An Interactive Theater Experience:
Welcome to the Revolution!
Canada's beloved "guerilla-folk party-punk band," the Lemon Bucket Orkestra, leads a rousing call to arms in the immersive and interactive Ukrainian folk-opera, Counting Sheep. Sung in traditional Ukrainian polyphony and bolstered by first-hand video footage from the streets of Kiev, the production invites audience members to dance, sing, and eat—and hurl foam bricks, dodge men with guns, witness violence, and join in the rituals of public mourning—as part of an emotionally gripping remembrance of the 2014 Maidan Revolution in Ukraine.
Please note: this event is performed in Ukrainian and is general admission seating.
