CYST-ER ACT is a new work written about Cathrine Hoffmann’s personal experience of having an ovary removed due to a large cyst that took over her entire stomach, and the discoveries of other women’s womb difficulties. It uncovers lost knowledge about women’s bodies and how these interior things occur through ovary blues, punk, death metal and some gospel numbers thrown in. A messy, musical ritual – Madame Ovary meets The Devils – probing into reproductive mishaps and monstrosities. Welcome to the wonders of the womb.
