Vagina Monologues

vagina monologues

The Vagina Monologues returns to Barcelona for six shows, three in English and three in Spanish, in February at the Espai Francesca Bonnemaison, Sant Pere Mes Baix 7.

Written by Eve Ensler, The Vagina Monologues is an episodic play which first premiered in 1996. Put together after Ensler had interviewed 200 women about sex, relationships and gender violence, the monolgues deal with different aspects of the feminine experience, sometimes funny, sometimes heartwrenching, but always completely absorbing. Matters such as menstruation, love, sex, rape, genital mutilation, masturbation and much more besides are spoken about with utter frankness. Of course, the vagina is the star here, the different names it has been given, its function both as an aspect of the body and, perhaps more importantly in a world still a very long way from true sexual equality, as an instrument of female empowerment.

The Vagina Monolgues are here as part of V-Day, or the International Day of the Vagina, which takes place on Febraury 14, and are especially educational for men (in fact I would urge all penis-owners to go along and evolve), hammering away as they do at the wall of ignorance and wilful blindness surrounding female sexuality.

V-Day also brings with it the consciousness-raising One Billion Rising (http://onebillionrising.org/), a campaign centred on violence against women. All the proceeds from the ticket sales of The Vagina Monolgues go to AADAS (Asociación Asistencia Mujeres Agredidas Sexualmente), an association providing assistance to women who have been sexually abused, and is another reason to go along and give your support.

The English sessions of the Monologues take place on February 18, 19 and 20 at 8pm; the Spanish sessions take place on Febraury 12, 13 and 14 at 8pm. Tickets are available online only at http://thevaginamonologuesbarcelona.bpt.me/.
