Beautiful Carcass World Premiere

  • Alhadeff Theater at Cornish Playhouse 201 Mercer Street Seattle, WA, 98109 United States (map)

Beautiful Carcass is a bewitching world where everything is on display. Hyper-glamorized imagery juxtaposed with the mundane explores a tangled web of shame, pride, humor, despair, isolation and camaraderie. The performers reflect the interplay between objectification and empowerment through strength and resiliency as they navigate an insidious desire to capture and own beauty. In a culture driven by youth, money and competition, glamour is a source of power that quickly becomes distorted. The pursuit of the beautiful body becomes relentless and internalized, an object to be squeezed, sculpted, hacked at and zipped up. Through centuries of subjugation across many cultures the female form has been revered, hoarded, cherished and abused. A dark, alluring carnival for the senses, Beautiful Carcass shines light on womxn’s issues through lenses of intersectional feminism and surrealist fantasy.
