She Was Born

Few creatures are capable of parthenogenesis. In this extraordinary process, mothers procreate without a sexual partner and give birth to exact genetic clones of themselves.

This is a form of immortality.

She Was Born explores the intersection of love and biological imperatives. The show draws the audience into a microscopic universe in order to confront the most basic question of all: Why was I born?

Nature documentary meets Theater of the Absurd in this utterly unique physical performance featuring striking visuals, sly humor and a virtuoso performance that depicts an entire life from birth to death. It’s a story that’s completely alien and strangely familiar. After all, everything that ever lived was born.
