         "VIVA LA VULVA!" is a choreographic poem in which six women give voice, in reverse chronological order, to the stages their bodies go through throughout their lives. The lyrics speak plainly about the "shameful" things that happen in our bodies and present them as a normality to be celebrated. Beyond their subversive sincerity, Marius Aldea's lyrics can be seen as a libretto for Mihai Dobre's music. The sound universe of the performance, the bodies of the six actresses and their movements synchronize and complement each other with the set-installation, created by Andreea Săndulescu.

         "VIVA LA VULVA!" is a show with a subject still uncomfortable for many people. My aim is to present things as they are, but in a plastic, expressive, dynamic way. The bet is to "dress" the frankness of menstruation, birth, menopause in glitter. We all love kitsch...
