Bomb Shelter. Art Resistance Night invites the audience to spend a whole night at the theatre, experiencing through art a parallel reality that is now everyday life in every city in Ukraine. At the center, matresses and pillows for the audience to listen to the sounds of war, which have been rendered strange and unfamiliar. Live concerts (including Dakh Daughters, Ragapop and Stus:Passerby) and performances, video art shows and readings by Ukrainian artists and the Thalia Theater ensemble take place throughout the night at various locations. Considerate and respectful, this immersive theatre experience attempts to make the crisis vividly palpable, alternating between sensory and emotional overload and anxious waiting, between reality and dream. Finally, at the crack of dawn, everyone comes together to have breakfast.

SHORTLY ABOUT PARTICIPANTS
A graduate of Pyotr Tchaikovsky National Music Academy of Ukraine (music composition). She worked

Performance-concert «Ukraine Fire» – a testament to the absolute crime of Russia against Ukraine – a
brutal invasion of our country. «We are here today because we are musicians and artists. It is very
important for us to feel support and solidarity with Ukraine. The Ukrainian people became victims of
Russian aggression and heroes of resistance at the same time. Because slaves cannot defeat free
people, and light always overcomes the darkness».
Ragapop is a side project of Ruslana Khazipova and Anna Nikitina of Dakh Daughters, in
collaboration with Anton Ocheretyanyi. Essential for the band is its energy taken from Ukrainian culture,
the mysticism and eroticism of this place, no matter what language is used in a particular song.
Stus: Passerby – is a meditative chamber opera about love, tenderness and fragility of life the purpose
of which is to reveal the person of Vasyl Stus and his poetry. The project was created, the idea of which
was to make Stus sound, heartbreaking content of his poetry. These poems already have everything:
rhythm, style, meanings, melody and work with them — this is an attempt to get the most out of them
laid down by Stus.
WARНЯКАННЯ – it is an attempt to document and therapeutically reflect on the events of the present
time, based on a war diary combined with electronic music. The project is created in real-time and is a
certain reflection and artistic response to the full-scale invasion of Russian occupation troops in
