About the show

Mouthpiece follows one woman, for one day, as she tries to find her voice. Interweaving a cappella harmony, dissonance, text and physicality, two performers express the inner conflict that exists within a modern woman’s head: the push and the pull, the past and the present, the progress and the regression.


“One of the most incisive commentaries on contemporary womanhood I’ve ever heard. This show lays bare in an emotionally authentic, creative, often funny, self-reflective and guileless way what it’s like to be a woman in our society.” My Entertainment World

“★★★★…If the Olympics had an event for synchronized swimming minus the pool, Norah Sadava and Amy Nostbakken would be contenders for a gold medal.” The Globe and Mail

★★★★★ 5 STARS “Truly astounding stuff” The Stage

★★★★★ 5 STARS “An extraordinarily well considered, deeply thought insight into the essence of femaleness. Ambitious and unique, it’s an education of the self.” Edinburgh Festival Magazine

★★★★★ 5 STARS “one of the most informed, empathetic, complex articulations of female selfhood and female voices that I have ever seen” Broadway Baby
