How would you describe your sexuality? How does desire live and change? Where all can pleasure be found? Whose ejaculation is still a taboo?
The word ejaculation means both sexual climax and a sudden, emotional burst of words, a desire to be heard. Ejaculation Falls is a performance where a group of people gather together to celebrate sexual diversity. It is an opportunity to share things regarding sex and sexuality that are often hidden or silenced in public discourse.
A dialogue comprised of different experiences, the performance leads its viewers to the other side of norms and collective notions. It invites us to examine sexuality's power and various dimensions, to give new words to the ways in which sexuality is spoken of. Ejaculation Falls is a place for questions, change, and the realisation of a more sex-positive world.
The piece was convened by Essi Rossi, a Helsinki-based director and dramaturge who works diversely in the fields of theatre and performance art. Rossi has worked with gender, sexuality, and their potential for years with works such as Ejaculation - Discussions About Female Sexuality, which premiered at the Finnish National Theatre in 2018 and toured both in Austria and at the Edinburgh Fringe festival in Scotland.
