The “Shaving Patriarchy” performance took place on Albania’s Independence Day. The performance was also given to Hamam in Prizren. Video and performance were carried out as a revolt against the public expression of patriarchal behavior. By connecting the men’s beard with honor, loyalty, and strength, people believe that the longer the beard, the better a person, a man.
