The second residency took place at The Les' Kurbas State Centre for Theatre Arts. In addition to daily rehearsals, it included Yevhen Kopiov's "Lightography" workshop.
On November 22 in Kyiv, the performance of five premieres, which were the result of the project, took place. Besides the spectators of the theatrical laboratory of Les' Kurbas Center, the internet-audience saw the performance. The online-broadcast was provided by Open Theater as a partner of the project. Then the Artil program toured to Kharkiv and Lviv.

In March, everybody gathered for a second joint session and a "work in progress" performance. Also the lighting designer Yevhen Kopiov joined a creative process.
As planned, the completed works made part of Zelyonka Fest program on Les' Kurbas Center stage.
It was conceived that all performances prepared within the framework of this pilot project will form a part of the Ukrainian program of Zelyonka Fest in the spring of 2017.
The open call for participation was announced on December 1, 2016. 27 applications took part of the contest and five of them were selected. Five curators joined the project — from Kyiv, Kharkiv and Kherson. The preparation of the future performances took place at their own working spaces, because the project had no financial support and couldn't provide the creative residences.
These five new performances were presented at Les' Kurbas Center the April 8-9 in frames of Zelyonka Fest.
