BETI BEZPERAKO KOPLAK
- Couplets for an Everlasting Eve -
Direction Ageda Kopla Taldea
St. Agatha's Eve is a deep-rooted Basque tradition in which people walk from house to house, accompanied by improvised verse-makers (bertsolaris), singing verses to the beating of long sticks. Building on this celebration, bertsolari Maialen Lujanbio composes a stark denunciation of gender violence. In verse after verse, she condemns the different manifestations of sexist violence and our inability to combat it.
Based on these couplets, twenty young artists direct a collective-created piece, using different animation techniques.
