International Comedian & Weird-Lil’-Gremlin, Amica Hunter (they/them), GETS UNDER YOUR SKIN and CRUSHES YOUR FUNNY BONE in this hilarious, captivating, and sometimes-unsettling-comedy about skeletal systems and the horrors of living in a body. ANATOMICA is an intimate, unpredictable exploration of pain, zoology, & collective imagination.

Every animal has a skeleton – But which biological structural system is the BEST? With candidness and a comfortably casual tone, Amica reviews the three skeletal systems found in earthly organisms and discusses the limitations of each one. What would it be like to inhabit a body completely alien from our classic human form? A gloriously deranged Ted-Talk by a wanna be scientist clown school graduate.

Part stand-up, part storytelling, and part clown, ANATOMICA is an investigation of the inadequacies of different animal body models, and a celebration of the absurdity of being trapped in a body that is limited by pain, fatigue, and ultimately decay. But, you know, make it fun!

Praise For Anatomica:

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ (5 stars out of 5)

"Amica Hunter’s stand-up set disguised as a serious science lesson is like the mutant love child of Laurie Anderson and David Attenborough…Anatomica is an hour of chewy, fleshy charm.”

-Fish Griwkowsky, The Edmonton Journal 

“An expertly crafted piece of theater… you’ll walk away wondering what you’ve just seen and wishing for more. Anatomica is definitely a must-see.”

-Kirk Sheppard, The Sappy Critic, Cincinnati, OH

“Biological, philosophical and full of silly costumes and amusing anecdotes, ‘Anatomica’ is both entertaining and thought-provoking.”

-Lania berger, Orlando Sentinel

“Anatomica is a kick in the pants that delightfully reflects the roots of alternative performance.”  

-Mallory Moad, Kings River Life Magazine
