October Palace (Nebesnoi Sotni 1)
Project Mr. Good continues its Citizen Poet initiative launched back in 2011 and first broadcast on TV Dozhd (Rain), a Russian independent cable channel. The project criticises contemporary Russian society and fearlessly and ruthlessly mocks Kremlin authorities in witty rhyme inspired by 19th century classics and recited by legendary film and stage actor Mikhail Yefremov. Both projects were successfully presented in many cities of Europe, the Middle East, and the US. Easy-Peasy, a new programme, is a kind of a press conference focusing on today’s challenges and issues.
