The tragic life story of the great Georgian artist Niko Pirosmani, who passed away in a basement, is brought to life in this one-act puppet show. Information about Niko Pirosmani was collected after his death. This means that in myth-loving Tbilisi, no one can say “I know” about Niko Pirosmani anymore. That is why when Georgians talk about Niko Pirosmani, we begin with “According to the legend”. According to legend, Pirosmani painted a lot, but people more often bought advertising banners from him. Similar to Pirosmani’s paintings, the colour of the play was monochromic and dull. Just like his characters, the placement of the puppets in the play was mostly frontal. Their faces don’t show a definite mood either and they leave enough space to think and fantasize.
