As part of the project ”Shadow Pandemic: Hidden Voices”, which addresses the issue of violence against women during the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown, an action was held on women’s Day, March 8, 2024 on one of the intercity trains in Zagreb. The actresses of Zagreb Youth Theatre Anđela Ramljak and Katarina Bistrović Darvaš read parts of the dramatic text “Under the Skirt” by Kristina Kegljen.

Twelve days later, on March 19 promotion of the play ”Activists” and the project ”Shadow Pandemic: Hidden Voices” was held on the train traveling between local areas of Maribor. Actresses of SNG Maribor actively engaged with passengers by handing out flyers about the project and its topic and inviting them to come and see the performance in Maribor in June. They also acted out a short scene from the play – each acted/spoke a short part from their (documentary) part of the play.

„Under the skirt“ by Kristina Kegljen and „The Activists“ by Katja Gorečan are two out of three  winning dramatic texts that will be part of the omnibus “The End of the World in Three Acts” directed by Selma Spahić, whose Zagreb and Maribor premieres are expected on May 17 2024 and June 4 2024 (respectively).
