Part of the „Urban Fables Trilogy”, written by Catalan author Pau Miró, „Giraffes” reflects the strong desire of every ordinary woman to be unconventional and free. The play is centered around an apparently mundane object, but nonetheless one that has revolutionized the life of every woman in the past century: the washing machine. Transposed to 1968 Romania, „Giraffes” is a family play that tackles the theme of the childless couple and subjects as feminism, traditional values, free will and love. Within a conceptual and suggestive set design, signed by Dragoș Buhagiar, Radu Afrim’s tragicomic staging shows the hidden wilderness and poetics of the woman’s soul and the fragility of the machismo system with defying and ironic humor.
