The Ukrainian Words Project

April 29 – May 12, 2024

 

As part of the Worldwide Readings Project, Theatre Novi Most is bringing an evening of new play readings and Story Circles with members of the community to various locations across Minnesota.

In an effort to uplift Ukrainian voices, each event presents an hour-long staged reading of newly commissioned plays by Ukrainian playwrights written since the war began in February 2022. The readings are followed by optional Story Circles, welcoming a collective processing of the work and sharing of stories with members of the audience who wish to stay. Story Circles provide a creative and safe space for Ukrainians, others from the post Soviet diaspora, and general audiences in Minnesota to process what’s happening in Ukraine.

Leaders of the Story Circles will facilitate and welcome a collective processing of the work and sharing of stories from our Ukrainian and post-Soviet community members. Story Circles give Ukrainians, others from the post-Soviet diaspora, and general audiences in Minnesota a chance to process what’s happening in Ukraine and the war’s effect on them. In collaboration with the storytellers, the narratives told will be turned into a new piece of verbatim theatre by Theatre Novi Most in 2025-2026.

Admission is FREE, with limited seating available. Donations to support Ukrainian efforts are highly encouraged.

Directed by Lisa Channer and Vladimir Rovinsky
