SИN performance on May 21 at the Holodomor Museum

9 May 2023
On 05/21/2023 at 4:00 p.m., the National Museum of the Holodomor-Genocide will host the performance “SИN” for the fourth time based on the story of one of the most outstanding writers of the Ukrainian “shot revival” Valerian Pidmohylnyi
The performance reveals the theme of the mass man-made famine committed by Bolshevik Russia, which is 1921-1923, covering the southern lands of our country.
The Soviet regime exported grain from Ukraine in order to supply its industrial regions and sell it. This led to the fact that millions of Ukrainians began to starve.
The government at that time used man-made famine as a tool of political control and pressure on the population.
The relevance of the performance of the ПОГLЯD “SИN” Theatre Workshop is that it reminds us how important it is to remember and be aware of history, which forms our present and future, to prevent the tragic events of the past, which, regretfully, are repeated even now during a brutal war Russia against Ukraine, including the export of grain from the occupied territories, as well as blocking the transfer of Ukrainian grain to those countries that need it.

The main character of the play, Hrytsko Vasiurenko – SON – sees how his fellow villagers have to give away their bread, land and livestock. He sees the hopelessness of the people who get used to hunger and treat it as their everyday life. He sees how indifference prevails over mercy. But the SON does not give up and remains a human being in inhumane conditions.

The leitmotif of the performance is Ukrainian folk songs, performed live by over 30 voices of the honoured folk song and dance ensemble of Ukraine, “Darnychanka” of the Pechersk Centre for Artistic and Technical Creativity.
