Portraits of women's bodies, with the vulva in the leading role

Pink Portal, as the title suggests, is an ode to the vulva. With a cast of women of different ages and backgrounds, choreographer Cecilia Moisio shatters taboos that surround the female body and female sexuality. Moisio wants everyone to use its name without embarrassment again: VULVA!

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.

is the next step in the line of activistic performances by choreographer and theater 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.

‘They add a feminist dimension with the story of the mother who teaches her daughter that girls should keep their mouths shut. Gradually, you come to feel how deeply criticism can affect a person. The ironic solution of this resilient pair: they stage their own moment of fame, full of glitter, glamour, and gala dresses.’
