‘Kurbas: New Worlds’ exhibition opening

On October 17, 18:30 Kurbas: New Worlds exhibition will be opened at Mystetskyi arsenal. 

Les Kurbas was an innovative director, who staged experimental theatre pieces in Kyiv and Kharkiv during the 1920s and transformed the idea of what theatre is. He created new worlds on stage that invited his audiences to clearly look through various layers of the present, review the past and imagine a new future.

Kurbas: New Worlds examines what Les Kurbas really did as a theatre director. It is presented in two sections. The first is devoted to Kurbas’s experimental work with his company — the Berezil Artistic Association — in Kyiv (1922–1926). The second features productions of the Berezil National Theatre in Kharkiv, which Kurbas headed from 1926 to 1933.

Project curators:

  • Virlana Tkacz, theater director, writer, director of the Yara Arts Group. 
  • Tetiana Rudenko, head curator of the Museum of Theater, Music and Cinema of Ukraine.
  • Waldemart Klyuzko, artist, art curator.

We are happy to invite media representatives to the opening and press tour, which will be held on October 17 at 17:00. Accreditation Application form.
