Fertile is a new interactive theatre show, fusing digital and live storytelling that was performed at Festival of the Mind 2022.
Told through a series of games, meta-theatrics, and digital atmospheres of human anatomy, the show will explore the story of a young man’s experience of infertility, coupled with the life-or-death race of sperm.
Infertility rates are on the rise in the Western World; meanwhile the debate on reproducing in a climate emergency has amplified. Fertile explores society’s bias towards a narrative of reproduction, the increasingly infertile world and how an individual is impacted when that narrative is not possible.
Fertile is about being fertile in an increasingly infertile world.
Developed with Professor Allan Pacey, The University of Sheffield & Human Studio.
