“City Z: Watchmen” is the author’s, exclusive project of the New Theatre. This is the answer to the difficult questions of our time. This musically and visually rich performance will not leave anyone indifferent.
In search of a better life, some leave Ukraine for the West, while others, on the contrary, roll up their sleeves and enter a period of hard work and civic self-sacrifice. Is there a chance to change life in Ukraine for the better, and what needs to be done to achieve this? How to stop the war, and how to force the authorities to serve the people? These are some of the questions we ask ourselves almost every day. These are the questions we want to answer with the help of our performance. Our hero Ivan returns from the war in Donbas after being wounded, devastated and embittered. But on his way he meets unusual people – the Guardians, who help him to find the meaning of life and his destiny again.
The genre of “sound-vision-drama” or “performance-cinema” is a new word in theatrical art. It expands the boundaries of perception and gives both actors and spectators new sensations and creative opportunities to express their feelings and ideas. “City Z: Watchmen” is the author’s, exclusive project of the New Theatre. This is the answer to the difficult questions of our time. This musically and visually rich performance will not leave anyone indifferent.
