Artist Dasha Podoltseva grew up in the typical housing blocks in Ukraine, Panelka, along with over half of the country’s population. In the current Russian invasion, the world has become familiar with media images of Panelka as bomb damaged shells of buildings.
In this experiential theatre performance, Dasha explores the architecture’s modernist identity as her urban heritage through childhood memories of growing up in these buildings and her love of the repeated panel designs. The artist considers hope in terms of how domesticity might be reshaped after the war.
