"Щоденник рядового Т."

On 7th March, 2014 in Educational Theatre of the Kiev National Theatre, Film and Television University named after Karpenko-Kary were presented performance "Soldier's T. Dairy" based on play written by Alexander Gavroche. Performance dedicated to the 200th anniversary of Taras Shevchenko's birth became a graduate work of 5th year students. Director Evgeny Nischuk is lecturer of the University and the newly appointed Minister of Culture of Ukraine. He invited me to participate in the creation of sand prints which have become a part of performance's decorations. During the show I was trying to recreate scenes from Taras Shevchenko's life with a help of sand animation.
Music for "Soldier's T. Dairy" was written by composer Roman Grinkov from Kiev. The performance captured the spirit of the late XIX - early XX century. To participate in the play director also invited members of "PoliKarp" band - Valerij Gladunets and violin virtuoso Sergej Okhrimchuk.
