Godmother, Birth mother, Working mother, Earth mother, Mother-tongue, Motherland, Mothercare(TM), MILF.

Frauke Requardt (a mother) dunks you in the mess. Mothers is a dance across sticky surfaces with slippery bodies. Time is interrupted (MUMMY!) time drags on (AGAIN! AGAIN!). This is relentless, this is ferocious, this is euphoric. This is tiny and tender.

Frauke has been making odd, dark and chaotic work for over ten years. In this new performance she is joined by Neil Callaghan and Jake Ingram-Dodd for the mother lode of the mother of all mothers for everyone… and their mother.

Our 11am event is a relaxed performance, where you'll get a cup of tea, your baby can sleep/feed/cry, and you can watch a show without having to find a babysitter. You can come with your child or without. Please bear in mind that this is not a show for children and there is some nudity and adult themes. Think of it as a bit like a baby cinema experience but with a theatre show instead of a film. The show will have gentler lighting and sound. We recommend that children are 12 months or under but it's at the parent / carer's discretion if you would like to bring an older child.

Co-produced by The Place. Commissioned by DanceEast, Cambridge Junction, Tramway and The Place, and supported by The Point, Eastleigh.
