Meet Mark Tyulpanov and others
October 27, 2017

“The story of Mark Lvovoch Tyulpanov was born in the project Arena: for one of the working meetings we were asked to present creative products about peace initiatives. Since this task was entrusted to me by our group, I decided to talk to all Ukrainian participants of the ARENA. My colleagues, who have been dealing with problems of refugees and internally displaced persons for many years, told me several stories, for example about a man who still misses his garden, or about two brothers who have taken different sides in the Ukrainian conflict. From all those stories, I have picked one that describes our situation more comprehensively, therefore Mark Tyulpanov is a collective character.” – said Dana Kavelina, one of the Ukrainian participants of the project ARENA: Community Theatre and Public Art.

Currently Dana is in Vanadzor, Armenia, where she continues her work on making an animated film based on her story.
