Simona Semenič: us, witches

Simona Semenič wraps up her trilogy of verbal solo performances – i, victim (2007) and the second time (2014) – with a collective study of the feminine. She is interested in an open working process, questioning patriarchy and its impact on the individual and collective imperative of “the second sex”, while searching for and establishing mechanisms for transcending such (Slovenian) social determinism. The performance itself will be rhythmically introduced by five workshops, in which the participants will acquaint themselves with red tents, herbalism, feminist theory, shakti dance and the power of one’s own voice.
