It’s our first stage work since the beginning of large-scale invasion. What can we say about this work? Lets say its genre is uncertain – as well as our living today. There are many voices in it overwhelmed with rage, pain and hope. There is a lot of music in it full of struggle and freedom. We say the words written by Ukrainian poets and poetesses this spring. We share our fears and dreams. We laugh at a joke though it’s not quite a joke, but it’s still funny. To be honest we made this work for ourselves to recover by breathing at a steady pace. We hope you will do the same.
