Documentary Performance Crimea, 5am

Crimea, 5аm is a documentary interactive performance drawing on the literary work of Ukrainian authors Natalka Vorozhbyt and Anastasiia Kosodii.

Through personal stories and testimonies of love and struggle in Crimea today, the play focuses on the record of human rights violations in the Crimean Peninsula since the unlawful Russian temporary occupation. Civil activists, journalists, bloggers, photographers, who are mainly Crimean Tatars, have been subjected to political persecution bу the Russian regime, since 2014.

Combining victim and activist interviews, stories of 11 political prisoners and their families, Crimea, 5am recasts vital issues of justice and cultural liberty and the forces that would repress them. A cast of actors, musicians, activists and community participants will stage a reading of Crimea, 5am in the UK marking Human Rights Day in December 2022.

The original production of Crimea, 5аm was co-authored and directed by Dmytro Kostiumynskyi and produced by Dollmen. The UK performance is directed by Josephine Burton and produced by Dash Arts.
