A satirical story about bribery, set in the documentary performance genre. Based on real events and the personal experience of the actors.

Imagine a blessed country where all people are happy, they smile and live in prosperity. Imagine yourself in this dream country. After all, we all strive to live in such a place. But we temporarily live in other ones :)
"Temporary Inconveniences" is a satirical play about the present. Its characters become an ironic depiction of the desire for a happy future.
The performance encourages us to rethink bribery at both the state and domestic levels, to question our own beliefs, to outline shaky principles and limits of responsibility with a subtle irony about everything corrupt.
The play uses performative techniques of the European political and social theatre, interviews, some documentary evidence, videos.
The play was created with the support of the Goethe-Institut Ukraine and the EU Anti-Corruption Initiative in Ukraine (EUACI).
