Without the demand of pleasing the audience, and through the frustration over all the injustices of the world, grew a performance called l’esprit de l’escalier, a story about self empowerment and strength. The audience meets Super Girl and Dike, both neglected by their environment, but strongly determined to liberate themselves from their oppression. Text: Nedergård and Gråhn, with elements from popular culture.
Sannah Nedergård and Minni Gråhn graduated as actors from the Helsinki Theatre Academy in spring 2018. Their artistic collaboration consisted of experimenting with, for them, new ways of expressing themselves on stage and by working through a feminist theory. Lidia Bäck and Sonja Ahlfors has functioned as mentors for this exam project.
