Ukraine and Russia. Drawing 2014

This drawing was made by me in 2014 during a special operation by our troops (remember « we are not there « ? but it turned out to be « we are there ») to peacefully seize the Ukrainian territory of Crimea.

Рисунок был сделан мною в 2014 году в момент спецоперации наших войск (помните « настамнет »? а оказалось что « мытамда ») по мирному захвату Украинской территории Крым.

Short bio.

Tatania Frolova is a Russian director and playwright born in Komsomolsk on Amur (Far East Siberia), a city buit in the 1930’s for the needs of the Soviet military-industrial complex. After studying at the Moscow Conservatory, she returned to her home town where she founded the KNAM in 1985. This miniature theatre, totally independent, is a creative laboratory strongly linked to the population. The small troupe stages non-fiction texts directly inspired by the past and present tragedies experienced by ordinary citizens. Since 2010, the KNAM is regularly invited to perform abroad, notably in France .

In March 2022, under the current suffocating political pressure, the Knam Theatre closed its doors. Tatania Frolova and her closest artistic partners are now seeking political asylum in France.
