‘Kurbas: New Worlds’
Mystetskyi Arsenal puts on a display of the worlds created by the 1920s avant-garde director Les Kurbas in his Kyiv and Kharkiv theater plays. Kurbas used the actors’ movement to represent an explosion at a factory, experimented with cinema to display the characters’ thoughts, and to transform them into mere images onstage. A big part of the Kurbas experience were also the cubist and futuristic theater sets, and music closely tied to the live action. Sets, costumes, photographs, and recordings of Kurbas’ plays can be seen in the art complex until Dec. 2. “Kurbas: New Worlds.” Mystetskyi Arsenal (10-12 Lavrska St.) Oct. 17. 6:30 p.m. Oct. 18 - Dec. 2. Tue-Sun. 11 a.m. - 8 p.m. Hr 4080. Free for children under 12, people with disabilities, veterans and any museum employees.
