Hunt & Darton
The Mum Show
Throughout the Festival
The Mum Show is the new project from acclaimed performance company Hunt & Darton (H&D Café, Radio Local).
Interrogating their identity as mums and the cultural experience of motherhood. Inviting a group of mums to collaborate with them through a series of workshops.
With one born every minute, its a very regular thing to become a mother, so regular how could it possibly be the biggest
transformation a woman might go through in her life. With 1 in 10 woman (and fathers) experiencing post-natal depression its hard to ignore that there is some seismic stuff going on. Using their own experience of becoming mums H&D want to explore the highs and lows of this metamorphosis and create a space for collective catharsis.
Armed with the power of art, H&D want to make work about this with a group of nonperformer’s identifying as mothers. The workshops uses honed and humorous techniques to collectively produce a podcast, offering far more than your usual parent bumph. Then to truly celebrate and climax their shared experience they will attempt a flash mob performance.
