14 poems od Nikolaj Olejnikow - outstanding artist form OBERIU group, famous editor of legendary magazines: Hedgehog and Siskin, inspired composer Walery Woronow  to create a unique vocal and musical cycle. These 14 little tragedies create a very specific musical performance, placed on the edge of epic drama and childhood rhymes and countings. It is a performance about insects living in the world of people, and about people who are living among insects. About enchantment and fear of the scientific knowledge. It is a performance about vanity, beauty and... universe.
