“We’re worried about what we think about vaginas and even more worried that we don’t think about them. We’re worried about our own vaginas. They need a context of other vaginas – a community, a culture of vaginas. There’s so much darkness and secrecy surrounding them – like the Bermuda Triangle. Nobody ever reports back from there.”
Eve Ensler wrote the first draft of “The Vagina Monologues” in the mid-1990s following interviews she conducted with over 200 women about their views on sex, relationships, their bodies and violence against women.
The Obie Award-winning “Vagina Monologues” is made up of a varying number of monologues read by any number of women. The whole production relates somehow to the vagina — sex, love, rape, female genital mutilation, birth, orgasm or simply as a physical aspect of the body.
Two Mérida performances of “The Vagina Monologues” will be performed by a 12-member female cast comprised of English-speaking expats and local Mexican women – in English and some Spanish.
The first show is 8 p.m. Thursday, March 8, (International Women’s Day), at Tapanco Centro Cultural, Calle 47 and 68; the second is 7 p.m. Saturday, March 10, at Casa T’ho, Calle 45 and Paseo de Montejo.
Suggested donation at the door of $100 pesos. Seating is limited, so first come, first served.
All proceeds will be donated to the charity Yucatan Giving Outreach.
