'Mea culpa. Mea culpa. Mea maxima culpa.' The Virgin Travels is a challenging, powerful and often funny piece, using music and movement to explore the tension between queerness and a restrictive Catholic upbringing. Chronicling the lifespan of one woman from gestation to adulthood, we illuminate her struggle to come to terms with her identity, accept herself and find her place in the world. Celebrating the difficulties and rewards of female queerness, we journey with The Virgin as she fights to break free from her learned restraints of religion, the male gaze, shame and compulsory heterosexuality.
