Maybe I’d like to do it on my own Maybe I’d like to get some real support

Or maybe some assurance only that I will get it Maybe I know how reality works and I want to face it Maybe I’m pissed off and I will think about

consequences later Maybe I’m prepared and Maybe it’s one of the stages

And maybe I have to tell my mother

Or maybe my daughter Or maybe a lady in a newsstand on Central Station

Or maybe the whole world Maybe I don’t need to tell anyone

But I want to know

That I can (from the script)

 

Inspiration to create the performance I’ll just say it and see what happens are collective abortion coming outs, such as the French Manifeste des 343 and Wir haben abgetrieben of 374 women in the pages of West German magazine Stern. The focusis mainly onthecollectiveness of the experience, on the solidarity and empowerment of co-feeling. Our aim is to look at the whole spectrum of different attitudes and not to standardise them.
