What happens when violence against the body causes loss. As in the intimate history of women, in which their position of the non-existent manifests. This is why women in this (social) imaginary are silent and give their body, so that power, meaning, the life of another might be inscribed in it, as though they themselves are inscribed in the position of the non-existent and the invisible. What happens when your body is no longer yours? As non-existent in and of itself, as a state when it belongs to someone or something else (to some other meaning). The development of the body is endangered, as movement and contact with the outside world is prohibited. What can the uneasiness of restraint cause? The body becomes the property of someone else. Is there an alternative – a resistance to this condition? Girls use their bodies in several phases for the safe surroundings of their stay: a body that does not dwell, a body that emerges, a body that grows, and a body that expands and takes up the space that belongs to it.

According to the government regulations, participation in cultural events is allowed to persons with the certificate that states: a negative SARS-CoV-2 test result no older than 48 hours (HAG) or 72 hours (PCR), full vaccination or full recovery from Covid-19. The organizer is obliged to check whether the visitors and performers meet the PCT condition.

The condition does not apply to end users who have not yet turned 18 and attend the event with their parents or legal guardians. Recommendations regarding interpersonal distance, proper mask wearing, hand hygiene, and cough hygiene should be followed.
