A new world music-theater work based on ancient winter ritual songs from the Carpathians.

Contemporary scenes used in the production have been written by Serhiy Zhadan, Ukraine's hottest young poet, who was leader of the tent city in Kharkiv (the "Chicago" of Ukraine) during the country's recent "Orange Revolution." The multidisciplinary theatrical work is being created by director Virlana Tkacz in collaboration with Zhadan. It centers on a midwinter ritual of the Carpathians in which the forces of nature are invited to dinner. The cast mixes American performers of Yara Arts Group with artists from Carpathians who will perform on traditional instruments, including ten-foot wooden horns.
