About the performance
Jackie is the deconstruction of one of the greatest myths of the western society, the one about Jackie Kennedy Onassis. The Nobel Prize recipient Elfriede Jelinek wrote Jackie as the fourth part of her Drama of the Princesses, where she – as parallel to Shakespeare's cycle about the kings – brings to life the role of a woman through famous female personalities, from Snow White to Lady Diane.
Jackie appears in three dimensions: as a real citizen Jaqueline Bouvier, as a fashion icon of the photographers, and as the media Jackie. In this wayshe becomes a multiple personality abandoning one role for the other without ever finding her true identity.
The performance was financially supported by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Slovenia; the Municipality of Ljubljana, Department of Culture; and the City of Zagreb, City Department of Culture.
