An immersive theatre performance that unveils a gripping tale of hope, resilience, and the spirit of the Ukrainian people, Art of Courage is a captivating journey through the soul of Ukraine that promises to be a profound exploration of history, tradition and the enduring power of courage.
Experience ancient pagan traditions, witness haunting readings, the bloom of young romances, and join a quest for the elusive fern flower – a symbol of hope in despair. Dive into history’s pages, where the Ukrainian intelligentsia challenged the Soviet Union in the 1930s.
Feel the anguish of Holodomor – a deliberate act of starvation meant to subdue a nation. Stand with the defiant spirits who dared the streets of Maidan, rallying against a president controlled by R*ssia.
An ode to Ukrainian courage and a beacon of hope for freedom, audiences are sure to leave with the undeniable truth that courage and unity can illuminate even the darkest of times.
Developmental works of this production have been praised overseas as ‘an absolutely phenomenal show that moved me to tears’ and ‘a remarkably honest, informative, and gut-wrenching piece’.
Our narrative has been deemed ‘a thoughtful exploration of the art of storytelling that resonates with the spirit of the times’ and we can only anticipate more accolades with our final script.
All profits from this production will be donated to Razom for Ukraine to support children affected by the war. All creatives are generously donating their artistry in kind.
We are honoured to have the support of the Ukrainian Community of Queensland among other interstate Ukrainian organisations, as we collaborate with Brisbane Immersive to create the world within our venue.
Through the art of storytelling, we hope to inspire empathy, understanding, and solidarity, fostering a connection between our audience and the incredible culture woven into the fabric of Ukraine.
Inspired by true events, stories, and people, Art of Courage will provide an honest and authentic viewpoint on the current war.
