Fantasm. Improvisation
The play that is created at the time of execution of the actors on stage by
proposals from the audience.
Phantasm — an illusory, hallucinatory phenomenon strange thing that has fantastic character.
— Theodor Ziehen, German psychiater

'What a strange dream I had', — Alice thought, and she ran home, not to be late for tea.

Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

Fantasm. Improvisation
This is the reality of multiple, disparate and interconnected. Reality born actors from scraps collective unconscious spectators.
Random Word, Feeling question - that of grain, of which grows phantasm. Neither the director nor script. Only the total breath. One breath on stage and in the auditorium. Laughter, Sadness, Waiting - breath. The gesture, dialogue, plot - exhale. Phantasm.

For the first time the term was introduced by Theodore Tsigenom in 1906. Observed in people with well-developed imagination. It comes from the inability to distinguish early childhood real objects and fictional. Explicitly seen most often in children (eg, the child came up the ghost, and now fears his imagination). However, adults can also pursue all sorts of fantasies. In some cases, fantasies can bring to delusional states.

Our theater group is a permanent acting experiment. We are open for penetration into the inner kitchen - sometimes we hold open rehearsals, which can come spectators. And during the performances we cultivate the action scenes from the micro-hooks, which we also suggest the audience. So we get together spectator-actor dialogue. Come to us to participate in this process.
A modern spectator is ready for transformation
We believe that a modern viewer is ready to transform the sophisticated consumer of theatrical activity in the partner. Together with the audience, we create 'Phantasms' on the stage, and a joint creative act, which remains true as long as there is present the effect of surprise and unpredictability. Each performance is born from the interaction of the actors and the audience, each performance — experiment, so your applause — this is not an expression of gratitude for what he saw, but rather a sign of consent to participate in an event.

When the idea of slipping from our consciousness, it is
does not cease to exist - as well as a machine for hiding an angle, does not dissolve in the air. Just she was out of sight. Later, we can meet again, this machine, and how can we come across previously thought lost.

— Carl Gustav Jung, Analytical Psychology.

What media says
Ask questions, despite its banality, collectively run in sitting in the hall complex thought process that does not stop even after the performance. Of course, in the end you can try to grab flashed views of the author of the relativity of the world, but in one ton of issues that will fall down on you'll have to dig their own. And it is useful, especially for you.
Peter Grey, Theatre Observer
This is a very good performance. There a lot of things. It's great just to Toronto, at a time when people are at their peak of some of its success, it is very helpful to look back and to look at its past, its roots.
Alex Zimberlaitman, Spectator
