Overview

What’s more frightening: catapulting yourself through the air and testing your physical limits night after night as a circus performer – or motherhood?

This is the world premiere of a powerful multimedia performance that explores what happens when some of the country’s strongest and fittest women navigate the trials and joys of becoming a mother. When your whole career is based on your body’s ability to do seemingly impossible things, can you ever be the same again after giving birth?

Using film, recorded voices, photography and live performance, Me, Mother will tell the stories of these women with disarming honesty – their experiences, fears, and glorious highs.

London based multimedia studio MES bring together the talents of director Matilda Leyser (Improbable theatre company) and writers Duncan Wall and John Ellingsworth.

A matinee will take place on Saturday 23 April. Although this is not a children’s show, parents are welcome to bring babes-in-arms.
