Design Statement

In this adaptation, “time” was considered as the most important protagonist, who took the audience into five epochs of Ukrainian historical journey through the traditional story.
This design was based on the unique architectural aspect of Les Kurbas theatre in Lvov. The dialogue between the doom and proscenium stage was in resonance with the two countries in the play. The whole theatre space including all the doors, balcony, stairs and stage transformed into performing areas. Meanwhile, the audience encountered different and immersive perspectives of the performance by locating onto stage, auditorium, and balcony as well.
Performers wore like frozen sculptures with distinguished ornaments from each epoch in each act that gently indicated the change of history and time.
Time flies as sand falls.
It keeps circling the circle and history goes on……
This fairy tale illusion not only unfolds Ukrainian past but also brings and questions Ukrainian current situation on stage.
