Nope. It's all done by with dance-like movements, set to the music of Dmitri Shostakovich. The result is that it's kind of like a silent film, kind of mime-y, and kind of a ballet, although for some reason, everyone involved in the thing refuses to let it be called a ballet. Actually, between the expressionistic backdrops and lighting, weird guys in white coats hobbling around, no dialogue, and the main character being a tall angular guy in white face-paint, it reminded a very hungover SFist of the "Buffy" episode "Hush."
