In February 2023, a person named Colleen began an embodied creation project. Nine months later, a human named Wren entered the world. This is a new performance exploration of how we can use our bodies to create, what queer parenthood can feel like, what we might want to embody in this world. Join us for a joyful, terrified, chaotic and introspective celebration.


Created and performed by Colleen Arcturus MacIsaac.
Directed and co-created by Coral Maloney.
Special guest appearances by Linda MacIsaac, Dorian Arcturus Lang, and Wren Arctutus.
