Koktebel Jazz Weekend Pre-Party in Kharkiv

Art-Picnic goes on in Feldman Ecopark. This weekend it presents completely new program: Ukrainian martial arts, Kaia-yoga, theatrical performances and lots of jazz. All these events are open, and anyone can attend and even become a part of them.

The second Art-Picnic presents a summer musical gift – the hot Koktebel jazz weekend festival pre-party. On Saturday and Sunday from 06.30 p.m. until the late night, the visitors can enjoy the music of KRUT, SEMMAR, Nastia Znykaie, Oleksandr Movchan, Ievshan Zillia, Fever and Pavlo Rodenko Kwartet.

Art-Picnic also presents a theatrical master class on expanding attention and unexpected poetry by Maria Koreneva, director of the C: NTACT project in Ukraine and actress of play theater.

For those, who like sports, there will be special master-classes on Ukrainian martial arts and yoga lessons from the Ukrainian Yoga Federation. Instructors will present a useful set of exercises for the spine.

Children also can find something to their taste, for example, test drive of runners-bike (it’s a bicycle without pedals). The runners-bike develops attention, coordination, agility, responsibility for one’s actions, teaches self-reliance and confidence in their abilities.

This weekend is full of cinema, theater, literature, arts, sports, good deeds, fairs and festivals. The detailed program is available here.
