Sharmanka Kinetic Theatre

Get Directions

  • Address: 103 Trongate, Glasgow G1 5HD, United Kingdom


Founded in St. Petersburg, Russia in 1989, the Sharmanka Kinetic Theatre was brought to the Trongate 103 in 1996 by Eduard Bersudsky. The theatre brings inanimate objects to life, as sculptured pieces of scrap and tiny carved figures perform humorous and tragic stories of the human spirit, set to haunting music.

Described by The Sunday Times as "Bizarre, hilarious, ghoulish... unmissable", this unusual and not-to-be-missed visitor experience was awarded a TripAdvisor 2017 Certificate of Excellence.
