Dramaturg / Assistant Director
A former TV-programmer woman was imprisoned in the house with a marriage clap because of the role of society. In the play where we travel in our protagonist's dreams, we see that the only way to get out of this order is possible with the decision and action of her. At the end of the play, by realizing that patriarchal codes can't be saved by a man, the protagonist must take power as the subject of her own life.
