How to become a hero?
To do something outstanding? To create a cancer vaccine? To win an Olympic medal? To neutralize an enemy? To rescue a kitten? To give up your seat on the tram to those in need? To kill another hero?
What type of hero to become?
Main character or secondary one? Real hero or fictional? Personal hero or national symbol? To the very death or posthumously? For an hour? For a day? Until the news feed is updated?How does it feel like to be a hero?
Is it honorable? Is it burdensome? Is it impossible? Is it possible to become, but it is impossible to be?
To become a hero or to remain a human? The dichotomy? The ambivalence?
Where is the place for the hero? It is always vacant.

The hero has no age. The hero has no sex. The hero has many names and wears many faces.
The performance «Heroes of Chaos» is a part of the Ukrainian project «Ukrainian Odyssey», which is based on Homer’s poem «Odyssey». Five performances within the framework of this project will be interpreted and integrated into the modern realities of our country. They will be created and performed in Lviv, Kharkiv, Odesa and Kyiv.
The performance was made with the financial support within the program «Focus on Culture» of Lviv City Council.
