Sergey Zhadan visiting Yermilov Center at the exhibition devoted to the creative work of Les Kurbas

The Kharkiv Center for Contemporary Art Yermilov Center continues the exhibition dedicated to the outstanding Ukrainian theatrical director Les Kurbas, whose work is closely connected with Kharkiv. The organizers of the exhibition recreated some of the scenery from the performances of Kurbas.
