35 MM – CULTURAL CENTRE – ALIENS

Text by Marina Rebhandl

WORK OF THE WOOLGATHERERS

It was in 2005 when Tatiana Bielousova, actress and stage director from Riwne, came to Nyzhnje Selyshche to join the Longo Maï community. The cultural centre, which is located on the main road and next to the music school of the village, was not being used at that time. Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, the huge building had been empty. There was no financing for cultural programmes nor to maintain the building. There were holes in the roof and water was in the building. But on some nights young people from the village would gather, bring their music and dance in the ruins.
