The Song of the Forest

.…Andrii Prykhodko has created  a very important performance ... that gives us the opportunity "to read" Lesia Ukrainka not on the "horizontal" (as a fairytale), but on the "vertical" ... as a tragic story about total degradation – of nature, of a person, of ideas, of one’s own country. This performance is a tragicomic hyperventilation amid stifling rags and powdery snow—through which, little by little, the embroidery’s pattern is revealed . Oleh Verhelis, "Mirror of the Week"
