Through The Walls Project
This work is still in making and is a collaboration with Zelyonka-Fest, the biggest international festival of contemporary dance in Ukraine. The work is conceived as a site-specific event involving dance and visual art on the territory of Kyiv Fortress, a 19th century historical site. We want to pay homage to Ukrainian poets and writers who were political prisoners of the Soviet regime and continued working in imprisonment. Using the territory of the historical site has a symbolic meaning: the fortress was used as a political prison during the times of the Russian empire. Our intention is to create an uplifting work of visual theatre celebrating the power of human spirit and unstoppable nature of art.
