Monsteria is mischievous, monstrous, delicate, revengeful and ridiculous, distorting stereotypes, contorting body parts, revealing assumptions and fighting off expectations. Three women are exploding at the seams, barely contained, and leaking clues to their identity as they trample through tropes! Who are these women as they unburden themselves of layers of artifice?
Revealing feminine bodies in pieces, turning them upside down, stretching them to breaking point, laughing at this ludicrous posturing, how long can their true selves remain concealed? Playing with expectations of feminine bodies Monsteria ask their audience, "What are you looking at?" and celebrate with them, the risky sleight of hand that is circus.
