Dream Bridge

Selected Poems

In this collection, Oleh Lysheha creates worlds in which horses drawn on Paleolithic caves speak their truths and the glance of a swan can transform a lost soul. Each poem leads us down an invisible path that keeps shifting, transforming us and our ideas of poetry, together with the story. In a concluding essay, artistic director Virlana Tkacz relates the story of the translations collected in this volume and the productions she staged with them at La MaMa Experimental Theatre in New York.
