Performance of GUILT,Y
by BÉZNĂ Theatre in Bucharest, Romania
BÉZNĂ Theatre and Centrul de Teatru Educational Replika presented a performance of GUILT,Y (VINOVAT,-Ă) livestreaming on the commons-based peer produced HowlRound TV network on Wednesday 22 January 2020 at 9 a.m. PST (Vancouver, UTC-8) / 12 p.m. EST (New York, UTC-5) / 5 p.m. GMT (London, UTC-0) / 18:00 CET (Budapest, UTC+1) / 19:00 EET (Bucharest, UTC+2).
Today in Europe: The Reclaiming Capitalism conference is taking place in an expensive hotel in Bucharest. There are people coming home from work, tired, who just want to watch TV and worry about their promotion.
Today, far away: There are people fleeing from climate disasters.
"THAT’S THE BEAUTY OF CAPITALISM. THERE ARE NO LIMITS."
GUILT,Y (VINOVAT,-Ă) is a one-woman show which confronts the climate crisis, the greatest threat to social justice today. The play examines the relationship between the ideology of laissez-faire capitalism, consumerist apathy and the suffering of people from the global south.
Climate change is happening. The Pacific island nations are disappearing underwater. Bangladesh is currently a third underwater. Once arable land is baking in the sun, rivers are drying, horrendous civil wars are erupting all over the world. Although Europe is not yet feeling major changes, millions of people from countries which barely have a carbon footprint are fleeing their homes in order to stay alive. GUILT,Y (VINOVAT,-Ă) asks whose responsibility it is to stop the global crisis and reminds that it is not too late to act.
