A sensation at the 2016 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Counting Sheep, a Ukrainian folk opera created by Mark and Marichka Marczyk (featuring Toronto’s Lemon Bucket Orkestra, a guerrilla-folk party-punk band), recounts the 2013 outbursts, violence, and sniper fire of Ukraine’s Maidan Revolution witnessed by the Marczyks themselves, who emigrated to Canada soon after. Through traditional choral songs, it explores the human condition in times of violent upheaval, evoking the yearning for a better tomorrow.

Recommended for mature audiences
