all about you and ovalhouse present:
rejoicing at her wondrous vulva the young woman applauded herself
a celebration of female desire, a provocation, and an invitation.
Why would a confident, 21st century woman feel inadequate when talking to her partner about sex? Join us on an epic journey of self-discovery through the garden of her sexuality to find out. Featuring really helpful ideas planted during adolescence, such as: 'Only Boys Masturbate', 'You Are A Sex Object', and 'Female Genitals are Gross'. This is a story of self-love, encompassing shame, pride, fury and liberation. Revealed is the hidden battle between Brain and Clitoris; Appetite and Ego; shame-free sensuality and the desperate need to be ‘normal’, which everyone will recognise, regardless of gender.
Combining storytelling, dance and comedy, Rejoicing at Her Wondrous Vulva The Young Woman Applauded Herself is entertaining as it is searingly honest. Celebrate with us, laugh with us, reassess your own experiences and join a conversation that desperately needs to be had.
Rejoicing at Her Wondrous Vulva The Young Woman Applauded Herself is from the team who made the 'sublime'* My World Has Exploded A Little Bit, is directed by Donnacadh O'Briain, Olivier Award winner for Rotterdam, and has movement direction by Liz Ranken, a founding member of DV8. It is currently being adapted for TV by Killing Eve producers Sid Gentle.
