Monstress Mess is a Berlin based theatre collective and was founded in early 2019 by 3 women: Judith Shoemaker (Germany/America/England), Lucie Aron (France) and Rebecca Scott (Australia, Scotland).


The collective is to create and produce artistic work that explores social issues and human behaviour; with a focus on empathising with members of society who are vilified and seen as outsiders. We use our global female perspective to explore the experience of the so-called monsters of our messy world. This process requires an extensive research period working with real-life subjects and with behavioural science professionals. 

Together we have built an international pool of theatre makers from 9 different nations.
