A powerful and evocative new aerial theatre production from Paper Doll Militia exploring female fertility, sexuality and choice. A deeply personal and political true story of egg donation, Egg weaves together personal testimony, live original music and stunning aerial artistry.
Egg combines visual theatre and movement with a script written by Sarah, reflecting her own personal experience. The aerial work makes the emotional landscape of egg donation tangible for the audience and mirrors the physical distortion and discomfort of the effects of hormones on the human body. Original music is interwoven with the show creating the soundscape within the story and the set. Animations detail the often-misunderstood internal world of a woman, while the aerial acrobatics energize the clear PVC plastic set. Egg follows both the medical side of the process and the complex legal and ethical implications of surrendering the rights to your genetically linked child.
