In honor of International Women's Day the most emotional show of the Reflektor theatre, Crave, will be taking place on the 8th and 9th of March at the intimate galleria of CC Grad at 19h.
International Women's Day will this year be marked by our most emotional theatre show, Crave. Traditionally, the 8th of March is a day dedicated to women and their economical, political and social accomplishments. Initiated by a political event, it had spread to many countries, but foremost to the states of the former USSR. The inception of honoring 8th of March as International Women's Day has been linked with a whole string of political actions and protests organised by workers of textile and other industries, fighting for improvements in their work environment. One of such protests had been held on March 8th in New York in the year 1857. which has inspired protests throughout America and Europe.
8th of March has been declared International Women's Day in the year 1917. In the West, IWD has been marked between the years 1910 and 1920, only to have forgotten until the 1970s when it has once again been brought up by the now-awakened feminist movement. It was Alexandra Kollontai who urged Lennin to declare 8th of March a national holiday and, since 1965, this day in fact is a holiday in Russia. The UN have, in 1975, which they had declared as International Women's Year, started formally recognising IWD.
Crave is yet another show in the production of the Reflektor theatre which struggles loudly and proudly for women's rights and puts women in the spotlight. The show was created by taking apart and reconstructing the original play, while the authors stand before you and share their own contents: poetic, conffesionate and personal, reffering to Crave but also to other works of Sarah Kane as well as her biography.
Sara Kane, a contemporary English playwright, had passed away following two consecutive attempts of suicide at only 28 years of age. Her plays are a testament to the spiritual emptiness of Man, to the tragedy of empathy in a capitalistic world and the distorted values it forces on us. In her 28 years of life, Sarah had written five plays for which she has been insulted and denied any claim to the Author Hall of Fame, only to be categorised as one of the most important authors at the end of the 20th century.
This year on International Women's Day you'll have an opportunity to see a show about love, but also be the recipient of a brilliant book. The first 25 people, who call and get their tickets through our service, get to nominate someone for whom they want to purchase the tickets and also get a book.
Women should firstly get love and respect, then flowers and chocolates.
Crave, 8th and 9th of March in CC Grad at 19h.
