Readings of Mark Ravenhill’s play “Pool (No Water)” at the PinchukArtCentre on December 22

19 December 2012

On Saturday December 22, 2012, at 20:00 the PinchukArtCentre invites to readings of a play by a British play writer Mark Ravenhill “Pool (No Water)”. The event will be held under the literature program of the art centre, being the first happening dedicated to the readings of the contemporary drama. The program is intended to initiate a dialogue between art and literature, to demonstrate exhibits in literature context and to offer a special view of the art objects presented at the art centre. 

The event will take place at the 3rd floor of the art centre next to the works of Jonatas de Andrade, winner of the Special Prize of the Future Generation Art Prize 2012. Due to a limited number of seats (60) registration in advance is a must.

Mark Ravenhill’s “Pool (No Water)” is a story of artistically ambitious friends who split up and start working individually, once they gained some popularity as a group. The play explores phenomena of contemporary art and collaborative practices, as well as a place of an artist in today’s society.

Reading of “Pool (No Water)” at the PinchukArtCentre will be the 1st presentation of translation of the play and the 1st presentation of the play in Ukraine. Ukrainian cinema and theatre actor and Honoured Artist of Ukraine Vitaly Linetsky will read the text.

The event will be conducted in collaboration with DramPortal.

Reading is a version of a theatre show, which does not suppose to create a visual storyline of the piece, but is close to the textual performance. It is a theatre genre, where artists declaim at sight, intone and gesticulate, but do not give full-grown images, proposing scenic sketches of roles.

To register for the event please call +380 44 590 08 58

Registered event participants will have priority entry to the art centre.
