After several years of absence, Derevo, the cult legendary theatre company reappears at the festival. A new production presented by this Russian-German company, whose unforgettable “Red Zone” was a highlight of the first edition of our festival, was a success in Edinburgh. Islands in the Stream is a story about the sea, but the sea is merely an all-embracing metaphor there. The performance consists of a number of episodes with various degrees of emotional contents, ranging from threatening and obscure to lyrical and light.
