rozdILovI is an attempt to learn how to speak of the essential, to hold a pause, to listen to the silence. Serhiy writes about it. Aleksey and Vlad play about it. Olia draws/strikes through.

And this multidimensionality opens a new — multidisciplinary — way of translation which in addition to words includes audio/visual images. And now, having been translated into other languages, poetry has a chance not to lose the essential — rhythm, intonation, and pauses.

At the subconscious level — at the level of sounds, feelings, and touches — rozdILovI speaks of love and tenderness, war, limbo and death, revival in memories, laugh and silence, and again — love and tenderness.

Between performances rozdILovI continues to exist in a virtual dimension which is filled with new texts, sounds, and images, following the project’s metamorphoses. Like a time machine, the website allows to explore numerous manifestations of rozdILovI.

Here you can watch and listen to records of different seasons, create postcards from text and visual fragments and share them with friends, turning yourselves into co-participants.
