Call me by my name. Why don’t you call me by my name?
Cute little thingy
PINK PORTAL is a tribute to where we all came from. An informative, funny but evenly emotional performance about the female body. From her first menstruation to her menopause. An all-female cast of women of different ages reflects on the control, criticism, worship and censorship that she has had to endure for centuries.
PINK PORTAL is the next step in the line of activistic performances by choreographer and theatre maker Cecilia Moisio. The performance is designed to break taboos surrounding the female body and sexuality and is a statement about where women find themselves in society anno 2022.
“A powerful ode to the vulva (…) The multidisciplinary style is ingenious and varied, ranging from informative to humorous. (…) The dance (…) is strong and expressive. At the end, the soft extended cry of a newborn baby, is beautiful and moving”

The scenes and texts of PINK PORTAL are informed by the research process that happened not only through the laboratories with women of different ages and backgrounds and conversations about their experiences, but also through a wide and thorough theoretical and historical research. Even though some things you see on stage are ironic or exaggerated for the sake of theatricality, they are based on the true facts. We have collected all the things we learned from PINK PORTAL and now we would like to pass them on to you!
