Hunt & Darton

The Mum Show

Throughout the Festival

This is a past event which has now ended.

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.

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for nearly 250 years. Through our arts education work, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk.

2021 offers hope for the creative sector, and as an arts charity, we are redoubling our efforts to share meaningful art and cultural experiences with people across Norfolk. We rely on support from our audiences, partners and supporters to continue to bring innovative and inspirational programming and commissioning to the region, and to empower those who might not otherwise have access to the life-changing power of the arts.
