Independent art from Ukraine

  • Festival

The festival “Nebenan/Поруч – Independent Art from Ukraine” invites from 28.06.-02.07.2023 to performances, concerts, lectures, workshops and talks by and with Ukrainian artists and scientists. On the one hand, the contributions make visible how the war and the tense situation (existing since the annexation of Crimea in 2014) influence the biographies of the invited artists and affect their artistic practice in terms of content and form. At the same time, the program points show the multi-layered identity of Ukraine, its traditions and histories, its pop cultural influences and contemporary aesthetics. In the Festspielhaus and the Kulturgarten, HELLERAU presents artistic works and offers the opportunity for encounters, exchange and discussion.

With: Theatre of Playwrights, mariia&magdalyna, Hooligan Art Community, Svitlana Oleksiuk & Viktor Ruban, Fo Sho, Morwan, Dmytro Levytskyi, Olha Filonchuk, Andriy May, Bliadski Circus Queebaret, and many more.
