Maja Pelević:

The last little girls

 

Translated by Krisztina Orovec

 

Today, more than ever, we live in a system that encompasses all aspects of human existence: behavior, desires, love, hope, and manages to profit from it all. In such a social order, it is no wonder to see that the process of becoming a commodity is becoming more and more pronounced in all areas of life, and that birth itself is no exception. The joy of possession encompasses even the deepest biological and emotional levels such as motherhood.

After all, this is exactly what defined the woman at all times and what was expected of her. A woman herself has no value today unless she has the social recognition that mothers deserve. A childless woman is worthless, so she will be able to do everything to fulfill her role as a mother. And this is an ideal starting point for turning elemental desire into a commodity. A child is the same raw material as anything else you can take possession of. Where the womb has become a factory and the baby a gorgeously packaged expensive product, that’s where our story begins.

(Maja Pelević)

"The play has a dialogue with its audience, constantly highlighting the scorching poetry of Maja Pelević, who sings about the fight with the dragon, which, if we ignore it, engulfs us. (...)

Irena Popović composes chamber opera through a mix of genres, ranging from baroque to pop. Music conveys to us the destructive nature of a world that we ourselves have created and whose reflection we refuse to see. "(Nataša Gvozdenović - Vreme)

"At first, we're faced with a rather tough, dense, almost inexplicably complex and serious subject. But director Kokan Mladenović and author and dramaturge Maja Pelević pay careful attention to get a seemingly lightweight texture and promisingly colorful packaging." (Tölli Szofia - kulter.hu)
