Created And Performed By Amica Hunter
Sept. 15 & Sept. 16 @ 7:30 PM
International Comedian & Weird-Lil’-Gremlin, Amica Hunter, GETS UNDER YOUR SKIN and CRUSHES YOUR FUNNY BONE in this hilarious, captivating, and sometimes-unsettling-comedy about the horrors of living in a body. An intimate, unpredictable exploration of pain, zoology, & collective imagination. ANATOMICA is a hilarious, captivating, and sometimes unsettling comedy about skeletons. Every animal has got one – But which biological structural system is the BEST? With candidness and a comfortably casual tone, Amica reviews the three skeletal systems found in earthly organisms and discusses the limitations of each one. What would it be like to inhabit a body completely alien from our classic human form?
Part stand-up, part storytelling, and part clown, ANATOMICA is an investigation of the inadequacies of different animal body models, and a celebration of the absurdity of being trapped in a body that is limited by pain, fatigue, and ultimately decay. But, you know, make it fun.
