God’s disobedient rib

In Gunilla Thorgren's book God's disobedient rib we follow the author as she reads and analysis the bible with feminist glasses..

The book is an absurd, humours and horrifying exploration through a millennia of women's misogyny - and of persistent female resistance. In this idea-historical journey, from the antiquity to the Renaissance, we gain a feminist historical interpretation. We search for the roles and voices of the women who has been left behind, hidden and silenced. How many of the issues we are fighting today has its foundation in the Bible?

An 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.
