«What is the truth? What do I see now, or what will I see three weeks later? Which one is real?»

Based on Olga Shilaeva’s play «28 days»
TRAGEDY OF THE MENSTRUAL CYCLE
28

«What is the truth? What do I see now, or what will I see three weeks later? Which one is real?»

Every woman has these thoughts every month. So let’s finally talk about the subject we were taught to be quiet about. Oratorio for choir, heroine, and male voice in the tradition of Greek tragedy, discourse on the connection of women with nature, society, men, and the cosmic circle.

A young woman confronts her biology, abusive partner, and patriarchal society. She realizes the endless complexity of her nature and the tragedy of a discriminatory world. Yet, she does it through self-compassion and empathy towards everything surrounding her.

Principles
