The revolution starves its children
Theater performance and supporting program about the "power of memory"

For the last time, Futur3 is showing its international theater production DIE REVOLUTION LÄSST IHRE KINDER VERHUNGERN at Depot 2 at Schauspiel Köln. The multi-nominated and award-winning play about the Holodmor - Stalin's starvation terror in Ukraine in the 1930s - paints a large panoramic picture of historical events and personal stories.

To mark the occasion, we will be discussing current references and historical taboos in Ukrainian and German cultures of remembrance with experts around the performance.

Make Art Not War

A solidarity happening for the people of Ukraine

After seven years of war, which has cost 13,000 lives and forced over a million people to flee their homes, the people of Ukraine, including our artist colleagues, are once again in a very threatening situation. We are receiving more and more messages from colleagues who have packed a flight bag, are being trained in shooting or have already left their homes out of concern. As artists in Cologne, we want to send a signal of solidarity with the people in Ukraine whose peace, freedom and lives are under threat. They need all our support, now!
That is why we are celebrating a happening of the arts, with music, readings, talks and live discussions with people from all regions of Ukraine.
