“Snow White” is a performance by the prominent performance author Gintarė Minelgaitė (Dr. GoraParasit). Based on the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale, she offers a reflection on current global issues. The artist asserts that Hollywood interpretations of Snow White have significantly distorted the story, resulting in cultural insensitivity. Minelgaitė has rewritten it, constructing an ever-expanding array of variations within the posthumanist world. The plot is enriched by themes such as the climate crisis and iceberg ecology, refugees and migration, racial discrimination and gender dynamics. The relationships between Snow White and the characters she interacts with are explored through the lenses of power dynamics, gender studies and societal constraints imposed upon individuals. By harnessing today’s technological advancements in theatre, along with a glitchy, hyperlink-and-advertisement-ridden video game aesthetic, the artist constructs a world plagued by the injustices of the 21st century. Through this creative lens, she implores us to take action before it’s too late – an allegory that prompts viewers to reflect on humanity’s shortsightedness and the profound impact our choices have on the environment. It also challenges us to reconsider traditional gender roles, confront our fears and drive positive change.

Performed by the actors of the National Kaunas drama Theatre. The role of Gaia Steel is played by Susana AbdulMajid.
