Joe’s Movement Emporium
Based on interviews with DC women about their attitudes toward menstruation, this ensemble-devised piece is part incantation, part mystery, part interactive comedy show. LadyM and her three witches make a potion, cast a spell, and send audiences down a rabbit hole of poetry, horror, ambition, and blood.
LadyM pits the poetic and absurdist lives of the modern, menstruating woman against the themes, characters, and language in Shakespeares Macbeth to explore blood, ambition, sorcery as power, and violence. Delving into the deep, dark, and bloody traditions of womens stigmatized bodies, we push these difficult issues through the lens of grotesque comedy in this highly stylized, absurdist, and radical feminist bloodbath.
