The first Ukrainian work in the "fantasy" genre, a love story of a simple village guy Lukash and the forest dryad Mavka.
This play embodied the popular perception of the world, the ancient mythological thinking of Ukrainians, the search for oneself in the modern world.
The magical world of ancient stories and tales, otherworldly forest heroes comes into contact with the world of people, and the problem of human relations - in the person of Lukash, his mother, the widow of Kilina, and nature - in the face of Mavka and other inhabitants of the forest. After all, man is used to treating nature as consumer!
Using natural gifts, a person does not notice his harmful actions. Meeting with the fantasy world of the ancient forest and falling in love with Mavka, Lukash violates the usual way of his world and the magical world of the forest.
Mavka is the embodiment of not only the beauty and defenselessness of nature, but also the spiritual beauty of man, cannot be destroyed in everyday petty concerns. She is always reborn.
The performance is in Ukrainian.
