ZYKLUS XX short film, audience reactions
FESTIVAL AUDIENCE FEEDBACK VIDEOS • 6m 7s
ZYKLUS XX, 13min., Switzerland, Dance
Directed by Johannes Franke, Confusionart Collective
Zyklus XX provokes and confronts. Through its dramatic depiction, the performance advocates the breaking of taboos on the female cycle. The topic is not only the frequently defamed bleeding, but above all the emotional and physical ups and downs of the menstrual cycle phases. The diverse range of stressful physical and psychological fluctuations is burdened with shame at a young age and causes girls and women to suppress their physical abilities and needs - often with the use of hormone preparations and painkillers, which can have various side effects.
