MATTER IS MOTHER: Live-Stream
ABOUT THE SHOW:
"Matter is Mother" is a one-woman magical comedy that explores the parallels between the way we treat the earth and possessions with the ways in which we treat the forgotten feminine within all bodies. In this 80-minute show, Julia Bray plays 8 different characters at an all-inclusive resort called Paradise, where plastic is piling higher by the minute, and a sea monster made of garbage threatens guests vacation by eating them, forcing a sometimes funny, often painful, and ultimately transformative reckoning with their relationship to the feminine-- their feelings, emotions and lives.Through a darkly comedic but heartfelt narrative backed by original song, choreography and visuals, this show invites the audience to consider how healing our relationship to our emotional pain could topple the systems of injustice, and help the planet thrive. By diving headfirst into the intersections of capitalism, patriarchy and the climate crisis this inspirational show was highly praised by Broadway World, who called it " an intelligent and creative look at a global problem that becomes more pressing every day - and it points us toward a solution. It needs to be seen."
As a part of a generous RACC grant, Julia has the opportunity to present this play in full! Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we've decided to take advantage of this bold new virtual world and stream the show LIVE to you on Friday September 25th! This livestream will kick off a weekend of filming, where J hopes to capture the show in even more detail than a live performance can offer, to create a gorgeous promotional video to (fingers crossed and pandemic pending) get this show on the road!
