WoW Program on 26th City of Women Festival

This year’s programme that has been changing on a monthly basis and has unraveled in one of the most tumultuous periods of the past few decades, has taken place for three whole weeks! Albeit without an official opening or huge parties, but with numerous opportunities for encounters in smaller groups. This is precisely why we have addressed the given situation and the many worries we are facing by forming temporary spaces of closeness.

As part of the festival, we presented a WoW program this year that included: International Film Programme Focus Delphine Seyrig that was dedicated to Delphine Seyrig, one of the greatest icons of French and European post-war cinema; The Disobedient Muses film programme, that was focused on the production of the French feminist video collective Les Insoumuses; The Unforgettable illustration street and virtual exhibition with additional programme  based on the newly released book Nepozabne: ženske, ki so premikale meje našega sveta (The Unforgettable: The Women Pushing the Boundaries of Our World); Ljubljana Feminist Bike Tour, an educational three-hour tour around the city that offers a gender perspective on Slovenia’s capital.

WoW Stories
As part of this year’s festival we presented the creative process of making the WoW Stories in the performance Catastrophe Blues.
For several months, the Dublin-based artists Bernie O’Reilly and Maud Hendricks (Outlandish Theatre Platform) have been collaborating with WoW Group from Slovenia. Inspired by Samuel Beckett’s Catastrophe, they have been investigating the relations between oppressors, systems of persecution and precarity throughout a long-distance process. More >>>
