COUNTING SHEEP: A Guerilla Folk Opera

Lemon Bucket Orkestra


A rousing call to arms led by guerrilla-folk party-punks Lemon Bucket Orkestra. Based on the creators' personal experiences during the 2014 Kiev uprising, Counting Sheep invites you to lose yourself in the events that changed the course of Ukraine's history forever. Sing, march, protest, dance, eat, help, recoil, fight, laugh, cry—this is immersive theatre at its most gripping. Sung in traditional Ukrainian polyphony and bolstered by first-hand footage from behind the barricades, Counting Sheep is an electrifying exploration of human resilience.

For this raucous party-meets-performance, Lemon Bucket Orkestra is taking over King's Hall. Immerse yourself in the midst of the action of the hall below (includes dining and dancing!), or safely observe the events unfold from up on the balcony. 

As close as one could get to experiencing a revolution without actually putting your life on the line.
