Alex Borovenskiy and Anabell Ramires run a theater in Kyiv, Ukraine. It’s called ProEnglish Theatre, and was used as a bomb shelter during World War II. When Russia invaded Ukraine, Alex and Anabell decided to leave their apartment and go to the theater, where they hoped they might be safe. Then a neighbor showed up and asked if she could join them. “This is how it all started. People started coming and coming and coming.”

You can watch The Book of Sirens on ProEnglish Theatre’s Facebook page.
