LadyM

Joe’s Movement Emporium

TUESDAY JULY 9 - SATURDAY JULY 27

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.

“You are important to the universe.
it needs you, almost as much as you need it.

Annie Jump, a small-town teen and science genius, comes face to face with her worst nightmare: a popular girl. When she learns that this girl with great hair might be an intergalactic super computer tasked with bringing humanity to the stars, she must decide what is worth sacrificing to fulfill her destiny.
