Gaia-Projekt. Eine Cyborg-Oper

Gaia-Projekt. Eine Cyborg-Oper

by kainkollektiv

Cooperation with kainkollektiv, tak Berlin, and Ringlokschuppen Ruhr

First performance

Gaia is the mythological Mother Earth, the female principle connecting everything that exists. Gaia creates, destroys, gives birth, and multiplies. In “Project Gaia,” the Bochum-based artist collective kainkollektiv explores issues of motherhood and artistic identity.

Based on their “bitch mother manifesto,” ten women from Canada, Cameroon, Iran, Croatia, and Germany set out to find a space for the deliberation of nature, nurture, art, and the universe. This multimedia theatrical event asks important questions about the future of our planet: Who will we be/have been tomorrow?
