Nora Goes 2 Space, Motherfuck*r!
Part outer space drag show, part Norwegian kitchen sink drama, part American karaoke opera, Nora Goes 2 Space, Motherfuck*r! is a blistering examination of the housewife and her role in the home yesterday and tomorrow, seen through the eyes of Nora Helmer in Henrik Ibsens A Dolls House, and through a contemporary queer critique of the seminal feminist texts The Second Sex by Simone de Beauvoir and The Feminine Mystique by Betty Friedan.

By irreverently deconstruction Ibsens play into a series of 1990s female punk rock anthems, monologues, and vignettes modeled after a series of 1950s housewife etiquette films that were actually show in cinemas as feminist propaganda, Nora Goes 2 Spac, Motherfuck*r! times itself towards the future by looking at the nascency of second wave feminism, celebrating past progresses and triumphs, and by being searingly truthful about how far we still have to go before were all equal.
