Performing gender in times of conflict

Belarusian and Danish theater professionals came together with Belarusian women to make the documentary theater performance “Performing Gender in Times of Conflict” about the Belarusian women’s personal stories and their role in the protests that followed the controversial presidential election in Belarus in 2020.

The peacefully protesting women in white and red have become a symbol of resistance in Belarus. Script and performance were developed in 2020, but due to Covid-19 and the sociopolitical situation in Belarus, the project could not be implemented as a theatre performance as planned.

Instead, the project will continue in alternative formats in 2022, as both a sound performance and as a visual video artwork and possibly also as a theatre performance in Denmark.
