CONTRA SPEM SPERO - Auch hoffnungslos hoff ich im Leben

In the organizer's words:

In 1911, the poet, playwright and translator Lesja Ukrajinka wrote one of the most beautiful dramatic works of European literature: The Forest Song. Inspired by Ukrainian folklore and her own longing for home. Haunted by childhood memories, the poet revisits her exhausting and eventful life while writing. A theater production by Ensemble Integral in cooperation with Theater Malanka from Kyiv and Bürgerhaus Kalk.
