DESCRIPTION OF THE PERFORMANCE:
"Akty" is a performance based on true stories of people who experienced domestic violence. It is the artist's response to the letters she read and talks she had with abused people. She also drew inspiration from artistic workshops in centres which help such people, as then she could learn about their emotionality, sensitivity and strength. She does not want to voice her opinion, but only - through her actions - let other people speak, people who are stripped off their voices and are unable to shout. It is a loop, powerlessness, silence, fragmented texts, vanishing, exits, images and more acts.
