“I’m afraid that today might not be successful,” says Jana in the performance and brings you into a fragile world where fear is not a sign of weakness, but rather a survival mechanism in the daily life, relationships, at home, at work, on the street. The routine of fear has become part of Jana’s everyday life, but is that how it should be

How safe does a young woman feel as she is growing up? How can the safest space become the most dangerous? What are we speaking out about and what are we remaining silent about? The solo piece by choreographer Jana Jacuka is a personal story of a young woman about the world of the “weaker” sex.
