Art Project for 30th Anniversary of Independence of Ukraine

Play “Eneida” by Ivan Kotliarevskyi, performed by the troop of Ivano-Frankivsk Drama Theatre captured all the space around the third high mountain top of the Carpathians on Saturday, August 21.

It became a sequel of the commenced social art project “THEATRICAL POPIVANNIA AT OBSERVATORY” under the Project “Adaptation of former observatory on the Pip Ivan mountain to the needs of alpine rescue service training center“ (PIMReC) under financial assistance of the European Union within  the cross-border cooperation Poland-Belarus-Ukraine 2014-2020. The art project is implemented under cooperation with Vasyl Stefanyk Precarpathian National University and PIMReC partners together with Ivano-Frankivsk National Academic Drama Theater named after Ivan Franko. Just as in the previous year, partner of the observatory renovation, i.e. Department of State Emergency Service of Ukraine in Ivano-Frankivsk region ensured implementation of the project “THEATRICAL POPIVANNIA AT OBSERVATORY”.

“Eneida” was performed at height of over two thousand meters. It was not only impressive! It simply gave the shudders.

The actors were playing, triggering rain and in a few minutes the first drops appeared … Scenery of the “stage” was the sea of the Carpathians, it was changing all the time and it seemed it was playing together with the actors. The mountains were getting darker and lighter. This incredible play of nature enhanced the impressions. There were no secrets of the backstage, as everything was spread before the eyes. It was sincere and real. True art.

“Eneida” was included into the repertoire of Ivano-Frankivsk theatre troop after tragic events of the Revolution of Dignity in 2013-2014, when the first deaths and the first new heroes in history of Ukraine appeared. At that moment, it was very difficult to choose the repertoire, recollected director of the theatre – Rostyslav Derzhypilskyi. It was inappropriate to perform comedies, there was no wish to perform tragedies, as everything was rather tragic at that time. Just at that moment head of the theatre paid attention to “Eneida”.

Rector of Vasyl Stefanyk Precarpathian National University said that the play “Eneida” on top of Pip Ivan mountain was an important project, as this place became a new art stage on the third high mountain top of Ukrainian Carpathians. The play itself was rather symbolic for the 30th Anniversary of Independence of Ukraine.
