    Alex, a young woman, is increasingly getting tired of adult life. Her daily routine is restricted by norms and expectations of the modern world, and social media have replaced human interaction.

In this mysterious place, you are free to follow your instincts and explore your deepest desires.

    Synopsis

    In I Live for Menopause, Dayna McLeod uses her queer, aging, body to confront ageism with humour to imagine a menopausal future that is full of promise. Based on Lady Gaga’s 2013 Applause, Montreal musician Jackie Gallant scores a slamming dance track full of throbbing beats, synth, and underwater majesty.

    Originally staged as a performance, this work has evolved into a video featuring over-50 heroines, a singing bottle of lube, an adventurous pink unicorn, and an animated vagina who has an underwater bathtub solo.

    Director: Dayna McLeod
