Theaterlabor Bielefeld, Bielefeld, Germany and Kultura Medialna,
The interdisciplinary performance by the Theaterlabor Bielefeld in cooperation with the Ukrainian Kultura Medialna festival and the Latvian filmmaker Egons `Zee´ Upitis focuses on artistic perspectives on the violent conflict in the Ukraine. The borders between the conflict’s parties – Ukrainians and separatists – are removed in a virtual space; the front lines dissolve. In the form of a 360° documentary film, the separation of the two sides will be cinematically blurred in clever transitions. As a part of the project „Crisis – Trauma – Hope“, BORDERLINE is attempting to make the political situation and crisis tangible, and overcome it in solidarity. The project’s partners will develop an installation from the video documentation; it will be presented as a video walk with live elements.
