On January 25-26, at 6 pm, the Lviv Puppet Theater will host a performance of "Sunset Tango".
A genre mystery-detective story set against the backdrop of (inter)war Lviv. A large multinational city that lives its own life: people are born, die, love, quarrel and make peace here. Among the other residents are four friends: a Ukrainian, a Pole, a German, and a Jew.
For Orest Barbaryka, death is a very emotional topic. After all, during the First World War, his parents' generation gave their lives. And now the boy is trying to understand why. The year 1939 presents our young heroes with new challenges. The next generation, whose lives have inevitably changed, faces an important choice.
Memory, like a malfunctioning Time Machine, takes us to distorted memories of the past and present. Vynnychuk's trademark vulgar and absurdist humour, in which a funeral home becomes a platform for stand-up sales of eternal life, provokes philosophical reflections. The violin melody of "Tango" sticks in your head and starts to echo from every corner of your subconscious.
