I'm the Monster is a live music perfromance by a Finnish multidisciplinary artist Katja-Maria/Kay Taavitsainen. The performance transforms fluidly from a bodily installation towards a somatic symphony.

Structured around Taavitsainen's debut album, the performance centres on a non-binary body and aims to unlock the pleasure and desire that the body inhabits. In the created space, we travel towards the existence of a non-binary person through heartbreaks, realisations, dreads and dreams — through the cyclic death and rebirth.
