Counting Sheep ()

Produced by

Hot Feat Productions

Presented by

Lemon Bucket Orkestra

Creators: Mark Marczyk and Marichka Marczyk
Director: Mark Marczyk


Hugh’s Room


May 26th, 2016 – June 5th, 2016


Counting Sheep is a deeply personal retelling of the Maidan revolution in Ukraine – an immersive Ukrainian guerrilla folk opera set to the electrifying sounds of Toronto’s beloved balkan-gypsy-klezmer-party-punk band, the Lemon Bucket Orkestra.

Based on the creators’ first-hand experiences during the 2014 Kyiv protests, Counting Sheep invites you to lose yourself in the events that changed the course of Ukraine’s history forever. Sing, march, protest, dance, eat, help, recoil, fight, laugh, cry – this is immersive theatre at its most gripping. Sung in traditional Ukrainian polyphony, Counting Sheep is a visceral exploration into the politics of revolution, beating with the heart of a people yearning for a better tomorrow.
