Global Belly / Flinn Works
This installation-performance portrays people entangled in the surrogacy business – a branch riddled with complex ethical, emotional and legal issues. Breezy agents meet content surrogates, arguing feminists encounter loving intended fathers. This performance shifts between borderless desire, finely balanced intimacy, heated debate and the cool logic of the market.
Flinn Works (Berlin and Kassel/Germany) produces multifaceted pieces about our globalised world. The productions are always combined with preliminary research periods with international teams from all disciplines examining sociopolitical issues. The format of the respective shows is developed through the political, aesthetic and cultural attitudes of the artists involved. Flinn Works produces for audiences in Berlin and Bangalore, Dar Es Salaam and Dakar, Kassel, Aarau and in between.
