7.09. 21:00-23:00 Ukrainian nights: dinner stories “RETURN WITH A DREAM” invites visitors to the festival centre to revive the traditions of Ukrainian cuisine together with Ukrainian women and discover the life story of each woman. In the course of the evening, we will openly talk about how life has changed by the war – about how it started, who stayed at home, whether they managed to settle here, as well as how beliefs and values have changed. Olena from Poltava, Natalya from Kropivnitsky, two Tatyanas from Kharkiv, Antonina from Odessa, Lana from Rivne, Valentina and Yaroslava from Kyiv, Irina from Izyaslov, Ludmila and Irina from Brovari take part in the story. Director Laura Čaupale.
08.09. 21:00-23:00 Ukrainian nights: songs and stories with Tatjana Ibraimova and other women who came to Latvia fleeing the war in Ukraine.
The Ukrainian night began for all of us on February 24 at 4 a.m. We’ve all been waiting for the sunrise ever since. This new sun will become a symbol of our victory over darkness and evil. We invite you to a performance dedicated to teh children of war and their parents, to the birth of the sun, accompanied by Ukrainian songs and lullabies, prepared for you by war refugees from Ukraine.
