A cabaret about abortion? Impossible, or so it would seem, considering how terminations of pregnancy are still stigmatized as creepy and cruel. Julie Béna's cabaret challenges this assumption. Joined on stage by her mother and daughter, she embarks upon a hyperbolic three-chapter show of stories, songs, mimes, and dances, aiming to elicit that little vibration right before screams of terror or laughter.
