»She was a knife cutting through everything.«
Ann Snitow

In 1970, at the age of 25, Shulamith Firestone published "The Dialectic of Sex: The Case for Feminist Revolution," which is still considered a fundamental feminist work today. Her radical theses on the connection between women's liberation and sexual revolution had been presented frequently up to that point, and with them she now became a best-selling author. In her second and last book, "Airless Spaces" (1998), Firestone describes what she herself calls a whole cabinet of "losers," lonely representatives of the state of "social failure."

Inspired by Firestone's biography and these portraits written with "grim laconicity," choreographer and dancer Zufit Simon's solo traces the effects that political and private conflicts can have on female physicality. Economic and psychological-private oppression are questioned and translated into the movement language of dance.
