The Kyiv City Ballet, under the artistic direction of Ivan Kozlov, announced on June 14, 2022 a U.S. Tour from September 15 to October 25, 2022. The Fall tour is a US premiere and marks the Kyiv City Ballet’s first United States performances ever. READ: New York Times US Tour Press Release.

Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts is honored to be one of the major cultural arts centers across the country that are coming together to open their doors and their hearts to welcome the Kyiv City Ballet, in-residence at the Suffolk Center September 19- 22, 2022. It is very clear this company and their artistry will have great appeal to non-dance and dance audiences alike.

“We are honored to share the beauty of ballet with US audiences, through Ukranian artists” said Ivan Kozlov, Artistic Director. Touring the States for the first time with a range of ballets makes an important global statement. It demonstrates the resilience of the Ukrainian people.”

The day before Ukraine was invaded in February 2022, the Kyiv City Ballet unknowingly took one of the last flights out of Kyiv. The company flew to Paris to begin a long planned tour. They have not returned home. The country of France sheltered them and the company has been performing throughout France, and now Europe, since the invasion began.

Generation Rescue: Sustainable Water for All
An Exhibit featuring the work of Suffolk students 13 and 18 years of age.

ON VIEW: February 3 – March 1, 2022
OPENING Reception:
Thursday, February 3 @ 6:30 PM
FREE & Open to the Public

Sister Cities International aims to promote peace through mutual respect, understanding, and cooperation – one individual, one community at a time. This year’s theme is Generation Rescue: Sustainable Water for All. Climate change has become an undeniably harsh reality in our lives, making the importance of raising awareness and taking action more essential every day. As temperatures rise, water patterns are disrupted, ecosystems are disturbed, cultures are affected, and energy resources are proven to be unsustainable for long-term use. These ongoing changes impact our local and global communities in every aspect, and youth are the key to tackle this global reality.

In line with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, Sister Cities International will adopt climate change as the overarching theme for its Young Artists and Authors Showcase in both 2022 and 2023. For the 2022 competition, SCI is proud to invite all its youth members to create submissions that highlight the importance of climate change and its impact on water resources. The official 2022 Young Artists and Authors Showcase theme is Generation Rescue: Sustainable Water for All.

Suffolk Sister Cities International sponsors an annual Young Artists and Authors Showcase that help foster a sense of global citizenship and goodwill for young students. Winners from this juried exhibit of both artwork and writers will go on to compete with students throughout the country. Suffolk has two Sister Cities: Suffolk County, England and Oderzo, Italy.
