"The cuckoo is a parasitic species of bird that survives by laying its eggs in the nests of other birds. The cuckoo's eggs mimic the shape, size, and even color of the invaded nests, a sneaky shape shifter.

While the cuckoo can grow up to three times larger than her surrogate mother, the mother will continue to feed her."
Megan Solis strives for a forceful intimacy with her audiences questioning the communal pursuit of happiness.

Glory West’s odyssey encapsulates a monstrous feminine mystique, holding tightly to both self-inflicted hysteria and hapless horror.
