Are TV-shows and newspaper articles causing upset stomach? Is the Internet even worse? Fem TV: a bouquet of feminists for efficient calming of media reflux.
The fourth of Fem TV shows includes parodies of television shows and informative TV segments and astringent critique of socially relevant issues connected with gender and sexuality. The show plays with traditional and contemporary stage expressions. It flows between burlesque, cabaret, revue, performance, video, music acts and improvisational theatre.
Collective Fem TV is composed of different individuals that create together in a non-hierarchical feminist and queer spirit. Collective was formed in 2012 but the members fluctuate, they work sporadically in dependence of available time, manageability of their precarious position and other conditions for work in a given moment. It is a non-professional group of performers with high ambition of politicisation of suppressed topics through their favourite armament – humour.
The event consisted of humorous, politically motivated skits presented as television features. They addressed media representations of women and sexist language.
Protagonists performed a simple but intelligent successful travesty that triggered liberating laughter in the female audience.
