Dancing Girl – Chasing Mammon

“Keep your mind on the money, keep your eyes on the wall” – Tina Turner

“In Japan, dance is an art form. In Ireland, all the men want to do is talk” – Mirjana Rendulic http://mirjana-rendulic.webs.com/

Broken Promise Land -  Mirjana Rendulic's show tells of her time as an exotic dancer in a dream to reach America. She ended up in Ireland, before returning home.
Broken Promise Land – Mirjana Rendulic’s show tells of her time as an exotic dancer in a dream to reach America. She ended up in Ireland, before returning home.

She dances, dreams behind the eyes and the false smiles,
Chasing Mammon, just passing through to a promised land,
False promises offered to empty hearted men,
With full wallets and little to do at hand,
A dreamer living a nightmare to fulfill a dream
Mammons promises being false in time she would understand.

Along the way, behind the glitz, the clothes the smiles,
Eyes as if they followed her, called her home,
False friends, dodgy businessmen, a broken dream,
Until one lonely man offered her a home,
But the price it was to be her freedom, her very soul,
Dreams being false, they were abandoned, she returned home.

I was down to see “Broken Promise Land” here in “The Fridge”, the new venue of Foundation 13 here in Tulllamore -  Mirjana Rendulic’s show tells of her time as an exotic dancer in a dream to reach America. She ended up in Ireland, before returning home. While chasing the dream, she was conned by Albanian businessmen, colleagues and friends, and yet met some amazing obliging people. Not presenting strip clubs as an exploitation, or herself as a victim, she still shows how empty the lifestyle is.
