Having captivated audiences and critics around the world, Donka comes to London for the first time with its dazzling aerial acrobatics, multi-media illusion and circus magic.
Created by the award-winning Daniele Finzi Pasca, who wrote and directed Cirque du Soleil's acclaimed Corteo as well the Broadway hit Rain, Donka offers an intoxicating marriage of wit and wonder, surrealism and pure escapism.
Inspired by Anton Chekhov's plays and diaries, and featuring one of the world's most talented troupes of clowns, acrobats and musicians, Donka celebrates the great Russian writer's delight in the serious play and illusion of theatre, taking us into a spellbinding world of breathtaking beauty.
