1917/2017: Tychyna, Zhadan & the Dogs
In 1917 there’s great hope in Kyiv as the Russian Empire fall apart. But constant invasions lead to twelve changes in government in three years, and society crumbles.
Pavlo Tychyna (Ukrainian’s greatest poet of the 20th century) writes twelve prose poems describing the events now performed by Yara actors. Serhiy Zhadan (Ukraine’s greatest 21st century poet) reacts with songs he sings with his rock group the Dogs.
