You never know what the war is until it happens to you. 5 o'clock in the morning, and, boom - you are there. And whatever you will try to say about it, is different from what your body really feels...
We invite you to a preview of our performance about the somatic response to the war in Ukraine.
What do I feel when I am in a place being bombarded? How do I understand my life's worth, in the midst of evacuation? How do I decide to stay or to go? What is it to be alive so near to death? Moving through these questions we will look closer at the reality of the effects of war on our body and psyche.
The work is presented by representatives of physical theatre from Ukraine - Sandro and Maria, residing in the Arts Printing House.

Date, time: 13 May, 18:00

Adress: Menų spaustuvė/Arts Printing House, Šiltadaržio g. 6

Singer: Eliza Izmalkova – is a 21-year-old singer from Ukraine. She had to flee her home after Russia annexed Crimea and started the war in Eastern Ukraine in 2014. She has been living and studying in Lithuania since 2015.

Description: Eliza will sing several songs and after will ask all people present to join her in singing the song «Ой, у лузі червона калина».

Idea: Ukrainians are a singing nation, famous for centuries for their national songs, which are written in moments of joy and sorrow. Songs are now a source of inspiration in this difficult struggle against the greatest threat of the 21st century. By sharing this moment, we will share our strength and become even more united. We hope that the song could lift the spirits of the Ukrainian people in our fight against great evil and injustice and will raise more awareness around the globe – so other countries could take over the initiative.

Mother of Apostles is a Ukrainian war drama from 2020 directed by Zaza Buadze. Written by Ratha Makeyenkova and Zaza Buadze; produced by Dmytro Ovechkin (will be present at the screening).

The film Mother of Apostles is unique in its script form and very strong emotionally. It is based on real events that took place in eastern Ukraine in 2014, where the fighting is still going on. The tragedy of war is shown through the story of one person - MATTER. The viewer is presented with a full picture of the tragedy of war. What used to be a prosperous country has become not only a ruin of cities and villages, but much worse - a ruin of body and soul. And it's all pierced by a searing pain and a piteous chant of immense love from a mother who runs to save her son in this hell of war.

Date, time: 13 May, 18:30

Location: VDU Academy of Education, T. Ševčenkos g. 31
