It was inspired by the life story of the fascinating American adventurer Amelia Earhart, a powerful and most unconventional woman who flew across the Atlantic as the first female aviator.

The first repeat performance, on Saturday, 5 October at 20.00 will be followed by a post-show talk, hosted by Simona Hamer, a dramaturg and playwright, as part of the Social and Sociable programme platform. In October, you can see Amelia E. also on 26.

Amelia Earhart departed from the norms of her time considerably. She engaged in everything that was unusual or even unacceptable for women at the time. She was a woman who got a taste of fame, but experienced also hunger and contempt, a woman who dared to fly high, literally and figuratively speaking. She was a woman who, despite a common belief held a century ago, publicly claimed that women are just as brave as men. She was a woman who violated taboos and smashed patriarchal shields.
