Westbury Theatre (10330 – 84 Ave)
Blood of Our Soil is a unique creative production presented through the imagination of a young
Ukrainian Canadian woman, depicting the struggles of the Ukrainian people against the atrocities of Stalin, to the horrors of Hitler, and draws disturbing parallels to the current Putin regime.
Innovative in its storytelling, Blood of Our Soil is a heart-rending and haunting comparison of the Ukrainian Canadian experience to true stories of people living in present day war-torn Ukraine. This multi-disciplinary performance integrates dramatic storytelling, live Ukrainian folk music, a fusion of Ukrainian and contemporary dance, and an audio-visual projection design that paints a landscape of both beauty and terror.
