About us

Saint-Petersburg Hands Plastic Theatre was created in 2007, all actors graduated from the State Theatrical Academy's puppetry faculty. The main point around which the company was formed was a special ability, even a talent for seeing something unique in ordinary things. Many different arm-hand development exercises helped make it possible for the actors to speak about everything using only their hands. Eventually, it became a genre.


"Hand Made" made performances in European countries such as Finland, Netherlands, Italy, France, Spain, Poland and Bulgaria. "Hand Made" represented Russia at Cannes Russian Seasons in 2010.
