ABOUT THE SHOW


“We LOVE BABIES. Does anyone have a baby? I mean we need a real baby a fresh baby, one that swam in turned around and came out again. Still wet and warm. …”


In SPRINGTIME Apetrea and Sigourney dream of a queer endless sunrise. They stomp around the stage as a tree, a bear, a bee and a bouquet- trying to come together, cum together, and get together.


SPRINGTIME is a mix of dance expression, comedy and satire. Since 2014 Apetrea and Sigourney have applied feminist strategies, queer theory, nightlife aesthetics and anti- patriarchal ideas to make shows exploring power and gender. SPRINGTIME follows up on I’m a Very Understanding Woman- which challenged notions of womanhood, horror and understanding. SPRINGTIME takes off from kid shows, and stages nature’s couples- it’s a new version of the Birds and the Bees.


Queers, for example, especially those who do not choose to be biologically reproductive, a people without children, are, within the dominant culture, people without a future. – José Esteban Muñoz
