For its latest project the Esch based collective Independent Little Lies takes the audience on an unusual journey, not just a simple walk but a collective cry for protest. Footnotes is a new take on the "hero's journey", of a woman who sets out to explore the changes in paradigm and patriarchy that are currently shaking society's inherited values. More than just a journey through the feminist movements, this piece explores our questions, research, and sense of responsibility as women in a world where the battle for equality is not yet won. With a hard look at our own privilege, we deconstruct our doubts and ideas about the boxes we live in, whether they be visible or invisible, impossible to bear or deceptively comfortable.
