Theme 2: Queer reproductive justice

Flinn Works: Global Belly_Zoom
A Zoom Performance About Transnational Surrogacy

Global Belly_Zoom portrays people embroiled in the surrogacy industry. Professional agents meet content surrogates and argumentative feminists encounter loving fathers-to-be. With its ethical complexity and emotional polarisation, its legal grey zones and its medical realities the industry comes alive on the Zoom stage.

Global Belly_Zoom is the digital version of the stage play Global Belly. People from all over the world can participate and interact in the performance. How involved you become as an audience member is up to you.

Flinn Works is an award-winning independent theatre company from Berlin, Germany. With a focus on feminist and postcolonial topics, Flinn Works performances and installations are research based and devised with a team of international artists.
