Makita massive menopause & guests: Leave my uterus alone Starting from the obstetrical “science” of the Renaissance, the performance stages a lecture on the attempt of control by the men of the uterus, black space, unknown and disturbing, while Dr. Makita examines by ultrasound the body in / meat of his patient, gradually covered with pieces of meat and other offal. A gesture of resistance against the seizure of men on women’s bodies for patriarchal and capitalist purposes. With: Nelson Irsapoulle / Erzsi Kukorelly / Angela Marzullo / Jazmin Taco.
