MAJKA

Where women here in the West emancipated themselves from the kitchen sink, women in Eastern Europe worked very hard for the country. And all of that in high heels! This evening's new FRESH edition Majka by Sandra Kramerová is all about Eastern Bloc feminism.

The performance Majka is about an alien girl who learns female behavior from commercials, radio, TV broadcasts and socialist Czechoslovak propaganda. As these images are absorbed into Majka's childlike gaze, she learns to understand female behavior by imitating it. Majka's appearance changes with her inner self, but something is not right. In this choreography, objects, images and costumes take on new meaning, innocence turns into something dark and we see a struggle between different identities: culture, ethnicity, gender and personality.

The FRESH evening will be introduced with a spoken word performance by Ioana Tudor (theatermaker, activist and artistic director of Theater de Generator) addressing the struggle between tradition and progress, emancipation and feminism of Eastern Bloc women (in the West).

After the performance, we will speak with various Rotterdam women from the Eastern Bloc, with speakers Yoana Buzova (Bulgarian artist and teacher), Dajana Duka (board member BIJ1 Rotterdam, social worker and activist originally from Bosnia), Alice Strete (Romanian media artist, researcher and food enthusiast) and Sandra Kramerová. What is life like as a woman between Eastern European and Western European culture? They enter into a conversation with theater maker Ioana Tudor.

The intro and the after talk are partly in Dutch.
