The Fringe at the Royal Scots Club

The Alien Chicken Remembers Galatea
The Alien Chicken Remembers Galatea is inspired by John Lyly's pastoral comedy, Galatea. Lyly's Galatea follows two maidens, disguised as boys and sent away to escape Neptune's monster, to Diana's Woods. They fall in love, not realising their mutual secret until it's too late. Mofsec's deconstruction focuses on a society that systemically sacrifices young women to Gods and their monsters and where women have limited options for survival, none without a cost. Using female-focused storytelling, Mofsec challenges their ensemble to peel back the layers of oppression and systemic violence that impact all genders.

The Alien Chicken Remembers Galatea was initially workshopped at Action/Adventure Theatre with their Cavalcade of Awesome as part of the 2016 Fertile Ground Festival in Portland, Oregon.

Mofsec produces creatively risky, often original, female focused work. Recognizing that their most lasting impact as an arts group is providing employment and positive process, Mofsec chooses to pay their artists a decent wage and give back to the community. Mofsec was founded by Artistic Director, Kira Atwood-Youngstrom, in 2016 with the shadow handiwork of Managing Director, Will Gebo.
