Dare to enter the realm of this darkly humorous and poignant work-in-progress showing that unravels the intricate connections between mothering, monstrosity, creative obsession, and technology.
Drawing parallels with Mary Shelley, her sisters, and her iconic Frankenstein, this interactive performance explores the euphoria and horror of mothering against the backdrop of technocapitalism -- where the awe of creating life collides with the desire to control it. Everyone lauds an innovator, a creator, a founder, while excluding those birthing actual human life.
This experiment invites you to engage in choices for the characters as well as contribute to real-time conversations that challenge the way we perceive mothering and our blind faith in technology.
In the run-up to the showing, you are encouraged to add to an interactive lobby installation that explores the themes of the work.
This is a collaboration between theatre maker/writer/performer Catherine Duquette, director/interactive technology designer Ruth Sergel, and director/filmmaker Bronwyn Donohue. This iteration of Mary & Her Monster has been created in conversation with artist-mothers and women in tech.
