I DON'T THINK I'LL STAY HERE LONG (SEPTEMBER 14 - OCTOBER 30)

‘I don’t think I’ll stay here long’ tells the stories of women who fled Ukraine due to the Russian
invasion in February 2022, and are currently hosted by families across the Netherlands. In a
three-channel installation, actress Ewa (Yarasolva Krutova) performs a series of monologues on
behalf of these women, detailing their efforts to find common ground and learn how to live
alongside strangers in spite of their cultural differences. The project brings together complex
narratives about loneliness and togetherness; kindness and cultural clich├ęs; humour and
sorrow; but also the hope to call a place home again.


‘I don’t think I’ll stay here long’ is a collaboration between actress and performance artist Ewa
(Yaroslava Krutova) who arrived in the Netherlands from Ukraine in March 2022, and lens-
based artist Jana Romanova who came to the Netherlands from Russia in 2019.
The project is produced and presented at Outsiderland, with informational support from
FOTODOK.
