Briefly about the Franz Kafka Lviv Theatre

The theatre group “Experiment” in 2009 founded an avant-garde theater in Lviv, named after the writer Franz Kafka. The theater was headed by German Goshkador. The purpose of the collective was to popularize the latest theatrical forms in Ukraine.

Actors conduct bold experiments, and improvisations on the stage, and use original technical means. There is a performance school at the theater.

In 2019, the troupe began to shoot the Harms Show YouTube show based on the works of absurdists.

In 2022, after the start of a full-scale invasion, the theater organized a charity event # PlayForUA. Its goal is to raise funds in support of the Armed Forces through charity performances and concerts throughout Ukraine.
