CHORNOBYLDORF

A post-apocalyptic Magnum Opus brimming with fantasy, folklore, physical theatre, and virtual art

Roman Grygoriv & Ilia Razumeiko / OPERA APERTA (UA)

The world of Chornobyldorf is dedicated to research into an imaginary culturological post-apocalypse. CHORNOBYLDORF as “opera aperta” combines an archaeological opera (music-theatrical performance) in seven novels with a multiple and open-ended finale, a series of video performances created during expeditions through post-industrial landscapes, two fictional Institutions, the Anthropological Museum and the Cultural Institute of CHORNOBYLDORF plus a real virtuality opera — a space that blends all physical, video, and textual elements of the project online.

After surviving a series of disasters, the descendants of humanity find themselves in a post-society i.e. after the death of capitalism, opera, and philosophy. Wandering among the ruins of nuclear power plants, abandoned churches, theatres, and galleries they try to recreate their lost civilization through archaeological performance rituals as universal symbols and signs, which are again misinterpreted, gradually dissolve in a white noise of nature.

“This impressive group of musicians and singers has been in Rotterdam before. We are pleased to see them return as the winners of an MTNOW Award! This will be a very special occasion for Rotterdam; a tribute to the Ukrainian culture.” – Guy Coolen (artistiek directeur O.)

“Chornobyldorf presents another version of the nuclear post-apocalypse through a situation of overcoming information entropy amid cultural chaos, silence, and stillness rather than by encountering monsters and mutants in a horror theater.”
