Abolirea familiei / The Abolition of the Family

Theatre

With German and English surtitles / Moldavian Romanian / Romani / Russian / 120 Min.

After the fall of the Soviet Union, family structures in the Republic of Moldova were faced with great economic challenges and at the same time were restyled into a traditional Christian asset. Nicoleta Esinencu links these circumstances with the experience of losing her parents, examining the term “family” in the 21st century. On stage storytellers form and reform a chorus like a collective voice, doing away with the myth of the monogamous family and casting an evil eye on private property, blaming not just the patriarchal system, but in the end even capitalism itself.
