Spring awakening is an intimate story of the challenges that every woman has to face in order to fulfill her hopes and dreams. With a large portion of humor and self-irony our actors overcome all the obstacles they encounter on their way. We are creating a new version of “Bridget Jones” that is not afraid to speak up for her flaws and imperfections, but at the same time she has the power to fight for her rights and privileges. Box, ballet, motorbikes, driving schools, hot-head bosses, fat bodies, plus size clothing, aerobics, sports professors, weddings, wedding dresses and love, lots and lots of love ! Neoliberalism, sexism and lack of information are completely helpless against the persistence, the humor and the constructive self-criticism, and the women’s search for a world without any restrictions and limits. The Intimate Theater was formed in February 2010 in Bitola. So far we have conducted seven independent theater projects, which we have performed in different areas, from October 2013 we have our own theater space in Bitola on the street Stiv Naumov number 35, where we can accommodate an audience of around 60 people. The main objective of the Intimate Theatre is to use texts from modern playwrights, that concern the social problems and that analyze the life of the modern man, with all of his pluses and minuses.
