The project is devoted to Bohdan-Ihor Antonych, the well-known 20th-century Ukrainian poet. It is an attempt to picture Bohdan-Ihor Antonych’ s poetry world, a sort of musical eclecticism, the combination of Lemko folk songs, post-rock psychedelia, recitation of poetry, prose, rich scenography and video art. The project will also present specially prepared for the event translations of Antonych’s poems and the fragments of the Twelve Rings novel by Yuri Andrukhovych (the narration about the life ofthat prominent poet).
The three parts of the performance are three versions of the ANTONYCH AT HOME concept.
1) His childhood in the Lemko village of Nowica;
2) Lviv as a surreal metropolis;
3) Eternity and space home under the star
The project’s premiere took place on 20 February 2016 in Lviv.
