I am thinking of joining an event in Osaka held in the coming February. A feminist group is organising the event. They'll perform "The Vagina Monologues" both English and Japanese. I'd got a flier to call for the participants at a book club meeting some days ago. Since then I've wanted to join as a performer. I love performing on the stage. However, there was only one thing disturbing me.
I read Wikipedia for more information. In the article the history of the drama in Japan is also mentioned and it says that some actresses said some dirty words in Japanese on the stage when they performed a Japanese version.
I am not sure if I could explain well enough. I wouldn't care saying "cunt" or "vagina" in English, maybe it would also be okay on the stage. Because English is not my native language. I don't think that I understand as well as native speakers do, what those words exactly mean(imply?). And maybe it will be the same, for those who are not Japanese native speakers, it might be impossible how I feel when I just imagine saying those words in Japanese.
