, Joel Davel, Diana Strong, John Schott, Ela Polak, Lisa Mezzacappa.

Supported in part by the

National Endowment for the Arts.
