🙌 One of a kind interactive performance about "Revolution of Dignity" in Ukraine 📣🎼💛💙

This year marks 4 year anniversary of Revolution of Dignity. To celebrate and honor this important date of Ukraine's modern history, join us for Canada's beloved "guerilla-folk party-punk band," the Lemon Bucket Orkestra, an immersive and interactive Ukrainian folk-opera, "Counting Sheep".

Sung in traditional Ukrainian polyphony and bolstered by first-hand video footage from the streets of Kyiv, the production invites audience members to dance, sing, and eat 🍽️— and hurl foam bricks, dodge men with guns, witness violence, and join in the rituals of public mourning — as part of an emotionally gripping remembrance of the 2014 Maidan Revolution in Ukraine.

Those joining us on Saturday afternoon at Oakland Metro Operahouse will receive a special treat: a Q&A with the creators of "Counting Sheep", as well as some special guests (Ukraine and Bay Area's based Maidan participants). Stay tuned for more details!

Only 3 days in Stanford and 3 days in Oakland! Don't miss!

Counting Sheep: A Guerrilla Folk Opera dedicated to the Revolution of Dignity, brings an immersive experience putting the viewers right in the middle of the events of 2013-2014 in Ukraine.

A sensation at the 2016 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Counting Sheep, a Ukrainian folk opera created by Mark and Marichka Marczyk (featuring Toronto’s Lemon Bucket Orkestra, a guerrilla-folk party-punk band), recounts the 2013 outbursts, violence, and sniper fire of Ukraine’s Maidan Revolution witnessed by the Marczyks themselves, who emigrated to Canada soon after. Through traditional choral songs, it explores the human condition in times of violent upheaval, evoking the yearning for a better tomorrow.

100 years ago, Ukraine (Ukrainian People's Republic or UNR at that time) declared independence. Ukraine has not, as many think, historically been simply part of Russia. It was recognized internationally, but attacked and conquered by the Bolsheviks.
And four years ago, the next wave of attacks by Russia began and continue, even if this has disappeared from the news. (c)
