Motherhood and Artistic Work

An interview by Eszter Petrány for the digital zine

"Raising a child is super productive" | Daphna Horenczyk | nOphelia #2

The series "nOphelia" presents female dancers, performers, creators, and choreographers who have experienced the beauties and struggles of pregnancy, motherhood, and parenting. We are curious about their personal and artistic transformations and their journeys as women, mothers, and artists. Through their stories, we also collect some advice for future mothers, who might deal with similar challenges in regards to their productivity, their bodies, priorities, our society, and the passing of time.
This video has been created in the frame of our digital zine (, in which we walk around the theme of 'femme fragile'. Opposed to Shakespeare's Ophelia – which character became the embodiment of mental fragility and female self-sacrifice – with "nOphelia" we aim to highlight these women's complexity, strength, and sensitivity.

In the second episode, Eszter Petrány interviewed Daphna Horenczyk.
