Ukrainian theatre online: “The Dog’s House”
Dakh Theatre (Kyiv) opened on 12th of November, 1994. It was founded by businessman, producer, director and actor Vladislav Troitskyi. The centre has gradually grown into a hub for creative experimental activity, searching for dynamic synthesis of different methods of acting and art direction. One of the most important tasks of the center is to analyze spiritual sources of creativity and acting while at the same time being natural and convincing on a stage.
“The mystical world of Troy Nibi is set against the bleakness of reality, reinforced by war. It is an uncompromising attempt to explore the Ukrainian psyche” (Financial Times). An avant-garde, provocative and profound show, which rethinks the contemporary approach to Ukraine. The heroes – the heart of Ukrainian society – are in hospital. What is a prison? And how long will they be in captivity? The themes of slavery, human suffering, the search for truth and freedom are relevant in this “painful” exhibition.
