Chernobyl project?


We are working on a theatre show on the Chernobyl theme "The way I loved. Chernobyl" as well as on several satellite events as photo exhibition and "nuclear talks" in order to enhance public awareness on the nuclear energy.


The story


In that is the beginning and the end of all. All is in man, all for man!

M. Gorky


Ludmila and Vassily just got married, and are expecting their first child. Just an ordinary couple, there seems to be nothing unusual here. Unfortunately for them, they live in Pripiat, which is the closest town to the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant...

On the night of the 26th of April 1986, Vassily is one of the first firemen to arrive and work on the roof of the 4th block of the reactor, where the meltdown occurred.




The texts


Our texts are inspired by the true stories of people who witnessed Chernobyl accident reported by 2015 Nobel prize winner, Svetlana Alexievich

(Voices from Chernobyl : Chronicle of the Future / translated by Antonina W. Bouis. – London : Aurum Press, 1999. – Translation of Černobyl'skaja molitva

Voices from Chernobyl : the Oral History of a Nuclear Disaster / translation and preface by Keith Gessen. – Normal : Dalkey Archive Press, 2005. – Translation of Černobyl'skaja molitva )


Why bother talking about this today?


Today, 30 years after this tragic accident, the theme of Chernobyl is more relevant than ever.

On one hand, one can easily draw some parallels with the current political climate in the former Soviet block countries, where observers draw attention to the lack of freedom of speech and respect for human rights.

On the other hand, nuclear energy is one of the alternatives to help us satisfy our increasing demand for energy and address our global climate change concerns.

Finally, we simply have to talk about events like Chernobyl and bring to the attention of our earth community the impact of technological advancement at the expense of our environment and well-being. There have been several man made ecological disasters since Chernobyl, but this stands out as a symbol of human suffering.

We already spent over 400 hours of work on this show and obtained agreements with 4 theatres to show our theatrical creation to public. We now need your help to finish the staging and present our work.

i think the theme of Chernobyl is very timely and good food for thought as it reminds us all to the dangers of complacency between the policy makers, regulators and the industry (nuclear in particular) that could lead to massive human catastrophies.
заканчивается время, отведенное для сбора средств для реализации проекта о Чернобыле. Проект состоится!!!!! Так важно, что эта тема не потеряла своей актуальности через 30 лет после трагедии. Именно тогда, благодаря мужеству и самопожертвованию простых людей - "ликвидаторов", была спасена и Украина, и Белоруссия, и Европа от еще более страшных последствий! Спасибо за этот проект, за вашу память и пусть никогда не повторится эта трагедия в жизни людей, не будет Чернобыля, Фокусимы, а будет жизнь, любовь и рождаются здоровые дети!!!
Bonne chance à vous !
