The documentary play End of Imitation 2.0 is based on the personal experiences of a group of independent theatre-makers from Ukraine who joined the artists residency programme of European Theatre Convention’s project “Theatre, Freedom, Dialogue: European Networking with Theatres in Ukraine and Belarus” in 2015. It is about the corruption of the theatre industry and the difficulties that independent artists in Ukraine face – which often results in emigration. It is about the existential experiences gathered while living and working in Germany, Austria and Georgia and the potential of it for the development of the Ukrainian theatre scene. It is about a feeling of uselessness, foreignness and of being a representative of the “third world”. At the same time, the project and play deal with the experience of being involved in operational and social communication processes with respect towards the human rights, equality and a forward-looking perspective on the world. It is about tolerance, joint responsibility for performance, and horizontal relationships; it is about transparent institutional structures with an open policy and a theatre that is integrated into public life.
