By MacKenzie Lad

"Natalie Liconti was pretty dissatisfied with the theatre scene as she experienced it, but instead of throwing in the towel she took matters into her own hands and started her own theatre collective, Daughter Product.
Two productions later and with the third (A Dyke’s Guide To Fair Play), set to premiere at this year’s Fringe Festival, the interdisciplinary, devised performance collective is quietly rebelling against the theatre industry from the inside."
Wildside Review: Daughter Product depicts female oppression in the dystopian, deviant “The Gentle Art of Punishment”
By Camila Fitzgibbon
Published January 12 2019
“The Gentle Art of Punishment is altogether an interesting, intelligent interpretation of Foucauldian and queer theories… Liconti’s Drew Barrymore TV segment is a high point to unveil these characters’ intricate, fractured relationships with friends, mothers, lovers, other women, and themselves. It’s certainly a thought-provoking conception – quite humorous and enjoyable, actually, in its moments of levity…
Daughter Product remains a valuable player in the contemporary movement in Montreal and its experimental, rebellious brainchild is quintessentially Wildside.”

"NL: Our hope is that by normalizing inclusive and representative work, better conversations will be had through entertainment. I felt represented and learned about lesbian culture in two places: the Gay Village and TV. Queer culture is often forgotten, and it is through participation that queer people get to know their culture, and which of their histories are remembered and memorialized. It seems that very few queer people are raised in places where gay or queer culture and history is taught in the same way that dominant cultural histories and narratives are taught, so entertainment and pop culture become crucial. For me that’s the most important thing: creating a landmark for future generations of where we are today — even if it falls short in five years."
