Tableau d'Ilia Répine

La Fabuleuse Histoire d’Ivan Tsarévitch

Traditional Russian folk tales based on the work of Leo Tolstoy

“Beware, o wanderer, the road is walking too.” Rainer Maria Rilke

The Petit Palais in Paris, which hosted from the 23rd October 2021 to the 21st January 2022, an exhibition dedicated to the work of the painter Ilya Repine, commissioned Dramaticules to create two programmes of folk tales based on Russian literature from the end of the 19th century and the start of the 20th century, one for a family-based audience and the other for adults and adolescents. In this staged-reading La Fabuleuse Histoire d’Ivan Tsarévitch, Jérémie Le Louët and Théo Pombet bring us two traditional Russian folk tales for young people: The Wolf and the Moujik by Tolstoy and Ivan Tsarevich, and The Enchanted Guslis (anonymous author). This journey into the land of the Tsars and the Moujiks takes us on a flight of the imagination at the heart of Russian folklore.
