For a festival performance at TANEC PRAHA Festival, we are looking for dance-enthusiastic participants (40-65 years) who identify as women and/or are experiencing the menopause. When the Bleeding Stops by Lovísa Ósk Gunnarsdóttir addresses the silence, the taboo that seems to surround the menopause, as well as personal experiences of aging. The performative piece shows a world of vulnerability, shame, empathy and humour. It takes us into the private lives of various persons and delves into the many layers of (female) experiences associated with the menopause. When the Bleeding Stops celebrates life in all its phases!
No dance or stage experience is required. The project language is English.

Participation begins in April and initially takes place online. It includes a personal exchange with the choreographer and dancing in your own living room. During this process, short videos may be created and parts of them shown on stage after consultation with the participants. Participants are invited to take part in the performances and dance on stage. 
Workshop on site at Krenovka, Husitská 22, Prague: Sun June 9, 15:00-18:30 
Performances: Mon June 10, at 20:00 at PONEC - dance venue as a part of Tanec Praha 

Please let us know your interest in participating in the project by 7 April 2024 by email to Here we will also answer any questions you may have about the artistic project.
