Teatr-Pralnia with CCA Dakh

A rambunctious super-charged puppet cabaret from Kyiv

Trolls prowl and conflicts rage in online propaganda. External actors force themselves across borders precipitating an icy hot international stalemate. Thousands take to the streets demanding transparency and change.

This is the context for TseSho?/What’s That?, a super-charged puppet cabaret of real time events and Facebook feeds, iconic Ukrainian poetry, catchy vamps, and improvised action. Rambunctious and audacious, the piece questions through the intense lens of childhood. How do we understand? Who are we in a time of sensationalized information and deceptive surfaces? Where is our place in our world and in history? What’s That?

A production of the breakthrough Teatr-Pralnia (Laundry Theater) with Ukraine’s leading contemporary hub, CCA Dakh, directed by theatrical disruptor, Vlad Troitsky.
