How does it feel?
How does it feel to live in a body that is mainly defined by others?
How does it feel when you realize there is no possibility at all to sneak through the narrow columns of the cage built by the patriarchal societies’ beliefs?
How does it sound? How does it look like?

“Sie leiden lieber stumm” (“They’d Rather Suffer Silently”) takes the feminist performance art of the 70s as its source material and examines its relevance for the present in the form of a performative music film. The film generates no glimmer of hope, but archives a snapshot of mundane tristesse. The filmed stage becomes the catalyst of a discrepant game between private introspection and the public external perceptions – instrument, voice, body and camera are torn out of their conventions and explored in alternative ways.
