"Once upon a time, there she was, or maybe wasn't..."
"Begin. G e t d o w n t o i t. Just as you clean the poisoned river. Get down to it, even if you are worried that you will not be successful. Even if you are afraid of a failure, begin anyway, and if you can’t have it otherwise, then fail, dust yourself off and start all over again. If it doesn’t work out again, then so what? Start all over again. It is not the failure that holds you back - this reluctance to start all over again causes stagnation”.
(Clarissa Pinkola Estés,“Women Who Run With the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype“)
The performance of “Princesses" is fairy-tale journey touching upon female archetypes and narrated from the perspective of Little Mermaid, Cinderella and Snow White. Spinning a tale together, story-telling considered to be a medicine to the ailments and problematics of contemporary women, being in search of safe space to be faced with the primary narration.
