Ethno Contemporary Ballet: Say it quieter if you can

A play-study of the identity of a Ukrainian woman. Dance, as a translation of our genetic code: everything that has been accumulated over the centuries from Berehynia Trypillya to the spirit of feminism of the 21st century. December 14th at 7 pm, Hurjaruuth Stage, Cable Factory.

Скажи тихіше, якщо зможеш від українського сучасного балету Ethno Contemporary Ballet на сцені Hurjaruuth. Вистава безкоштовна, квитки можна забронювати у Hurjaruuth.

The play “Say it quieter If you can” is a story about real life: about love, about betrayal, about hatred, about the birth of a new life, about death, about humility, about human fortitude, about friendship, about joy, about the cyclical nature of our life. In the performance, we actively use endangered household items and find new meanings for them.

Ethno Contemporary Ballet – literally “the ballet of the modern people.” In its theatrical and dance art, it explores the system of symbols, permeated with references to everyday rituals and ceremonial rites, reflecting the deep worldview of peoples, combining authentic music with modern interpretations and images.
