The Long Center & Fusebox presents Berlin: Zvizdal [Chernobyl – so far so close]
Berlin: Zvizdal [Chernobyl – so far so close] is an immersive, cinematic installation performance written by Bart Baele, Yves Degryse, & Cathy Bilsson. Zvizdal will be presented for a three-day run of five performances.
Occupying a unique space in the performance arts, Belgium-based company Berlin blends film, performance, and installation to reimagine the audience’s experience of live cinema. Berlin: Zvizdal [Chernobyl – so far so close] sources five years of journalistic research to craft the story of Pétro and Nadia, two 80-year-olds who refuse to leave their homestead in the Chernobyl evacuation zone. Integrating documentary film, image, live music, technology, and text, Zvizdal unearths the entanglement of solitude, poverty, hope, and humor at the edge of a disappearing world.
