Birth Preparation Course

Birth Preparation Course is an intergalactic, interactive lesson on human reproduction taught by a future species in deep space.

Drawing on materials taught by midwives and doulas in birth preparation courses around the world, the performance employs text, movement, music, props and audience participation to convey information about how each and every human came into being.

The class places emphasis on the placenta, a mysterious, often hidden and essential organ. The class is held in English.
