The performance is based on the artists’ personal experiences, the war in Ukraine, and takes inspiration from Mykoly Khyvylovy’s 1924 novella I am (a Romantic), where the head of the local Cheka, a communist law enforcement agency, must decide whether or not to sentence his mother to death in the name of the ideals of the Commune.

FEATURING: Audrey Rose Dégez, Lili Maritchka, Dégez, Daria Holovchanska, Yuliia Linnik, Olesia Zakharova, and Veronika Shuster
