‘Vagina monologues’ coming to Banglore stages
Vagina monologues are based on real-life interviews of over 200 women and girls around the world. The organizers are seeing February performance is purely an activism opportunity to stand together to ‘End Violence’ against women and children as it talks about women and girls relationship with body and sexuality through the stories of their vaginas. For the production team, it is also, an opportunity for to shed the shame, silence, and disgust surrounding the word, vagina.
The play is open to everyone – Men, women, and young people over 14 years. Thru humour, intimacy and intensity the performance invites some really important awareness and questions that everybody usually bypasses or sideline as women and men.
