***** Broadway Baby ***** Ed Fest Magazine ***** British Theatre Guide **** Toronto Star

The award-winning (Scotsman Fringe First, Amnesty International Freedom of Expression) theatrical sensation comes to London in a brand new version from the directors of the Belarus Free Theatre.

Based on Mark and Marichka Marczyks' first hand experiences during the 2014 Kiev Uprising, Counting Sheep invites you to lose yourself in the events that changed the course of Ukrainian history forever. Sing, march, protest, dance, eat, help, recoil, fight, laugh, cry. With folk singing, found footage and revolutionary staging this ‘Guerrilla Folk Opera' is an electrifying exploration of human resilience.

This production is a unique artistic collaboration between Mark and Marichka Marczyk, whose lives changed forever while fighting for freedom and love in Maidan Square, and Natalia Kaliada and Nicolai Khalezin, founders of Belarus Free Theatre, whose struggles with the repressive dictatorship in Belarus are well documented. This joint theatrical statement from people who went through real life and death situations makes for an explosive stage experience.

It is a place to be lost, a place to escape. The Vaults is an excellent movie that you have been swallowed by.

The space features 30,000 sqft of accessible, flexible and delectable Victorian brickwork fused with abandoned 70s office space.

The Vaults is a multi-disciplinary arts space located in London, in the underground world of Waterloo station.

About The Vault 

The Vaults is London’s home for immersive theatre and alternative arts. Our mission is to collaborate and conspire, embracing artists from all walks of life to come together and inspire others.

Set in a maze of disused railway arches under Waterloo station in London, we encourage those that have a natural affinity to the unusual, the daring and the unknown. We want talented artists from every vocation to mutate their art; to make stuff that is challenging, accessible and imaginative. We are unparalleled, we are unexpected and we are under your feet.

We also seek to prove that sustainability promotes a business, not stifles it, and are always trying to green-up our act. 

We are here to feed your curiosity and open your mind. Let The Vaults’ maze of underground tunnels swallow you whole.
