About the performance:

In her poetic-musical performance Volha Hapeyeva tries to understand the very intimate process of poetry creation and how it co-exists with our other everyday-life routine activities. The poet wants to question the gender-stereotypical roles which very often create obstacles for creativity and the possibility to be accepted by the society, and she wonders whether the people will hear her poetry on the background of household chores.
