12 January Theatre/Musical Pretty Women, Käfigturm
Two singer-actresses evoke key life experiences with traditional options of role and gender that affect a woman’s self-understanding. The first act deals with girlhood and love, the second turns to the emotional implications of married life and motherhood. In the course of these developments the sudden, unexpected appearances of fairy tale figures offers surprising insights. In dialogues mixed with 20th century songs, “Pretty Women” gives a theatrical voice to the everyday life of women in our times. For details see http://lesartssceniques.ch/en/new-shows/pretty-women/ . CHF 29 – 39.
