ShakespeareOFF / PERFORMANCE / 30MIN / 15+

A meeting of Shakespearean protagonists, a meeting of women, a meeting in the name of emancipation. Portia, Cordelia and Juliet meet at Ophelia’s funeral. They meet to show each other mutual support but they differ in their experiences, their attitude to Ophelia, to reality, to emotions… The meeting, which takes place in tragic circumstances, but with the intention of serving the common good, reveals the internal polarisation of attitudes in the group of women, and also the tendency to judge and grade experiences (irrespective of gender). The protagonists provoke the male and female audience members to take on the role of judges.
