The plot centers on Tsar Peter, who entered the popular culture. The fairy-tale tinge to the historical facts is given by a legend in which the Tsar is not only a great sovereign, but also a witty, resourceful hero who even manages to get the moon from the sky. The roles in the performance were played by the artists of the Voronezh Academic Street (VAU) Theater - a team of talented actors, stilt walkers, acrobats, musicians, improvisers, who explore new forms and technologies to create bright and spectacular performances in their hometown and across Russia.

 "Our performance is a historical and artistic study by director Anna Shishkina, artistic director of the oldest street theater in Russia, "Mr. Pejo's Wandering Dolls." In the production we use stilts, acrobatics, author's masks, narrative in the style of a rayok (lit. Russian fair peep-show), interactive with the audience and puppet theater," said Eleonora River, director of the VAU theater.

Eleonora River said that the creation of VAU Theater was initiated by the International Platonov Arts Festival in 2022.

"We were asked to play five to ten productions in a year, but in our first season we managed to visit ten cities and perform the production 21 times. Now we are opening our third season and we already have five plays in our repertoire," Eleanora River emphasized.

She also admitted that it was very exciting for VAU theater artists to perform in front of the guests of such a large-scale venue as the RUSSIA EXPO.

"There is excitement before every performance, because every venue has its own peculiarities. Each performance depends on a thousand factors - from the weather to the props. Each time we adapt to a new venue," added Eleanora River.

The International RUSSIA EXPO is the most important achievements of the country gathered in one place. Throughout the Exposition, cultural events, a rich business and educational program await guests. The expositions of 89 Russian regions, leading federal agencies, corporations and public organizations are presented to the visitors. More than 11 million people have already visited the Exposition.
