Ukrainian theatre online: “People”

Lesia Ukrainka Drama Theater is located in the building of the former Catholic House (1909). In 1954, the building was passed to a troupe of the Russian drama theater that was relocated from Odessa to Lviv. Nowadays, the repertoire of the theater includes many interesting innovative and experimental plays.

This story by Czech author Monique Kanyova contemplates humanity. The performance introduces the viewer to a man named Josef, who has completely isolated himself from the outside world. Once successful and influential, he is now neglected and sickly. Joseph’s relatives want to help him change his way of life, but is the black hole he is free falling into too deep for him to rise above?
