The Otsukisama performance is a homage to the most specific organ of a woman’s body, an expressive play of light and sound effects, body movements and facial grimaces, a manifestation of the scary, strange, pleasure and celebration. It is a homage to the genitals and their secretions, their connection with the cycles and processes, a homage to the female and the corporeal at different stages of life. It speaks of what is often considered unpleasant and unclean, even obscene, in which mucus or a lack of mucus intertwine, menstrual blood, lust and delight.
