’Bad Roads’ is a theatre play written by the most acclaimed Ukrainian playwright Natalia Vorozhbyt. The play, inspired by Natalia’s trips and fieldwork in the conflict-affected regions in Eastern Ukraine, was commissioned by the Royal Court Theatre in London. ’Bad Roads’ is the first in-depth and semi-documentary dramaturgical exploration of the conflict in Ukraine since its beginning in 2014.
It is also the first Ukrainian play to capture the collateral damage suffered by women in wartime, on both sides of the frontline, and how war disfigures people, legitimises violence and shatters human dignity.
The aftermath and the wider repercussions of the Revolution of Dignity and the war in Eastern Ukraine have largely remained unexplored in contemporary Ukrainian theatre, which makes this project is an eloquent artistic expression on this important subject.

The socio-cultural forum as a platform for dialogue between the two regions of Ukraine with a different history and cultural background. The forum was devoted to Slobozhanshchyna (northeast region of Ukraine, includes Sumy, Kharkiv, part of Donetsk and Luhansk regions). It was to unite people with differing views and visions which are often biased to ‘otherness’. The forum’s program – the result of collaboration among academics, scholars, curators, artists, and other civil society activists from West/East Ukraine.
Cultural events had to provoke discussion and as a result to provide new insights, generate genuine interest and own attitudes to the Slobozhanschyna in Transcarpathia. Culture made these discussions not so radical but allow for a much wider than mere ‘political’ context. Knowledge and understanding of the differences and commonalities destroy the myths and stereotypes created by propaganda. The inclusivity of the project and its methods make its results stable.
The forum included more than 100 events within 6 directions – literature, lectures & discussions; visual arts, theatre & music, films, children & youth, fashion. 150 participants from Slobozhanshchyna, Transcarpathia, Kyiv and other regions.
With support of the Harald Binder Cultural Enterprises Grant Program occurred some events of the visual arts program.
