Over the years, the diverse repertoire of the theater has included shows based on both Georgian and world classical works, such as Euripedes’ “Electra”, Hemingway’s “The Old Man and the Sea”, Rustaveli’s “The Knight in the Panther Skin”, Vazha-Pshavela’s “Host and Guest”, William Shakespeare’s “Titus Andronicus”, and more.
The Pantomime Theatre was founded in 1965 as the first professional theater of its type in the former Soviet Union. The founder of the Georgian pantomime school, Amiran Shalikashvili (1939-2018) was an actor and director.
“I have never yet met such a national, professionally perfect, and talented collective. Despite the short time since the founding of the theater, the troupe has already managed to find its signature style”. That is how the worldwide legend, Marcel Marceau, evaluated the style of Georgian pantomime in the early 1970s.
