2 Women is a feminist contemporary dance performance/show, inspired by the woman’s condition in today’s society but not just in today’s society, is an old problem. We realize that throughout history not much has changed with regard to the status, condition, and the presence of women in positions of power, the way in which we are socially separated in two distinct categories. 2 Women is a show that suggests a perspective on these problems that is both humorous and serious. This show is recommended for everyone. A man can also be a feminist.

*The term feminist is misunderstood especially in Romanian society. I did research before I started to work in the studio and ask people, different people, "what is a feminist?" and I realized that they have a totally wrong perception. Let's say uninformed. So we use some hilarious but very sad answers in our performance precisely to bring this serious problem to the front.
