Families Are Formed Through Copulation
Families Are Made Through Copulation by PME (Canada). The PME show Families Are Made Through Copulation focuses on the theme of the family and how it relates to our contemporary world. With a cast of three performers representing the traditional family (mother, father, daughter) the production uses the fact that everyone in the audience has a family and can relate to the thematic territory of the production.

There is a joke that is sometimes made about the new PME show Families Are Formed Through Copulation. The joke is that Families Are Formed Through Copulation is a show designed to convince the audience not to have children or if they already have children simply not to have any more.
Why should they not have children? Well, first they should honestly try to assess just exactly how they feel about their own parents. If this proves insufficient perhaps they might also contemplate the fact that the world we live in isn’t particularly fit to bring a child into. Keep in mind this is only a joke. We are well aware of the fact that we will essentially convince no one.
Families Are Formed Through Copulation is a co-production between PME and the Forum Freies Theatre (Düsseldorf) made possible with the support of the Kunststiftung NRW, created in residency and co-presented by Usine C.
