ZoomTime [SMUTA]

Center of Contemporary Art DAKH, Kyiv/Ukraine
Performance | In Ukrainian with English subtitles

A new theatrical format!

A large-scale theatrical painting in three acts—a dense sensory immersion into the Time of Troubles. Live acting and viewing enables us to live inside the birth of a period marked by natural disasters and severe political, economic, social, and state crises. Death is very modern. So is the courage to make a choice—any choice.

ZoomTime [SMUTA] is a joint project by director Vlad Troitskyi, playwright and theater philosopher KLIM, and a new generation of DAKH actors. It is dedicated to the Smuta period: Godunov, Ivan the Terrible, False Dmitry, Marina Mniszech… A period when everything in life that was certain, everything that life was built upon, turned out to be irrelevant.
