Street performance “Don’t stay silent”
Writing: Fjolla Hajrizaj
Women, girls, men, young children gathered once again by a FemArt activity.
Girls raise their voices! They have decided not to keep silent.
Lying on the ground and covered with a black curtain on the City Square of Pristina, 6 girls
gave an awereness message.
Daniela Markaj, Diana Markaj, Halime Bici, Qëndresa Kajtazi, Genta Ramadani and Xheraldina Krasniqi for the second time performed ” Don’t stay silent “.
The mesh mirrored the isolation and their many movements and often useless efforts to give
an end to the silence that more than anything is a cultural and lack of social awareness.
There are calls to break silence by loudly giving messages like:
You can not touch my body without my permission! Harassment is punished by law! I’m not a sex object etc.
In the circle that people had created to see the performance, applause was prevalent.
