the second time (drugič)

2014 / 50'

Simona Semenič’s first solo theatre piece entitled I, Victim. premiered in the context of the 13th City of Women Festival in 2007. The autobiographical text and performance that Simona directed and performed herself dealt with her close encounters with the dark forces of one kind and another. She shared her experience with epilepsy and the health system, with genital herpes and the health system and bunch of other things and the health system. The performance the second time is a sequel of her first solo; where the first solo ends, the second begins. Literally. “Let me smoke,” the last line in the performance I, Victim. is the first line in the performance the second time. Simona recounts her recent years, during which she – this way or that – coped with the aggravation of her epilepsy and – what else? – the health system.

Simona intends to perform the third and final part of her trilogy on Tuesday, October 12th 2021 in Klub Gromka in the context of the 27th edition of the City of Women Festival. You are kindly invited then, too! (Simona Semenič)
