INFO

A documentary performance about sexuality and desires.

Is female ejaculation the last taboo? A documentary performance about sexuality and desires by Essi Rossi and Sarah Kivi, based on interviews with women from various backgrounds and countries. Through a personal journey, the performance creates a safe space for self-discovery and explores the collective experience of female sexuality.  As well as the sexual meaning of the word ejaculation, this piece explores its original meaning: a sudden verbal exclamation, an emotional outburst of words, the desire to be heard, in an honest dialogue about the most crucial questions of female sexuality.

Essi Rossi & Sarah Kivi

 

Essi Rossi is a Helsinki-based theatre director bridging the gap between traditional theatre and live art. Her forward-facing work frequently returns to the themes of mass destruction and collective desire. Previous shows include Tainaron, an adaptation of a science fiction novel by Leena Krohn (Helsinki Festival and Finnish National Theatre, 2018) and ICE, which examined fascism and the mentality of cults (Klockriketeatern and Von Krahl, Estonia 2018). Before that, she worked on NIGHTSCHOOL, a show about the eco-crisis. Ejaculation – Discussions About Female Sexuality was originally performed in 2018 at Finland’s National Theatre.

Sarah Kivi is a Finnish electronic musician, singer and sound artist. She is one-half of the Berlin-based trip hop duo Stop the Chameleon. In February 2018, she released her debut solo album and is currently creating her second studio album. Combining ultramodern composition and recording methods with more conventional song writing approaches, her musical output is constantly evolving in new and inventive ways.
