Audience Talk following 'Monstrous'
"Microplastics have been found in the human placenta. It's like having a cyborg baby that is no longer just made of human cells." It sounds like the title of a science fiction movie, but in our present, babies are considered cyborgs before they are even born! Let´s discuss that topic in the audience talk afterwards.
Inspired by Francesca Sarah Toich's novel „Ad Bestias“, monstrous is set in a dystopian eco-dictatorship. The piece investigates different forms of pregnancy: women are artificially inseminated with animals, plants, minerals, emotions, natural phenomena and behaviors useful to the eco-regime. In the Audience Talk following the performance the artist Daniela Marcozzi will be there with her team of performers and the masks that have been borrowed from Museo MascheraSartori. What would you like to know about these extremely special and valuable masks from italy (worth more than 6000€). What do you think about the idea behind comparing a pregnancy with a science fiction scenario?

About the Performance
Freely inspired by Toich’s novel “Ad Bestias”, the physical theater piece “monstrous” is set in a dystopian eco-dictatorship. Under the pressure of the regime, the human body becomes a deviant place of preservation and self-extinction at the same time, a
playground of tensions in which superhuman strength, discomfort, absurdity and monstrosity find their own expression. The piece investigates different forms of pregnancy: women are artificially inseminated with animals, plants, minerals, emotions, natural phenomena and behaviors useful to the eco-regime.
