Roman Grygoriv and Illia Razumeiko
CHORNOBYLDORF. Archaeological opera in seven novels

the descendants of humanity who survived in a series of disasters,
find themselves in a post-society,
the world after the death of capitalism, opera, and philosophy.

wandering among the ruins of the nuclear power plants, abandoned churches, theaters, and galleries, they try to recreate the lost civilization through the archeological performances-rituals.

universal symbols and signs,
which are again misinterpreted,
gradually dissolve in a white noise of nature

DRAMMA PER MUSICA
The curtain of the abandoned folk theater on the Kakhovka Seashore rises to perform the last musical drama in human history: the white-faced girls perform the duo of opera divas; a furious Dosimetrist – Ulysses – is spinning around the stage looking for the tonality; the festive choir dedicates its lament to the god of time – Kronos.
