'The Virgin Travels' is a celebration of female sexual expression told through the lifespan of one woman as she reconciles with her restrictive Catholic upbringing, her sexuality, and her place in the world.
Chronicling the lifespan of the Virgin from gestation to adulthood, we use music and movement to protest against the pressures put upon female sexual expression. Celebrating the obstacles and joys of female sexuality, we journey with The Virgin as she fights to break free from her learned restraints of religion, the male gaze, shame, and compulsory heterosexuality.
