Some are plagued by their monthly bleeding, others hide it with shame and others let it flow freely with pride. Menstruation moves between hype and taboo, from the shadows into public awareness. Periods are political because a direct experience is made more difficult due to history and socialization. The interactive performance shares the practice of re-appropriation and invites to come into contact with its own cycle through a sensory vision.
