Synopsis


The award-winning (Scotsman Fringe First, Amnesty International Freedom of Expression) theatrical sensation comes to London in a brand new version from the directors of the Belarus Free Theatre.


Based on Mark and Marichka Marczyks' first hand experiences during the 2014 Kiev Uprising, Counting Sheep invites you to lose yourself in the events that changed the course of Ukrainian history forever.


Sing, march, protest, dance, eat, help, recoil, fight, laugh, cry.


With folk singing, found footage and revolutionary staging this 'Guerrilla Folk Opera' is an electrifying exploration of human resilience.


This production is a unique artistic collaboration between Mark and Marichka Marczyk, whose lives changed forever while fighting for freedom and love in Maidan Square, and Natalia Kaliada and Nicolai Khalezin, founders of Belarus Free Theatre, whose struggles with the repressive dictatorship in Belarus are well documented.


This joint theatrical statement from people who went through real life and death situations makes for an explosive stage experience.
