Journal d'une femme du Kosovo @ Bozar
The play Le Journal d'une Femme du Kosovo is a collective project that was started by the director, Zenel Laci, and motivated by the need to fulfil a duty of remembrance towards Kosovan Albanians, because we must not give in to the temptation to forget. Theatre must tackle important questions. The representation of barbarous acts or crimes against humanity may also have a cathartic value.

The performance evokes the atrocities committed against women during this time of violence and blood with exemplary dignity. It is, however, above all a story of love and freedom which speaks to the audience through actress Anila Dervishi, who is supported by the musician, Afrim Jahja and by Nimetulla Parlaku's heart-breaking images. This piece mixes sounds of rock guitar, voice recordings, universal declarations, dream-like projections, and love songs which set the theatre alight and bring the actors and the audience together. It is a courageous and healing piece that refuses to accept the atrocities committed against minorities and vulnerable people, beginning with women and children.


The play will be followed by a debate with Sevdije Ahmeti (author of the Journal and Kosovan human rights activist), Jean-Yves Potel* (French author and academic specialising in Central and Eastern Europe), Safet Kryemadhi (political scientist), and the production team including Zenel Laci (director) and Anila Dervishi (actress).
