Day 1 in the CITY OF WOMEN
Maya Deren, Julia Child and I have arrived in the City of Women – aka paradise. Here in Ljubljana, Slovenia we held a street theatre workshop today for about 20 savvy and sassy Slovene feminists. The list of issues they wanted to create street theatre about was probably the longest list we’ve seen in a while but many of the themes we’ve seen before i.e. apathy, lack of art in education and sustainable foods. The group split into 4 smaller groups to work on smaller pieces of street theatre and for an hour we honed down the performances to 4 concise pieces. Then we hit three bridges square to perform. Here are some photos of KNOW! Knowledge, New Art NOW! BE KIND TO ANIMALS, TRY IT HERE, IMMIGRANT APPLES and WRITE ON MY SHIRT. It’s a great day for activism at City Of Women!
