Theatre (June – July)

15 June 2018

Myths Never Die
Oresteia (UA, play)
20-24 June at 19.00
Academic Drama Theatre on Podil (Andriivskyi Descent 20b)
The Misanthrope Theatre has combined efforts with the Theatre on Podil to treat us to an extraordinary project revealing the quintessence of acting tools and latest in IT trends and staging capabilities. Rooted in ancient Greek tragedies, the play transforms into an intellectual spectacle that stimulates audiences’ aesthetic engagement and philosophical reflections through physicality and beauty of the human body. Modern technology serves as the hero to create a modern myth about an individual seeking self-identity in today’s society.
Tickets: 200 – 700 UAH

Ukrainian Breakthrough
When Ferns Bloom (UA, opera and ballet)
22-23 June at 19.00
National Opera of Ukraine (Volodymyrska 50)
40 years ago, this performance would have become a global phenomenon to mark the emergence of an innovative genre – folk opera. Its author Yevhen Stankovych, now a celebrated contemporary Ukrainian composer, combined traditional singing and ancient melodies with avant-garde symphonic music. The opera was commissioned by a French concert firm for the Veryovka Ukrainian National Academic Choir scheduled for October 1978. Unfortunately, it was never staged in Kyiv – top officials from Moscow banned the production. Luckily, the Lviv National Opera has renewed it and presents a stunning show with a contemporary approach to Ukraine’s fun-loving pagans to the freedom-fighting Cossacks.
Tickets: 80 – 1 000 UAH

You and Me Equals Us
Second Floor. Us (UA, two one-act ballets)
30 June at 19.00
Kyiv Academic Molodyi Theatre and baza.artpeople (Prorizna 17)
These two contemporary ballets are the joint effort of Molodyi Theatre and baza.artpeople, an independent association of creative individuals who use a variety of styles, techniques and trends in one dance. Set to music by James Blake, Nils Frahm, and Gustavo Santaolalla, Second Floor is all about relationships, connections, and conflicts between people who are both so alike and so different. Us is a romantic tale about two individuals who get lost in the mountains to find each other.
Tickets: 140 – 500 UAH
