SERHIY ZHADAN was born in Luhansk Region, today the scene of the crisis in Ukraine and now lives in Kharkiv. He is the most popular writer of the post-independence generation in Ukraine. His poetry spans the disintegration of the Soviet Union, the recent social upheavals and the war on Ukraine’s eastern border. Zhadan is the author of many poetry collections, including the recent “Templars,” and “Life of Maria,” as well as the award-winning novels “Mesopotamia” and “Voroshilovgrad.” His work has been translated into English, German, Polish, Serbian, Croatian, Lithuanian, Byelorussian, Russian and Armenian. Zhadan is also a musician, since 2007 the front man for the rock group “Dogs in Space.” He works with various multimedia projects and has collaborated with Yara Arts Group from La MaMa Experimental Theatre on “Tychyna, Zhadan and the Dogs,” “Hitting Bedrock” and “Underground Dreams.”
