Along the way, he is haunted by fantastic visions, and two mysterious women, seemingly determined to frustrate his plans. In the tradition of anti-theater scene of 70s and 80s New York, 'All Roads Lead to the Kurski Station' rejects naturalistic forms of storytelling, and relies instead on the stylistic fusion of European avant-garde theatre, performance art, Dadaist aesthetics, satire, and montage.
“An anti-theater work that aspires to lofty aspirations but ultimately falls flat and seldom delivers...This is postmodern theater.
