PERFORMANCE

Five young actresses, using a variety of means of expression, compose an impressive scenic mosaic in which they freely interpret well-known Shakespearian characters such as Julius, Desdemona, Katarina, Ophelia and Lady Macbeth. At the same time, they draw attention to themes related to women and femininity through stage images. Femininity is considered something mysterious and incomprehensible. If we want to describe it verbally it is not possible, its words lose its vibration, strength and depth. It's something supernatural. It is daunting when we try to express something that words do not exist for. That's why we use music, dance and fine arts to do this.
