“Dear friends! Regretfully, Theatre on Podil will not participate in GogolFest – 2017. We are analyzing the crisis in which the festival was put, and are trying to do everything in our powers. In the evening we will announce the fate of the Red programme events. Follow the updates on the website and social networks,” the message says.
Theatre on Podil was to become one of the three main sites for this year’s GogolFest, taking place in Kyiv on September 7-17. Other events of the festival are to be hosted in Dovzhenko centre and at the Expocentre of Ukraine.
Theatre on Podil was to become one of the main venues for the festival. However, even though the construction has been completed, the building hasn’t been commissioned by the city administration yet, so it is not allowed to host events there.
