God’s disobedient rib

In the book God’s disobedient rib we follow Gunilla Thorgren as she read the Bible with feminist glasses.

It is an absurd, humours and horrifying exploration through the millennia of women's hatred and oppression - and of persistent resistance. Its an idea-historical journey from antiquity to Martin Luther where we get a feminist historical interpretation. We will search for the role and voices of the women who previously has been downgraded or hidden. How much of the issues we are struggling with today originate in the Bible?

A large ensemble of circus artists and actors portrays the drama through words, acrobatics and music. They challenge the law of gravity and physical as well as mental boundaries in true Circus Cirkör spirit.

God’s disobedient rib is a co-production with Cirkus Cirkör, the Royal Dramatic Theatre and Malmö City Theatre.
