Presented by Centaur Theatre’s 2021 Wildside Festival
MoonCow Theatre Co. presents an abridged version of its haunting adaptation of Night Cows, the 1979 seminal theatrical text by Québécois & Indigenous creator, Jovette Marchessault.
It begins at dusk. A vachette describes how her mother removes the shackles of the day and society, transforming into a sensual, grotesque, night cow. Her mother opens herself in two, she splits herself in four expanding into the milky way; her daughter riding her back as they go to wake the crows. A Queer feminist fantasia that blurs the line between human and animal, mother and daughter, sky and earth, inviting audiences into the milky ecstasy of liberation.
Produced by MoonCow Theatre Co.
