Sharmanka is a theatre of kinetic sculptures by Eduard Bersudsky, founded in St Petersburg, Russia in 1989. Hundreds of carved figures and pieces of old scrap perform an incredible choreography to haunting music and synchronized light, telling the funny and tragic stories of the human spirit as it struggles against the relentless cycles of life and death. Based in Glasgow since 1996, Sharmanka has gained a considerable reputation as one of the city's hidden treasures.
