Witches of Fire | Widianne X, Deria Rumina Yenidogan, Dina Matskevich
The Witches of Fire have the force of their ancestors in their blood. They grew up thousands of miles apart, as daughters to Russian moms and Middle Eastern dads.
Destiny brought them together in Malmö where they connected through their common ancestry and magic. Growing out of their internalized misogyny and racism, they discover their strength and capability of enchantment. For them, witchcraft serves as a tool for self-exploration and self-love. As a tool for liberating their sexuality. As a tool for empowering themselves in a world that teaches them to do the opposite. And as a tool for controlling the surroundings, they live in.The Witches unite in a ceremony of fire; fire symbolizing anger and sexuality, beginnings and endings. You are invited to take part in this intimate, intensive, and enchanting night.
