The Chinese Department of Sun Yat-sen University (Guangzhou) staged the Chinese debut of “The Vagina Monologues” in December 2003. Since then, this feminist play, which came from the US and has been committed to the elimination of gender-based violence, has incited a vagina hurricane that blew all over mainland China.
Zhihe Society of Fudan University, Shanghai Beaver Club, Beijing Bcome Group, all these different crews performed this play in various ways. On campuses they performed, in theatres they performed, in cafes they performed, on the streets they performed, and on public transportation they performed. The Vagina Monologues received many Chinese names: Cloudy Vagina, Our Vaginas, OurSelves, and For Vagina’s Sake. All these names have the same so-called “ear-piercing” key word—VAGINA.
“Vagina. I’ve said it”, this is a speaking process as well as an acting process; this is a self-awakening process as well as a public-accepting process; this is a learning-recognizing process as well as a localizing process. After ten years, we revisit the stories of vaginas. We talk to the participants, visit current actors and listen to their vagina stories.
