THE RED PILL
A PERFORMANCE & WORKSHOP
The Red Pill is a performance and a workshop spawning from the #metoo movement. It deals with questions of sexual harassment and inequality, and invites the participants to explore the ethics of our day-to-day communication as human beings.
The workshop starts with a short performance, where the masculine side of sexual harassment is being investigated: we follow the journey of a young man from loneliness towards desperate acts, and his communication with the outside world.
After the performance the participants are invited to explore the questions and the provocations introduced in the scene. These will be explore through discussion and physical and spatial exercises.
The Red Pill premiered in 2018 in Helsinki at secondary schools and professional institutions and was produced by Malmitalo and the Helsinki City.
