Mara Korper opens at at Theatre Works - May 12-22

One of Melbourne’s most innovative independent theatre companies, Citizen Theatre, return with their latest bold offering. Mara KORPER written and directed by Jayde Kirchert, with composition by Anthony Lyons. Presented by Citizen Theatre enter a feminist sci-fi spectacle that follows in the footsteps of dystopian classics such as Handmaid’s Tale, Brave New World and 1984.

Mara KORPER is set in a futuristic, dystopian world where gender is obsolete, the flesh must remain whole, and bodies are owned by the government. This brilliant and terrifying new theatrical work explores themes of extremism, corruption, gender and body image. Mara KORPER is staged in a non-traditional way, seating audiences in the round in private perspex boxes. Fusing the latest sound technology with absurdist expressionism, Mara KORPER is truly on the cutting edge of experimental feminist theatre.
