Hooligan Art Community are a Ukrainian theatre group based in Kyiv, ‘making explosive performance with music and pure emotion in empty buildings and iconic spaces.’ Most recently their new show Bunker Cabaret, born in a Kyiv bomb shelter, premiered beneath Somerset House. The Community’s artists are from the first generation born in independent Ukraine. Their theatre and their vision for their culture will be showcased with imagery and video footage in this hour-long discussion.
Considering the role of art in times of war, artist identity and responsibility, and the power of hybrid performances to transcend linguistic boundaries, panellists include director, librettist and performance maker Peter Cant, video artist and filmmaker Liubov Sliusareva, and actor and producer Danylo Shramenko and academic Dr Charlotte de Mille.
