For many women, the desire to give birth is innate. What if, however, this desire was restricted by legal regulations?
Bringing three fierce women on stage, this exhilarating work looks at the relationship between personal and professional life. Using her own personal experience and other women’s narratives, Renata Piotrowska-Auffret examines the yearning for motherhood through a network of reproduction policies, numerous promises and attempts to exploit it.
