Pyretic is thrilled to announce that a digital recording of our celebrated theatrical production of Barvinok by Lianna Makuch is now available online on Video on Demand!

“Barvinok is a special kind of behind-the-scenes achievement in theatrical storytelling… You shouldn’t miss the chance to see it…” Liz Nicholls, 12th Night

Set in 2017, just 3 years after the Russian invasion in 2014, Barvinok weaves traditional polyphonic Ukrainian folk music and dramatic storytelling to tell a personal story behind the unimaginable experience of war, both past and present.

This is a digital recording of the celebrated theatre performance, filmed in Edmonton, AB in September 2022.

Proceeds from this video will be donated in support of Ukrainian veterans of the Bob Marley Squad to purchase nonlethal defensive equipment.
