AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'An exciting, feminist sci-fi theatrical experience, Mara KORPER is set in a futuristic world where gender is obsolete and the flesh must remain whole.

'This brilliant and terrifying new theatrical work explores themes of extremism, gender and body image in a dystopian future, picking up where Orwell and Huxley left off.

'Fusing experimental sound and technology with absurdist expressionism, Mara KORPER is on the cutting edge of experimental feminist theatre.'
