Perhaps the most lasting impression in the festival, however, was left by Viktoriia Vitrenko's solo performance "Limbo". Not only because the Ukrainian pianist, singer and performer combined several song cycles into a complete work of art. The intense performance also included a video showing Maria Kolesnikova at one of the demonstrations in Minsk. She and Vitrenko know each other well; she dedicated this moving evening to her. Towards the end, she can hardly hold back her tears. Kolesnikova's spirit is present here every minute. Nobody knows at the moment how she is doing in prison. But she is not forgotten.
