TIRED!

A socially engaged performance on psychological violence against women

November 25th, 3pm, Trg Republike

 

This year for 16 Days of Activism against Violence against Women:

-  - We request an amendment to the Criminal Code of the Republic of Serbia which would recognize the criminal act of Stalking

There is an increasing number of stalking cases in Serbia, some of which have unfortunately ended in murder of the victim. Stalking victims have no protection and are left to the mercy of the perpetrators who do not face any criminal sanctions.

Being stalked means living in fear.

 

In cooperation with Deborah Hunt, the art-activist group ACT Women gives us the “Tired!” street performance, directed by Dijana Milošević. The performance, which focuses on psychological violence against women, follows a trans-generational transfer of women’s duties and expectations that result in exhaustion.

Performed by: Ana Imširović-Đorđević, Vesna Bujošević, Zorica Nikolić, Slađana Rackov. Performance inspired by a text written by: Jelene Andjelovski. Technical assistance: Neven Bujošević. Photography: Biljana Rakočević. Video: Aleksandra Nestorov. Organization: Zoe Gudović
