A 6 foot woman and a sex doll take on femininity
In a world where femininity obsesses over smallness in size, voice, opinion, ambition, one 6-foot woman and a sex doll converted into a feminist robot, smash through walls and ceilings to explore how women can embrace bigness in a BIG physical romp.
An unapologetic exploration into the apologetic world of women, a defiant call to confidence.
Coccinellidae combines clown, physical theatre, audio testimonies (BIG Testimonies) of over 100 women exploring their BIGNESS that are woven into the live soundscape.
Coccinellidae joyously connects us with other women to celebrate all of our Bigness.
What if we maximised a woman instead of shrinking her?
It's time to get BIG!
