Garter Lane Arts Centre, Wednesday 1st March 2023, 10:30am – 11:30am
All welcome to attend two short films by Hooligan Art Community, a theatre collective from Kyiv, Ukraine. The screenings will be followed by a discussion with the company.
On 24 February 2022, the full-scale Russian invasion brought war to all of Ukraine. Hooligan Art Community’s work was disassembled overnight and its artists displaced. Two months after the invasion began, the situation in Ukraine allowed women from the company to travel to a residency in Germany, while two male artists remained in Ukraine, restricted by law from leaving the country. For the next four months, the collective made performance, film and installation work in different locations documenting their experiences of War and being displaced.
This screening event is made possible through the support of Voices of Ukraine, Theatre Royal, The Garter Lane Arts Centre, Creative Waterford, Waterford Libraries and Europe Direct Waterford.
Followed by Refreshments. Information stands on educational and community supports will be available in the foyer.
