The Bunny Girl

The Bunny Girl speaks about woman´s purity and loss of identity. It depicts escaping and drowning into dreams, and fantasies that become invincible if one can´t let them go. Saara Turunen´s powerful play progresses in a ferocious stream-of-consciousness, blending levels of reality into a color-saturated fresco. The pressures women face are given stinging, concrete form in a genuinely theatrical way. – –
