National Treasure

November 25, 2023

Hello friends! Today we would like to share with you our impressions of participating in the National Treasure of the Nation Award ceremony, which took place on November 25, 2023 at the Zhovtnevy Palace in Kyiv.

The National Treasure of the Nation Award is a charitable award aimed at supporting those who defend and selflessly work for the protection, preservation and development of Ukraine. It is a prestigious award given to individuals, families, organizations and philanthropists who contribute to the positive image and global prestige of their country and, most importantly, are an example of the struggle for the victory of Ukraine.

Our shadow theatre Verba was invited to the ceremony as a guest and we had the honor to show our performance “War in Ukraine”, which tells about the events that have been taking place in our country since 2014. This performance is our attempt to express our solidarity with the Ukrainian defenders who give their lives for our freedom and independence. Despite all the horrors of war, we also wanted to show the other side, that war is not only about weapons, blood and death, but also about love, faith and hope.

Our performance evoked strong emotions from the audience. We were very touched by this reaction and we thank everyone who supported us and our work. We would also like to thank the organizers of the Treasure of the Nation Award for the opportunity to participate in such an important event and congratulate all the winners who deserve this honor.

We believe that our artistic work can make the world a better place, and we will continue to create for the sake of Ukraine and its future. We are proud to be Ukrainians and we are the treasure of the nation!

Thank you for your attention and Glory to Ukraine!
