Rejoicing At Her Wondrous Vulva the Young Woman Applauded Herself

A celebratory exploration of female sexuality

From the team that made the 'breathtakingly beautiful' (ViewsFromTheGods) My World Has Exploded A Little Bit.

This event is part of the FiRST BiTES season
  • Wed 21 Feb – Fri 23 Feb, 7:45pm

Venue: Upstairs

Please note that, regrettably, the upstairs theatre is not currently accessible for wheelchair users.

Join us on an epic journey of self-discovery through pleasure, shame, pride, fury and jubilation as we struggle to break free of the deeply internalised male gaze and unleash our glorious, feral appetites. Featuring unabashedly intimate stories, comic dialogues between Brain and Clitoris, and when words start to feel like a cage, dance.
