The Matriarx takes the experiencer into a world where matriarchal structures have endured. It is a parallel world in which people treat each other based on a different set of societal rules. This has its effect on social, economic and the political life. Family and intimate relationships function differently. How do you perceive yourself in a world that follows different structures? The Matriarx will open the experiencers’ horizons by raising their curiosity and by empowering them.
This experience will attract everyone who is curious about societal change

We pitched the project again on re:publica in may and also at the Kaleidoscope Community where it ran together with other projects for the Femme Future Grant.
After finding our coproduction partner Arcana Studio in Canada we got production funding in 2020 at the MBB and the CMF in Canada. Like everything else Corona slowed the production process down a lot, but now we finished “The Matriarx” and are currently showing it at festivals.
How does one create a world with it’s set of own rules that have been existing for thousands of years only we let it lose its magic?
