Pretty Lisa

Pretty Lisa" is a theatre project whose aim is to voice out loud the horrific situations victims of such abuse go through. The work has been devised and inspired by stories narrated by women who have survived or are in the process of surviving these tragic experiences.

This bilingual performance intends to challenge stereotypes that have been generated around this theme in the hope that it will encourage deeper awareness towards what constitutes domestic violence and to strengthen the hope for a way out for those who end up victims of such abuse.

Sharon Bezzina, Magda Van Kuilenburg and Daniela Delia will be interpreting the characters of three women with diverse experiences of domestic violence. Their ensemble piece of theatre will retell these dangerous tribulations through powerful physical imagery accompanied by their downright confessions.

Directed by Marcelle Teuma
