Imagine I'm worth...

Performance

The year is 2019.

We look back on a long history of men.

And where have women been?

 

The year is 2019.

We are re-writing our history.

We are writing the present, we are shaping the future.

We, two artists from different countries and cultural backgrounds met and spent months reflecting our own roles as women and (concerned) world citizens. From our many conversations we have developed a dialogue - performance.

 

We use this moment of new beginnings, this Instant before the world, to envision a future where equality is a matter of fact.

Based on our deeply personal thoughts, we seek to imagine and address fundamentally human needs. We invite the audience to join in and experience this new state of equality.
