Counting Sheep is a deeply personal retelling of the Maidan in Ukraine, an immersive Ukrainian folk opera set to the sounds of beloved guerilla-folk party-punk band The Lemon Bucket Orkestra. It is January 2014. Mark Marczyk touches down in Kyiv and is quickly thrust into a nation on the eve of Revolution, a volatile whirlwind of tragedy mixed with hope, solidarity torn apart by brutal violence.
Counting Sheep is a strikingly visceral exploration into the politics of revolution, beating with the heart of a people yearning for a better tomorrow. It is a stirring call-to-action, an affirmation of the human condition amidst a country in disrepair.
Counting Sheep is an invitation to experience the spirit of the Maidan, complete with song, dance, and an entire Ukrainian feast.
Counting Sheep had its initial, sold-out 11-show presentation at the St. Vladimir Institute in the winter of 2015, and returned for another sold out run as part of the 2015 SummerWorks Performance Festival.
