The Lost Wheels of Time, a 45-minute show in the park about a clock and friendship created by Adam Read (Cirque du Soleil) from Australia and Fyodor Makarov (Slava's Snow Show).
"The Lost Wheels of Time" is not just a visual open-air theater show, but an extraordinary experience for young and old.  A fascinating show by "Serious Clowns" provides a lot of fun and entertainment with a rare blend of humor and surrealism, inspired by Lewis Carrol's Alice in Wonderland and Eugene Schwartz's The Tale About Lost Time. The creators used their worldwide experience of working in drama, clowning, dance, performance art, circus, and children's theater have created a fusion which combines all these genres and tells a touching human story.
