Scenes from Kherson by Natalia Blok
Matvii is eighteen and locked up in the Ukrainian city of Kherson. Actually, he wants to become a film director and go out with his girlfriend. But the war has broken into his life. On the phone he reassures his mother, who has fled to Switzerland. He takes care of the pets of friends who have fled and survives with a cat, a parrot and a hamster in his flat. When will he make his own escape? Until then, he documents war scenes on the streets of Kherson with his mobile phone. Matvii's story represents the fate of all young people who have to grow up in the midst of war and fight for their right to a normal life. The scenes were written down by his mother, the Ukrainian author Natalia Blok, who now lives in Basel.

Nahe Vergangenheit, die sich in der Fiktion des Stückes vermittelt, steht neben der aktuellen Gegenwart. Dass es dabei nicht um einen Versuch, Realität abzubilden geht, liegt auch am Stück selbst. Natalia Bloks Text hat eine ganz eigene Form: Well made Play, Tragikomödie mit viel Witz und Humor.
