Show in support of Ukraine
Seven talented Circassian artists recount their attachment to Ukraine, their country of origin, in an exceptional show combining art of movement, theatre, classical and contemporary dance at the Grimaldi Forum at 20:00 in Salle Prince Pierre.
The Ukrainian acrobats push the limits of the human body and take you on the traces of their personal stories, between love, freedom and tradition. Drawing on the roots of the performers, the musical universe of the production is a subtle alliance of Tatar, Moldovan and Ukrainian folk sounds.
Directed and choreographed by Bence Vagi, founder and artistic director since 2012, of the Hungarian contemporary circus company Recirquel, My Land has been a phenomenal success since its premiere in 2018 at the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh. Played for more than 200 times across Europe, this show takes on a special dimension with the news of the war in Ukraine.
All proceeds from this performance will be donated by Grimaldi Forum Monaco to the Monegasque Red Cross for Ukraine.
