LIFE IS ALL AROUND is the first comedy directed by Yegor Druzhinin. This is a movement production about a village life.
21 actors on stage will tell 21 stories using just the language of their bodies. Those are stories of meetings and partings; of false expectations, love and hopes. The show is full of optimism, good mood, lyricism and trust in human race, full of speechless love.

The acting company includes actors seen in the musicals Love and Espionage, Monte Cristo, Mamma Mia!, The Ordinary Miracle, as well as TV series There Goes the Youth, The Uni, Interns.
