BERLIN: ZVIZDAL (Chernobyl – so far so close)

Saturday, Feb. 16, 2019 – Saturday, Feb. 16, 2019

MG_7957-e1537284268370

BERLIN’s Zvizdal is a cinematic play that follows the day-to-day existence of an elderly couple living in the abandoned Chernobyl forbidden zone. To create the work, the BERLIN team traveled to the village of Zvizdal to document how the couple continues to live, work, and survive 30 years after the nuclear disaster of 1986. The resulting film, sculpture and set portray the world of Pétro and Nadia, their love, and their stubborn refusal to allow an invisible danger to separate them from their home.

TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE IN EARLY JANUARY

The presentation of BERLIN: Zvizdal at DiverseWorks is the final stop on a North American tour co-organized by Fusebox, Austin that includes presentations at the Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus; the Cincinnati Contemporary Arts Center; the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; PuSH International Performing Arts Festival, Vancouver; and The Long Center for Performing Arts, Austin.
