Kovnadskaya, “Zhiraf I Nosorog” (“A Giraffe and a Rhino”) by G. Khorst and “Zolushka” (“Cinderella”) by Y. Schwarz (stage version by Y. Kotelnikova); performances for adults: “Poza Emigranta” (“Emigrant’s Pose”) by G. Slutskaya, “Akh, Ety Zhenschiny” (“Ah, Those Women”) by W. Harrison, “Schastlivy Den” (“Happy Day”) by A.N.
