MAJKA (2021)

An alien dance encounter with womanhood

"In the gripping choreography Majka, Sandra Kramerová goes in search of the 'ideal' manifestation of women in 1970s Czechoslovakia. The result is a direct confrontation with universal archetypes."

- Karima Aissaoui, Theaterkrant

An alien girl Majka lands in 1970's Czechoslovakia.

"Amazing how Sandra Kramerová conjures up all those socialist gender roles ★★★★

Her consistent performance in the minimal decor of the solo performance 'Majka' is impressive."
