Olga Semyoshkina: “From the very beginning of the war, we stayed in Kyiv, helping civilians and soldiers. They witnessed many atrocities committed by the occupiers on our land. They posted it on social media to draw the world's attention to what is being done to our country. But the shocking footage was immediately blocked. Therefore, in order to convey to the world the truth about what is happening, such an indirect form of presentation was chosen. In which scream, pain and despair are conveyed through images, plastic, body movements, emotions and musical accents”.

In addition, Olga appears in one of the stories of this project called “Breathe”.
