Why is it worth going to the East-West performance?

1. This is an urgent statement about our life.
2. An unusual view of adolescents on contemporary problems in society.
3. Talented directorial embodiment.

Adults are accustomed to perceiving everything through the acquired patterns, so sometimes it is so important to hear the unbiased and uncomplicated stereotypes of children and adolescents.

East-West is a performance based on five plays written as part of the Class Act: East-West project. These works were written by teenagers from different parts of Ukraine. They all write about the world that surrounds them. Three of the five works are based on personal experience. These are plays about fears, expectations and childhood dreams. About harsh adult reality, but through the prism of immediacy and sincerity.

How does a girl from the small town of Klesov live, in which illegal amber mining is the only way to earn money? But can a young man from Donbass who found himself in peaceful Kharkov find salvation from the shadows of the past and fears of war? Anyway, how to learn to speak for yourself and, more importantly, to hear others? Indeed, this is how one can become a Man himself with a capital letter.

The creators of the play took the world of teenagers seriously. The performance turned out to be real: there is a place for laughter and for tears.

The director is Vlad Belozorenko.

We are waiting for you at this touching and deep performance!
