The outset for this performance is Pepa Hristova’s illustration on The Sworn Virgins in Albania, the last men-woman of Europe. In WoManHood we treat the physical borderline between woman-man.
The project is blending contemporary circus, documentary and sound. Through complex situations, it aims to combine fiction and reality on stage to shift our perspective on identity and gender.
We believe that crossing art forms generates a wider space of creativity and breaks down boundaries between each art form. WoManHood is a modern portrait of women's survival methods in a patriarchal society.
