BUNKER CABARET is a new performance by Hooligan Art Community that started life in the bomb shelters of Kyiv and now comes to Redruth via London. Combining music, poetry, dance and film, this unique theatre event is a powerful exploration of love versus totalitarianism, and the personal conflicts of making art in time of war.
About the company:
Hooligan Art Community is an independent theatre company established in Kyiv, Ukraine, in 2019. They make performances in non-traditional theatre spaces that explore the dynamic relationship between actor and audience. The group has worked entirely outside of the state theatre system creating work that advocates for freedom of expression and equality. On 24 February 2022, the full-scale Russian invasion brought War to all of Ukraine. The company’s work was disassembled overnight. On 18 August 2022, the artists reunited in the UK to create work together for the first time since February. BUNKER CABARET is Hooligan’s first opportunity to re-establish their practice and perform in the UK.
