EX-TEATER: MYTHICAL and a conversation with former inmates
DEAR VISITORS! IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE NEW CONDITIONS FOR VISITING CULTURAL EVENTS, VRT CONDITIONS APPLY TO VISIT THE THEATER.
Mythical is a transdisciplinary performance where archetypal stories of fierce women intertwine with the stories of female prisoners. Mythical or Mitska? The former, obeying the rules of our society, or the latter, listening to her intuition and taking a risk.
The prison can be many things, an abyss or a school, and behind its walls there are beings not so different from us. Whether they are heroes or antiheroes, the shadow of a savage keeps crawling behind them on all fours, and the stigma lurking in the distance.
Mythical is a piece / performance / concert which includes elements of dance and puppetry, challenging its creators to explore the potential of their primary disciplines and install their work into the scenic atrium of the Old Power Station.
The performance is followed by a conversation with former prisoners and social pedagogue Darja Tadić, at 9 p.m.
