Bouquet Kyiv Stage
The International Multidisciplinary Non-Profit and Socially-Oriented Festival of High Art.

Music is the core of Bouquet Kyiv Stage. The Festival accentuates the Ukrainian cultural content as a part of world culture, consolidates art, education and innovative technology into a unified contemporary cultural phenomenon.

The Festival is a gift to the city which familiarizes the general public with the samples of high art. Because art is a universal language of intercultural communication.
Life Goes On! Third Festival of High Art Bouquet Kyiv Stage 2020 will ultimately take place! Time of the festival is already known – August 20–25. The location traditionally is the National Sanctuary "Sophia of Kyiv".
Bouquet Kyiv Stage 2020 will comprise six eventful festival days, with about ten events held each day. So, well, yes, "Life Goes On"! It is the leitmotif of this year's festival which relays our optimism and hope, faith in ourselves and each other; a discreet observation of the time passing, comprehension of the life cycle and its collisions; our readiness to respond to new challenges and dignity in doing this.
What words, musical or book stories can better express the dramatic reality of today?

What thoughts and emotions do they arouse in us?

Despite the fact that everything has come to a standstill during the quarantine – life actually goes on!
On August 20–25, from morning till late at night music and words will be ringing in "Sophia of Kyiv". Performers and their listeners will be flowing into the ancient city. Here masters and their disciples, geniuses of the city and its residents will meet, the sacred space will be filled with happy talks, children's laughter and thankful applause. It will be filled with life. The City of Masters will sound here.
Bouquet Kyiv Stage Festival of High Art was founded in Kyiv in 2018. The first BKS was held on August 11–26 and turned out to be an extremely successful high-profile event. This was confirmed by over 40 events, more than 230 participants from Ukraine and abroad (from 12 countries), 15 Hard Talks with opinion leaders, 25 video installations, over 800 thousand people that got to know about the Festival and dozens of thousands of amazed spectators!
About the Symbol

The symbol of the festival – The Bouquet, a modern megasymbol, was created by a Kyiv painter and philosopher Oleksandr Dubovyk. The symbol of The Bouquet is the painter's gift to the Festival.

The Bouquet is consolidation and composition, holiday and gift making. The Bouquet is a symbol of the diversity of our culture. It is a symbol of the intersection of ways and civilizations, an explosive mixture of intonations, styles, genres and epochs in each work.

Giving the BOUQUET as a gift is a gesture of gratitude to artists connecting Ukraine with the world, the present time – with the past, drawing the longed-for future closer.

And also, a sign of generosity – a compliment to the city we love. The entrance to the Festival events is free.
