About

SYNOPSIS

Summer in Ivye chronicles events that took place during one remarkable summer when American choreographer Tamar Rogoff staged a large-scale theater production in a forest outside a remote village in Belarus, working with international actors, musicians and local people. The Soviet Union had recently collapsed, food was scarce, but spirits were high. The tiny dirt road town was turned upside down with audiences and media from every corner of the world - and those involved in the production that summer were forever changed.
