Ejaculation Falls is an ensemble performance created by Finnish theatre director Essi Rossi for the 2022 edition of SICK! Festival.

Creating a safe space for self-discovery and open discussion, this performance gathers its audience together to celebrate sexual diversity. In addition to the sexual meaning of the word ‘ejaculation’, this new performance explores the original meaning of the word: a sudden verbal exclamation and a desire to be heard.

This performance gathers its audience together to celebrate sexual diversity.

Opening a frank discourse around sexuality, Ejaculation Falls asks questions about pleasure and desire. The piece brings an opportunity to share those ideas and thoughts – regarding sex and sexuality –  that are so often unspoken, hidden or silenced in public conversations. Providing a place for questions, change and the possibility of a more sex-positive world, Ejaculation Falls leads the audience to join an open conversation – to share experiences and find new ways to talk about sex.

Everybody in the audience has the opportunity to join in with the discussion but participation is completely voluntary. You can speak up as much as you wish or just sit back and listen to the conversation. However, this performance is perhaps best suited to those over the age of 18.

Speak up as much as you wish or just sit back and listen to the conversation.

Based in Helsinki, Essi Rossi is a director and dramaturg working primarily in the fields of theatre and live visual art. Much of her work is tethered to the notion of change in an era of mass destruction and desire. With an interest in the performance of gender and sexuality, in 2018 her documentary performance Ejaculations – Discussions About Female Sexuality premiered at the Finnish National Theatre, before being performed at the Edinburgh Fringe and touring across Austria.

Ejaculation Falls is a joint production between the Baltic Circle theatre festival, Espoo City Theatre and SICK! Festival. The performance premiered at the Baltic Circle Festival in Louhi Hall, Espoo Cultural Centre in November 2021. Additionally, Ejaculation Falls is being presented as part of the University of Manchester’s Sexuality Summer School.
