MG (aka I Want a Baby! Reimagined)

MG (aka I Want a Baby! Reimagined)

EMPAC Theatre

April 26, 2019 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Angela Beallor's presentation is a queer adaptation of Sergei Tret'iakov's 1926 play I Want a Baby! This performance condenses the Soviet-era play with contemporary overlays and additions of dancers! experimental sound! video projection! & much much more.

Come meet Milda Grignau, a cultural worker building a communal nursery who decides that she would also like to contribute a new proletarian citizen (without a father or a partner) to the development of the new society. Explore themes of (queer) reproduction, eugenics, utopianism, and more as they relate to early Soviet Russia and our contemporary moment.
