THE OLD WINDMILL
The performance was created based on Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale Old Windmill, based on the Christian parable. The protagonist of the tale - an old mill - is a home for the people. Mill cares about people – it makes flour and bakes bread, feeds them, raises children, protects them against bad weather, rain and snow, and keeps them warm in cold weather. The good old mill thought she was a part of this big family. But once people have decided that the mill is old, it was time to build a new mill. Therefore, the people burned down the old mill and built a new, modern mill in its place. Performance without words. Instead of words, the spectacle is filled with Ukrainian folk songs that carry the emotional burden of the play, so it can be enjoyed by any audience. The play involves three actors. The "black room" method was used.
