“Often playful, but also mournful and even foreboding.” - The Guardian

Boom Arts proudly presents Teatr-Pralnia (Laundry Theatre) with CCA Dakh of Ukraine in their first-ever US tour. This fearless music-theatre ensemble, sister troupe to the international sensation DakhaBrakha, draws on real time events, Facebook feeds, iconic Ukrainian poetry, catchy vamps, and improvised action to bring their audacious, super-charged puppet cabaret production TseSho?/What’s That? to life. Through live music, projections, puppetry, and original text and songs, they ask: How do we understand the world around us? Who can we trust in a world of “fake news,” corruption and propaganda? Can we discern truth from deception? As one ensemble member told The Guardian newspaper: “Our performances are like a mirror of things that are happening… We want our performance to be like an injection for people’s minds.”

PUBLIC LIBRARY PRESENTATION: "Fresh Voices from Ukraine: Meet the Artists of Teatr-Pralnia (Laundry Theatre)"

Tuesday, October 23, 6-7:30pm at Central Library
Presented in partnership with World Oregon, featuring guest Professor Stepan Stimek of Lewis & Clark University..

Taking Kiev -- and the world -- by storm ever since graduating from the puppetry program of Ukraine's national theatre school in 2015, Teatr-Pralnia create fresh, unusual performances that evoke what it means to make art in a constantly changing society. Their multidisciplinary projects are now housed at CCA Dakh, Vlad Troitskyi’s cultural center in Kyiv, also home to the ethno-chaos quartet DhakaBrakha, and performance festival GOGOLFest. No reservation needed. First come, first served.

MURKA PARTY! Speakeasy Odessa-Style with Chervona on Saturday, October 27 - directly following TseSho?/What's That? at The Paris Theatre!
