“Enchanting, then alarming, ultimately heartbreaking… the definition of unmissable” - NOLA Defender

In Nat & Veronica’s She Was Born, 20 audience members are invited into a giant paper pod to bear witness to the full life-cycle of an imaginary extraterrestrial insect. She Was Born explores motherhood, mortality and the idea that, biologically speaking, reproduction is the sole purpose of existence. It’s a story both completely alien and strangely familiar; after all, everything that ever lived was born.

Meet SHE. SHE is a bug. SHE is alone. SHE is a parthenogenetically reproducing invertebrate. And SHE wants to know why she is here.

Nat & Veronica are a creative team dedicated to the creation of provocative and viscerally rich performance work with a strong focus on audience experience. Driven by a desire to find new and powerful potential in live performance their work combines visual spectacle, presence based performance and subtle humor to explore the problem of how to live. They have presented work at the New Orleans Museum of Art, Contemporary Art Center New Orleans and Mount Tremper Arts and were artists in residence at LiveArts Bard. Currently, they split their time between New Orleans and New York's Hudson Valley.
