WHO KILLED JANIS JOPLIN?
The American rock and blues musician Janis Joplin belongs to the generation that shook up the norms and traditional role models of the Western world in the 1960s. It was the time of the civil rights movement, demands for democratic values and rights for all and revolt against a political establishment that was hardly willing to change, but certainly willing to wage war. Pop history includes Joplin, who died in 1970 at 27, like Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison, in the “live fast, love hard, die young” generation: mythologised by her early death and immortalised in her music. End of story?
Sonja Petrović’s production creates a link between the myth and its starting point. With Joplin’s music, she celebrates the party of her life and at the same time tells the story of the woman behind the legend: the story of someone who did not follow the prevailing norm.
