One year ago, young Ukrainian director Sashko Brama was searching for a new project. That is when he started visiting residents of a geriatric home in Lviv, already knowing that he wanted to make art out of his experiences with them. Sashko brought cake, listened to the elderly, played games with them and was immediately involved with their stories and fates. With some funding of Lviv City Council Sashko, other professional artists and volunteers were able to realise a play with the name Fall on Pluto
The purpose of the play is to tell the stories of the people housed in the nursing home. In order to create the play the members of the initiative listened, talked to and sympathised with 100 of the 350 people living in Lviv Geriatric
. They created the characters of the play as realistic as possible: they shaped masks after the faces of the elderly, they wear authentic clothes on stage and they included audio devices in their masks, so the audience can hear the original voice and story of the role model. Still they give the puppets they are using to impersonate the characters there own personal touch. The observations, interpretations and emotions of the artists were included in the realisation.
