transmission.UA: drama on the move
A long-term programme to support translation, promotion, and production of the modern Ukrainian drama in Europe, developed by the Ukrainian Institute.
About the programme
The programme covers a period from 2020 to 2022 and will be implemented in three countries: Poland, Germany and the United Kingdom.
The idea of implementing the programme arose because of low representation of the modern Ukrainian theatre pieces on the European theatres’ stages, the isolation of Ukrainian theatre and drama in the European humanitarian environment.
