"I became feminist after reading a seminal study on feminist reading of Ancient Drama by Froma Zeitlin in 1986. Since then my writing about the theatre, my theatre writing and my activim are closely related. Recently I had a chance to create the first group for the shadow theatre (Greek Karadjozis type) in Slovenia, and wrote texts for several performances (the first being about a famous Greek singer, resistant and lesbian Sotiria Belou), the new performative context allowed me to explore a new feminist space and notions."
