MetadataShow full item record
Eat Me is a praxis exploration in how to destabilize theatrical form in order for an artist to speak their truth as fully as possible. Inspired by the Italian Futurists, this journey takes into account different forms of post-dramatic theatre, and how they can be manipulated and received by an audience. This paper examines a queer feminist read of Marinettis Italian Futurist manifesto and attempts to mirror this queer feminist lens in the rehearsal process as well as the final performance. The performance tells it's story through bodies and cakes. The femme bodies continuously consume, even when it becomes harmful.
