Ponyclub, no Trojan women

Last night I had an entertaining evening in AINSI. Im glad my schedule allowed me go to the mime tragedy 'Ponyclub, no Trojan Women' (Ponyclub, geen Trojaanse vrouwen) by Boogaerdt / Vanderschoot.

"If you want something said, ask a man; if you want something done, ask a woman" quote by Margaret Thatcher

The Ponyclub is an association of obscure, but well-dressed women wounded in the middle of a burning pile of rubble. In the distance, they make us think of the women of Troy, as described by Euripides, mourned in total disarray among the smoldering ruins of their devastated city. But the women of the Pony club are different, they live now, more than 2000 years later. Instead of succumbing to total despair, these women take matters into their own hands. No men or gods to whom they feel surrendered. No, they decide on their own future and destiny.

'Ponyclub, no Trojan women' is a amusing and recognizable contemporary mime tragedy with a feminine noise against and self-mocking jokes or excuses. Check their tour schedule:

Especially for 'Ponyclub, no Trojan women' Boogaerdt / Van der Schoot asked a number of contemporary opinion makers (including Hedy d'Ancona, Marlies Dekkers, Laura van Dolron and Fleur Jurgens) to write pamphlets about their vision of the power of women in the today's world.
