Ukrainian kids grow up in places like this, and it troubles me.
You would become a clown art fan if you had seen the perfomance of "Clowns without borders Sweden" a few days back in Kyiv. I feel like these guys have the best job ever; not in terms of easiness, but in terms of feedback. Seeing all those kids' smiling faces must feel like bliss, especially considering their current life circumstences - "Clowns" were performing at the biggest childrens hospital in Ukraine and also for temporarily displaced kids in one of the Kyiv theaters. Before Kyiv the artists conducted 15 perfomances in different cities of eastern Ukraine, where military actions are currently taking place. UNICEF Ukraine kindly invited me to shoot Kyiv peromance of the "Clowns" for them.
