dress upIn the skin of a Roma.

Interesting little activity we developed with the GABOR GIRLS where guests dress-up in the SKIN OF THE GYPSY (Gabor-Roma style: head to toe). But more than that is important lesson in Gabor etiquette (being Gabor-Roma is not only about the clothing but an attitude, a walk, a presentation, etc)… Our most recent “actor”“Loli” (her baptized gypsy name that was means “red”. Got to have a Gypsy name). “Loli” toured the city with the Gabor girls dressed in the skin of the Roma and experienced the world through their eyes and that includes the stares, comments, closed-door-receptions and confrontations….. It’s an adventure that we call – “the experiment”…. In addition, is experiencing the double discrimination Roma women endure: discrimination OUTSIDE the community for being “gypsy” – and INSIDE for their second-class-status for being female…   

It’s interesting (an new experience), it’s adventurous (never know whats going to happen) - and FUN
