Inspired by 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 behaviours useful to the eco-regime.
Under pressure from the government, the body becomes a site of superhuman strengths, extinction, self-preservation, discomfort and monstrosity, each seeking to find its own expression. Masks, dance, spoken word and live music are orchestrated to explore metamorphosis as a force that puts humans in an unavoidable relationship with other
living and non living creatures.
