Ten air danger sirens were heard. There was no need to hide in hiding places, but it was necessary to wait in safe places. Because of this, the performance was delayed an hour in Kyiv, but the theaters adapted to such circumstances. If the performance or other event is delayed due to weather hazards, it starts, depending on the order chosen by the theater, an hour or even much later than scheduled.

The residency was organized and all thanks for the valuable experience and time to the Scenography Gallery Галерея Сценографії (Ukraine).
