Bakice / Grannies
By Kolektiv Igralke and Tjaša Črnigoj (Croatia / Slovenia)
Who defines the value of a human life? Sensitively and dramaturgically precise, Kolektiv Igralke and Tjaša Črnigoj give a voice to those who are often not heard.

In their documentary performance “Bakice / Grannies”, Kolektiv Igralke and Tjaša Črnigoj focus on the demographic group in Croatia most affected by poverty: women over the age of 65. The four performers talk about security, (in)equality, inclusion and dignity, about work, ageing and the female precariat. The stories of the four “Grannies” blend in with the biographies of their own grandmothers and their personal future prospects, almost casually demonstrating that these are global stories that have to be told.
