Voices of Ukraine
25 Mar 2022
‘Voices of Ukraine’ is a digital web-based platform presenting multilingual readings of Ukrainian poetry and drama by artists and performers affected by the Russian invasion. Volta International Festival in London will commission, design and build a new digital space that will feature 30 filmed readings of Ukrainian poetry and drama by Ukrainian artists. The texts will be read in Ukrainian with English subtitles and will be published on the platform in their original language with the translation alongside. Biographies of each writer and performer will be highlighted. They will include a short written statement by the artist about their experiences before and after the invasion, and their personal connection to the piece.
