The „Cunning stuns” performance is a part of the "Erotic fantasies of Women” initiative created by Aleksandra Hirszfeld and the TERAZ POLIŻ female theatrical group. This project is composed both of a performative and a research part inspired by a collection of contemporary female sexual fantasies.
This project is my response to the critic after publishing
Istota/The Being - the first erotic graphic novel created entirely by women artists
For several months we collected voices of those who identify themselves as women. We asked not only about dreams connected to sex but also about the meaning of the physical closeness in human life. These subjective stories about sex have the power of freeing people from stereotypes. We studied what usually remains hidden. We wanted to create a space of freedom of speech and a community of women from different ages, with different experience, different social status and education. We wanted to repeat the gesture of Nancy Friday form 1973 when she wrote “ My secret Garden” and create a contemporary map of erotic desire in both theatrical and research language.
Both the performative and the research parts of the project where made thanks to collaboration with sexologists Alicja Długołecka and Agata Loewe.
