fem baby is nothing you need and everything you desire.

this performance is an experience of soundbody play in conversation with an audience. fem baby is based in improvisation, queer pleasure, Black feminist politics and gender fuckery. kaijo is researching themes of mess, mass, exhibition, fantasies and arousal. fem baby is interested in consensually fucking the audience and proposing questions pertaining to self, interdependence and late-stage capitalism.
