Zarah Bracht / Productiehuis Theater Rotterdam - I'd rather die

You have a choice: do you surrender to the other or do you choose yourself? And what if the latter means jumping into an abyss? What if you're so used to adapting that a choice for yourself hurts the most? The performance I'd rather die, which can be seen in Frascati, examines what happens when women break free from expectations and what they need for this.

I'd rather die

Inspired by the well-known end scene from the cult film Thelma & Louise , Zarah Bracht reflects on resistance taken to extremes in this violent, grotesque and powerful performance. “The two friends, Thelma and Louise, get caught between the abyss and police officers. They decide not to surrender but to continue, and they drive into the abyss with full abandon: an absolute resistance against a system that was not designed for them.”

Zarah Bracht's previous performance Children of Happyland (2021) showed how avoidance and the desire for harmony lead to an unbearable state of violence against yourself. I'd rather die builds on this research and focuses on resistance and confrontation. How do you raise a middle finger to the system? And is that enough? What power is there in sharing fantasies of violence against the patriarchy?

After Wholesale Destruction, Being wrong and how to admit it (BNG Theater Prize 2021 nomination) and Children of Happyland, I'd rather be director Zarah Bracht's fourth performance under the wings of Production House Theater Rotterdam.
