SHOWING Natalia Bulatova - Echoes of Resilience

In the organizer's words:

"Echoes of Resilience" is a performance about processing feelings during the war in Ukraine. The piece is a combination of interviews, dance and art therapy, which can be enriching for all people who are struggling with stress or depression. During the performance, the audience can learn how to deal with stress and sadness.

We are a team of 3 Ukrainian women who fled the war, consisting of 2 choreographers and 1 art therapist, dramaturge and director. We come from Kharkiv in Ukraine and now live in Germany and Belgium, where we create our theater productions with a lot of warmth and sincerity. Our experiences drive us to create performances that portray the realities, feelings and values of Ukrainians in the midst of conflict. Our goal is to create contemporary performances that seamlessly combine dance, drama, art therapy and video.

Our project also aims to show how to overcome deep depression with the help of art therapy exercises, which we will incorporate into the performance.
