How does history affect our relationships, memories and family ties? The outside world is raging around the three generations of the Kos family. Three generations of daughters getting married, quarrels, love, hate and trying to keep up the pace with the ongoing geo-political changes. This is the story about the independent and brave women striving for a better life and struggling against the patriarchy in their own ways. They are participants of the same story, which they all remember so differently.
The ivy growing out from the house in Zagreb for decades is what holds the family together.
How do you remember Yugoslavia? How do you remember Sweden? How do you remember? Can a personal story be turned into a collective act of remembering?
3 winters is a unique experience, bigger than a stage performance. The audience is guided through three interactive exhibitions where the play takes place – three reflections on the history of Croatia – the entry of communism in 1945, the fall of Yugoslavia in 1991 and Croatia joining the EU in 2011. How has the past shaped us, no matter where we grew up and lived our lives?
The award-winning play is written by Tena Štivičić and had its world premiere in London in 2014 to be staged all over Europe in the following years. This is the Swedish premiere of the play.
