The opening performance of the Freedom Festival “Choose a better verison” is coming back to Estonia and will continue its journey to Latvia!

The play was created in cooperation with the Kyiv Dramaturgs Theater, directed by Valters Sīlis, the new artistic director of the Liepaja Theater, who worked with four Ukrainian actors in both Kyiv and Narva.

“If you are here and listening to this meditation, this means that the universe has brought you to the right place. Make yourself comfortable and close your eyes, feel how your feet touch the ground. The ground that is powerful and fertile Ukraine. These feet wish to stand in a world where there is no…”

The me you once knew is gone. The you I once knew is also gone. They tell me that I should write my experience down. No one needs this experience.

Duration: 1h 35min.

In Ukrainian with English and Estonian translation.

Trigger warning: this play contains loud noises, smoke, guns and cursing.
