“sex: f“

Organiser Mari-Liis Lill, Hilje Murel, Ursula Ratassepp, Evelin Võigemast/ Vaba Lava

It’s a show for everybody who is discouraged by the fact that there are only women on stage – because men just are more interesting.

It’s a show for everybody who is looking forward to seeing exclusively women on stage.

It’s a show for men who just made a spicy comment.

It’s a show for women who would rather be a man. And women who think that being a woman is the best thing in the world.

It’s a show for everybody who shares their time between work, children, relationship, friends and society and keep wondering how it’s possible after all.

It’s a show for those who read women’s magazines, write for women’s magazines and pose for the covers of women’s magazines.

It’s a show for those who detest women’s magazines.

It’s a show for men who cook, clean and do laundry just as much as their partner.

It’s a show for women who would rather renovate a bathroom or fix a motorcycle, if only men darned socks and sang lullabies to their children.

It’s a show for women who haven’t dared to ask for a pay raise or, despite asking, have never got it. And for men who know their women colleagues earn less but find at least four good reasons for that.

It’s a show for everybody who thinks by now: “These are not real problems!” Or get mad at stern and hairy feminists subsidized by taxpayers.

It’s a show for everybody who thinks feminists are stern and hairy.

It’s a show for everybody who’s actually a feminist, whether a man or a woman, even without being aware of it yet.

And most definitely it’s a show for everybody who wishes to bring up their children in a better world: better for both girls and boys.

It is a show by four women, Mari-Liis Lill, Hilje Murel, Ursula Ratasepp and Evelin Võigemast. What do they have in common? They are all actresses, mothers and wives, connected by their sex: f. They are in their thirties and dream about doing a show without the need to giggle, hug, hop and blush on stage.

Premier on 25th November 2015.

After the second performance on 26th November 2015 there is artists´ talk with the audience.
