The central figure of We Bodies is the monster: it is neither animal nor human, neither man nor woman, neither natural nor artificial. It embodies multiplicity, is never entirely unambiguous and thus eludes the social practice of categorizing bodies. The three performers Vittucci, Sobottke and Turinsky also experience projections and phantasms on their bodies. For this reason, they create a series of exorcisms in which they distort pop-cultural figures and phenomena that have a particular influence on categories of "normal" or "beautiful", into monstrousness. While the constructed idea of a natural order collapses, the possibility of reclaiming one's own body opens up.
