The publication contains materials collected during working on the Kurbas: New Worlds exhibition, which took place at the Mystetskyi Arsenal on October 17–December 2, 2018 and manifested the curatorial view of the creative work of Les Kurbas, a Ukrainian avant-garde theater director of the early twentieth century. Most museum objects in the exhibition are courtesy of the Museum of Theater, Music and Cinema of Ukraine.

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.
