Cycle XX provokes and confronts. Through its dramatic depiction, the performance is committed to breaking the taboo 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 further cycle phases. The multitude of stressful physical and psychological fluctuations is burdened with shame at a young age and causes girls and women to strategically prevent their physical exertion and needs - often with the use of hormone preparations and painkillers, which can have various side effects. The social demand to call up constantly high performance at all times makes it difficult to accept mood swings as well as to accept the normal state of hormone-related states as it is.

Dealing openly with the female cycle can break its taboo position in society, normalize the topic and help people with cycles to accept their physical needs.

Direct confrontation is sought, while the drama produced is also broken in a humorous way. Dancers of the ConFusionArt Collective explore the ups and downs of the female cycle.

"... Because it tells us,
That we are dirty,
That we should hide."
