"First Theatrical Aid" is a fast and powerful theatrical "injection". This is a legendary project of directors, the founders of the theatre "Shadow" Ilya Epelbaum and Maya Krasnopolskaya, restored specifically for the Platonov Arts Festival.
Inside the theatremobile there is a pompous theatrical box, in front of the audience there is a half-meter stage, on which there are opera performances in the Lilikan manner for adults and children. Each of them lasts no more than 10 minutes (in the puppet country of Lilikania, the audience do not tolerate long performances).
The Moscow Shadow Theatre was founded by Ilya Epelbaum and Maya Krasnopolskaya in 1988. The team has repeatedly become the winner of the "Golden Mask" award and other Russian and international festivals, including forums in Spain, France, Germany, Brazil, the USA and other countries. In 2022, the "Shadow Theatre" was merged with the Moscow Children's Shadow Theatre.
