Razom is partnering with the PROTOTYPE Festival’s American premiere presentation of Chornobyldorf, amplifying the voices of Ukraine in the US, taking place January 10-21, 2024 at La MaMa Experimental Theatre in New York City. The story centers on survivors in a post-societal world attempt to recreate lost civilization amidst nuclear power plant ruins and abandoned theaters. Descendants of humanity, surviving disasters, engage in archaeological performance-rituals, using universal symbols. Witness the misinterpretation of signs that gradually dissolve into the white noise of nature. The opera was created in 2020 with a series of video-archaeological expeditions through post-industrial Ukrainian landscapes. After February 2022, during the large-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine, all Chornobyldorf landscapes became a “theatre of war,” carrying traces and evidence of occupation and war crimes (Chornobyl exclusion zone, Zaporizhzhia nuclear power station in South Ukraine). Join us for an unforgettable experience and be sure to take the opportunity to support Razom when you attend!
